The Prime Minister continued his regional rail tour of Britain amid claims from the Tories that a string of U-turns meant that his authority was waning by the day. In the past seven days he has retreated on an Iraq war inquiry, ID cards, Parliamentary Standards Bill and the Royal Mail sell-off. When asked if individual programmes might be slashed to move funding to frontline services, Mr Brown told BBC News: If these programmes are cut then thats fine, but Ive got no interest in keeping inefficient services that are not useful to society or the economy growing. But he rejected Tory leader David Camerons claims that he was being deceitful and insisted he was being honest about the state of the public finances. He said: I have always told the truth. Yes, it is going to be tough but I believe the issue is that we want to protect these frontline services -- our hospitals, our schools, our policing -- and we dont want to have the 10 per cent cuts the Conservatives are talking about. Shadow foreign secretary William Hague said: This is a Government in chaos. Gordon Brown has lost the authority, unity and ability to govern.

Universities minister David Lammy was urged to reconsider rules which will see grants and loans frozen at 2009 levels, and tuition fees rise 2.04 per cent from 3,145 a year to 3,290. Sally Hunt, of the University and College Union, said: This is a kick in the teeth for the thousands of people who have already applied to university. COMMUTERS face cattle truck overcrowding for years after the Government renationalised a flagship train service. Transport industry chiefs are braced for a financial crisis and cuts to big projects including the purchase of about 4,000 new carriages to boost capacity on commuter routes, particularly those serving London. There are also fears of delays to Crossrail after a leaked memo warned of a 29bn shortfall for the transport system over the next 10 years. Last week, Transport Secretary Lord Adonis gave a guarantee that the 16bn cross-London scheme would not be delayed. But experts say transport will be hard hit as the Government seeks to get public finances in order and after the East Coast main line is renationalised. National Express is set to walk away from the franchise after bidding 1.4bn over 10 years for it. The Government is expected to collect about half this amount when it re-tenders the franchise and could also face a 500m-a-year bill for other rail firms losses.Pledge: Lord Adonis Ive got boobs, how was I supposed to hide them? -- Britains next top Model host LiSA Snowdon, right, was told to lose weight as she looked too healthy for the catwalk The greatest gift of my life was to be your mother -- a poignant last Message froM actress FArrAH FAwceTT to drug addict son redMond, who was freed froM jail in handcuffs to attend her funeral Daddy, I couldnt swim, but I held on to something -- BAHiA BAkAri, 14, tells her father how she survived the air yeMenia jet crash in the indian ocean By clinging to wreckage diSTriBUTion HeLPLine: If you have any comments about the distribution of London Lite, ring 020 7651 5276, or email distribution@thelondonlite.co.uk On the Tube JOURNEY PLANNER For the easiest way to get around London visit tfl.gov. uk and click on Journey Planner London travel information call 020 7222 1234 24-hours Textphone 020 7918 3015 Travel alerts receive free real-time travel info on your mobile or email, subscribe at tfl.gov. uk/travelalerts for more information on oyster, visit oystercard.com LU customer services for inquiries, call 0845 330 9880 between 8am and 8pm daily congestion charging for payment details call 0845 900 1234 or visit cclondon. com London Travelwatch call 020 7505 9000 or visit londontravel watch.org.uk Roadwatch Baker Street, regents Park: lane restrictions currently in place at the junction of Melcombe street.
