Come back, all is forgiven....

.... even if you do look like a cartoon character!!

BBC News reports of an article in Autocar magazine for a new, revised updated & green version of the Routemaster bus that was synonymous with London Transport for decades.

Apparently the new version will run on electric motors which would be powered by battery packs which, in turn, are charged by a hydrogen-fuelled engine and generator.

Sadly the whole scheme has been completely damned as it has been endorsed by none other than Henley MP Boris Johnson, who is the Conservative candidate for London mayor, he backed the plan which he said was the "shape of the future". Oh and the cost, about £600m!
