#CroydonCrash #CoverUp @MayorofLondon @ValShawcross @Heidi_LDN: Kindly note 23May18 @TfL Board Minutes don't properly reflect what @MLiebreich actually said ICYMI "3 Times on 3 Separate Occasions IA 17780 had been sent to @raibgovuk @railandroad @BTP"
Regrettably, narrative City Hall & TfL PUSHING since I exposed #CoverUp January 2018… isn't supported by any FACTS.… @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM #CroydonCrash 7 People DIED, 62 Injured. #ShineALight NOW HT>@christianwolmar @V0LDN
In May18, I formally asked @LondonAssembly #AssemblyTransport to call City Hall & TfL Officials in for Formal Questioning… Why wasn't IA 17780 sent to #CroydonCrash Investigators, Regulators & Police when it'd been sitting in Top Managers' hands for months?
Every response from Mayor & TfL offers lame excuses "Administrative Error" "Genuine Oversight" or Apologies BUT sorry THOSE DON'T PASS THE SNIFF TEST. Why? Well: TfL REJECTED ALL My Dec17 FOIs… &…
TfL then equivocated on @CarolinePidgeon's January MQT asking about Fatigue Audit & 26 June 2017 statement by then-MD @LeonDaniels… (which @samanthajbooth @CroydonAd reported BTW…)
In Feb18, Mayor then revealed in an MQT to @CarolinePidgeon… that TfL had only sent IA 17780 on 12Feb18, long after @raibgovuk & @SNCLavalin had published their #CroydonCrash Investigations & furthermore "it won't be published until all investigations done"
So after receiving a copy of report after it just "fell off a tram" I started publishing it myself. First, FACT report existed AT ALL… & SECOND what report ACTUALLY said…
Was pleased when—after months of pestering (I first 1st contacted @sdownes on 1Nov17)—@InsideCroydon finally got 'round to publishing something about #Fatigue & TfL Surface Transport Safety Performance…
TBF at least I eventually got a reaction from Downes (which is more than can be said for @yourcroydon #Scrutiny chaired by @CroydonSean after my sizeable evidence submission…). Anything result from #Scrutiny Hearing, Sean? Hello?…
MAR18 @CarolinePidgeon rec'd 1st @TfL Letter reporting "Administrative Error" led to #SafetyCritical Fatigue Audit being withheld from @raibgovuk @railandroad @BTP.… I haven't heard anything back from @IanProsser7 but RAIB's Simon French wrote back to me
in JUN18… stating “updated report will include reference to the TfL audit and its key findings.” BTW: I haven't seen any @raibgovuk #CroydonCrash Investigation Update yet. Has anyone? I wonder when we can expect to see it? @BCCletts @ASLEFunion @seanhoyle1
Meanwhile, @RMT asked me to speak about "Lessons Learned from #CroydonCrash" at its Regional… & National Meetings… HT>@Mac5061 @MickTosh @seanhoyle1 speeches which were picked up by @GMB_Union too…
But it was @MLiebreich Bombshell at @TfL Board Meeting on 23 May 2018 which blew "Administrative Error" Excuse OUT OF THE WATER. Go to 3:30 TfL Management told him "3 times on 3 different occasions Audit had been sent to @raibgovuk @railandroad @BTP" 3X!!!
and Mayor's #Contemptuous Responses to @KeithPrinceAM MQTs only piqued my interest further. Can @TfL Chair be SO UNINTERESTED in finding out why @raibgovuk @railandroad @BTP denied key data relevant to investigations? Why's @SadiqKhan willing to remain IGNORANT? @TheSpeakingRog
&—OK maybe COMPLETELY Unrelated—why was @LeonDaniels paid £444,598 compensation for "Loss of Office"?… when Mike Brown announced on 8 September 2017, Leon'd already planned on retiring in 2015 but was "kept on." Hasn't Leon made enough already? #JustAskin
In July @MayorofLondon responded to 2 Letters I'd sent him May… & June giving same excuses received by @CarolinePidgeon @KeithPrinceAM already. "Administrative Error" "Genuine Oversight" "Apologies" #YahtyYah & refusing to go further…
But this isn't over yet, obviously. IMO sanitised TfL Board Minutes just confirm City Hall's & TfL's complicity in #CroydonCrash #CoverUp & sooner they #ShineALight on WHAT HAPPENED, the better. @PrivateEyeNews already on the case (HT>@christianwolmar), so the TRUTH WILL OUT
And—as if to confirm that statement—while I was tweeting this, @TfL just told me the my latest FOI about "Report to the Board re #BusSafety" quoted in @PrivateEyeNews Article will be responded to by 10Sep18.… @christianwolmar
You'd think City Hall & @TfL'd be smart & just #ShineALight on that report & release it for Public Scrutiny. Why? Because if TfL learned anything from #CroydonCrash #CoverUp, any Report re 2 Croydon Crashloads of Death TfL Buses produces evry 6 months might be in my hands already
So @MayorofLondon @Heidi_LDN @ValShawcross please shut down #ComplicityMachine City Hall's been running for @TfL Surface Transport Safety Performance since May 2016.… It's time to Match Words w Deeds! Please #ShineALight or LEAVE…
