Just once we'd actually like to see Ken get in the wrestling ring with one of these Tube Lines bosses so he could literally slam them.

After all, it's the only real way to settle delicate and complicated transport policies: get in a leotard and start practicing your 'corkscrew leg drop'.

But until that day comes we will just have to make do with figurative slamming which is what Ken got up to on LBC radio yesterday.

As part of his 'slamming' Ken gave Tube Lines a deadline of six months to sort out their act or "get out of town" (ok, so he didn't really say "get out of town", but it would have been cool if he had wouldn't it?).

What he did say was that the privatisation of the Tube system was "a disaster" and that bosses "deliberately" let engineering works overrun because it's easier for them to pay the fines than send another team down to finish the job:

"It's not an accident, it's deliberate. The maintenance of the Underground was done for the previous 70 years without over-running in the morning."

Tube Lines have obviously denied all charges, and a spokesperson was quoted as saying yesterday:

I WILL TAKE YOU DOWN BOY! I WILL TAKE YOUR ASS TO CHURCH. DON'T HATE THE PLAYER, HATE THE GAME, BECAUSE I HAVE BALLS THE SIZE OF GRAPEFRUITS AND WHEN I'M THROUGH WITH YOU YOU'LL BE SPITTING OUT THE SEEDS!
