London Mayor Ken Livingstone Profiled

London's mayor takes on the traffic challenge by expanding his congestion pricing experiment into West London -- an area with posh shopping areas and celebrity townhouses.

"He's an environmentalist, a leftist, a lover of newts. He is also the mayor of London, a man who once called U.S. President George W. Bush corrupt, who would prefer that his constituents didn't flush their toilets so much, and who introduced a controversial road congestion charge.

...Livingstone isn't bothered by the criticism of his policies or his tactics, saying he is determined to reduce traffic and environmental damage."
