Default Tube chaos : Government spins into action

From the Evening Standard. Note the cunning plan to blame Ken Livingstone,
who has just topped an opinion poll as the person most likely to be elected
Mayor next time:

Transport Secretary Alistair Darling said today the derailments at Camden
Town and, last Friday, at Hammersmith, were of "deep concern" - but he
denied the Government's drive for part privatisation was responsible.

Maintenance schedules had not changed since private companies took over
routine repairs, he insisted. Tube safety was now the responsibility of
London Mayor Ken Livingstone.
