@RichieVeitch Ta! Wish I didn't have to campaign re #CroydonCrash but @TfL @MayorofLondon REFUSE to respond to my request for investigation why @RAIB @ORR @BTP @SNCLavalin didn't receive @FirstGroupplc TOL Fatigue Audit. @Heidi_LDN?… @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM It's not like @SadiqKhan doesn't know about it...he was Chair of 23 May TfL Board Meeting when @MLiebreich ask for #CroydonCrash #CoverUp to be investigated so that "lessons can be learned" "won't happen again" @ValShawcross was at the same meeting too.
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross . @LeonDaniels inspired me to look into #CroydonCrash #CoverUp by announcing to SSHR Panel YEAR GO TODAY "An audit of First Group’s fatigue management processes had taken place, these were found to be satisfactory & did not give rise to any concerns."…
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd since I was worried about Leon's (and TfL's) long-standing & close relationship with First Group (and w all of TfL's #SurfaceTransport contractors) already, when Sam published her story I only had one reaction: "Get Me that F**g Audit"!…
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd so I eventually got around to filing a couple of FOIs (OK, in December, but throw me a bone here, this #BusSafety #CroydonCrash work is 100% volunteer & I've got a paying job!) FOIs here… & here…
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd & TfL REJECTED both FOIs! How can Leon Daniels announce to TfL's SSHR "no concerns" on 26Jun17 & then TfL refuse to show same audit on 3Jan18 saying it will "prejudice outcome of investigations?" My blog after receiving this bit of news? "Not Going Away"…
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd and that's where TfL being too clever & #UnTransparent made me suspect a #CroydonCrash #Coverup. Why? Because Final RAIB #CroydonCrash Investigation was published on 7Dec17 & DIDN'T MENTION "2017 SAFETY AUDIT" ANYWHERE IN ITS REPORT… SO, WHERE WAS IT?
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd & this is where @LondonAssembly's role in holding the Mayor & TfL to #PublicScrutiny is invaluable. @CarolinePidgeon immediately picked up the ball & started firing MQTs & the Mayor's response = #CampaigningGold. NOTE: You don't 'OVERHAUL' #SAFETY if "No Concerns" #NoseUnderTent
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd @LondonAssembly that "hint" the TfL Audit was refusing to release was important inspired me to write my next blog about TfL's & City Hall's Press #ComplicityMachine which doesn't care if TfL/CityHall hide information from #PublicScrutiny. They'd rather write Puff Pieces!…
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd @LondonAssembly So Caroline Pidgeon AM fired another Feb MQT & Mayor's response PROVED TfL hadn't sent ANYONE the 2017 FirstGroup Croydon Tram Fatigue Audit. Meanwhile 30Jan TfL Board Mtg gave me hope #Safety had changed at TfL since Leon Daniels's "departure" in Dec…
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd @LondonAssembly meanwhile, the missing Fatigue Audit just "fell off a bus" & I started blogging about contents… &… Why? Because contrary to Leon Daniels's public statements a year ago today, the Fatigue Audit DID RAISE SERIOUS CONCERNS #Negligence?
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd @LondonAssembly @InsideCroydon @sdownes @M_Star_Online So ONE YEAR LATER, RAIB'll 'update' #CroydonCrash Investigation to include 'reference to' and 'key findings' of First Group TOL Fatigue Risk Management Systems Audit, but Michael Leibreich's 23 May Statement in front of TfL Board & Mayor's #SILENCE #LACKofACTION only Begs more Qs
@RichieVeitch @TfL @MayorofLondon @raib @orr @BTP @SNCLavalin @FirstGroupplc @Heidi_LDN @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM @SadiqKhan @MLiebreich @ValShawcross @LeonDaniels @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd @LondonAssembly @InsideCroydon @sdownes @M_Star_Online What are lessons I've learned from #CroydonCrash #CoverUp? 1) NEVER believe anyone from TfL/City Hall who tells you they've got #SurfaceTransport Safety Sorted (got it @PippaCrerar? 2) London Assembly is a "firebreak" against TfL "knee-jerk" reaction to be #Untransparent #MQT tbc
