Aldgate Far-East?

Just to be fair, I must include this leading question from my Labour colleague, John Biggs. Remember, you heard the proposal here first...

John Biggs: Would you support renaming Aldgate East Station as Brick Lane?

Ken Livingstone: There are many difficulties associated with changing the name of an underground station. In particular, all maps across the underground network would need to be altered and other maps, for example for tourists, would be rendered out of date which could cause specific problems.

However, if there is widespread demand for this change, LU would look into the issue in more detail.

Could anyone who supports this proposal let me know please....
