Outspoken rocker Paul Weller has found a new target for his wrath - English public transport.

The former The Jam frontman has blasted London officials for retiring the iconic Routemaster model buses late last year (05) in favour of substandard alternatives.

But despite his social gripes, Weller confesses he has no desire to write politically charged songs.

He says, "They're always banging on in this country about our heritage and they take away the double-deckers and replace them with buses that can't make it round corners.

"But there are more important things in my life now to write about than politics."
