Default Sadiq's looming poll tax moment

It will be interesting to see if the Tories have the savvy to
recognise the political potential in this. So far, they've been
as out of touch with normal people as the other parties.


yep, that is what will save Sadiq

the Tories wont have the nerve to go to the polls with a policy of reversing
the "tax"

It's not like they even have to campaign to abolish it.

you just have to make it only apply to cars that are more 8-9 years old
(whatever Euro standard that is)
and wait a few years before applying it to the next standard

Making it apply immediately to cars that are only 2 years old is just
"unfair"

That'll be Euro-5 (2009-2011 phased introduction).

It's undue haste, certainly.

several dishonest, hypocritical politicians. As I've posted before,
if this Mayor or any of his predecessors had genuinely been
concerned about air pollution in London, they would have
stopped making our roads unfit for road vehicles.

In my neighbourhood, Whipps Cross Roundabout, which has
always done a splendid job of processing three large, constant
streams of traffic, is now being replaced by a complex system with . . . .
yes, oh so predictably . . . . numerous traffic lights. The increase in
traffic queues and air pollution will be horrendous.
The day of reckoning arrives tomorrow:

Anyone who believes this self-congratulatory drivel is an idiot. I suspected
TfL were involved when I saw that a forest of traffic lights was part of the
new system.
