Boris Johnson has rather awkwardly been put in the spotlight over a promise he made four years ago.

London Underground staff gave Bo Jo an apparent passive aggressive message using a station’s information board.

Workers at Clapham South station hit out at the Mayor by using his pledge to protect TfL ticket offices as their ‘Quote of the Day’.

The message read: “This Mayor takes his promises to Londoners extremely seriously. Every station that has a ticket office will continue to have one.”

The quotation was taken from a statement made by the Mayor in City Hall in March 2010.

Transport for London wants to save £50million a year by closing all ticket offices and place staff on platforms instead.

Next month members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union (RMT) will stage two 48-hour strikes in opposition to the cuts, with more industrial action expected to follow.
