Free tube on New Year’s eve sponsored by a company is becoming a bit of a tradition in London and it seems that London Mayor Boris Johnson has selected Wonga as the sponsor this year.
However, they’re getting flak from all sides including Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy.
Wonga’s supporters claim that their target customers are people who, perhaps, need money for a failed MOT but the New Year’s Eve tube sponsorship reveals precisely the target audience for Wonga: Young people out partying who have had too much to drink.
What on Earth was Boris thinking?!
