So, on the delays:
I think that a large part of these problems are caused not by the withdrawal of TfL's central government grant, but by the reduction of the Crossrail budget in Osborne's first Spending Review in 2010. The budget was cut by about £1bn then, which was the shortfall identified by July this year. Obviously, the other TfL cuts are bad, too, but I strongly suspect the earlier budget cut was the primary reason.
