We need our sleep, Boris

London's mayor proposes that his city is grown-up enough to stay awake all night;
Speaking alongside Tory Chancellor George Osborne at the Tate Modern gallery, Mr [Boris] Johnson said the new plans “will ensure we keep the capital’s economy moving well into the 21st century.”
Naturally, them's fightin' words;
But RMT [Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport workers] general secretary Mick Cash said the announcement was a “blatant pre-election stunt” and described the lack of consultation as “ridiculous.”
“RMT is not opposed to extended running but there are massive issues on staffing, safety and maintenance which have not been addressed and which would need to be signed off by our reps,” he said.
Who's in charge here, anyway?
