Default Ken takes over London Underground

Just heard Ken Livingstone announcing on Start the Week that he has sacked
10 senior execs at
London Underground and has appointed a new American MD (he's very keen on
Yanks these days, isn't he?). Anyone have any details of who is
going/staying and how much the redundancy packages are going to cost us all?

Gosh, almost exactly the same question that you asked in news:uk.railway
(I've posted an answer there. It's more sensible to cross-post in that
sort of situation ,rather than start two separate threads.)

Correct - didn't discover this group until I'd posted in uk.railway. Thanks
anyway.

post on this newsgroup just how much
money LU exec's are going to squeeze out of us all.


Well, that's what I'd be interested to hear. There must be some
disaffected LUL employees who could shed a bit of light on that.
Incidentally, I think Ken Livingstone got it completely wrong when he
called them 'dullards'. 'Too clever by half', would have been a more
apt soubriquet. I met a couple of them and they seemed to be very
good at making intellectual mountains out of fairly mundane management
molehills. No doubt some no-nonsense American management will sort
things out in a jiffy.
