I may be wrong, and several of you seem to disagree with me, but
wasn't it Jack that was going to be snatched?
No he was trying to borrow Gideon. He refused to let the brother come
and made it clear he only had one son really.
Apologies I can see everyone else has already piled in. I went to that
there London yesterday and it did me head in - the Mayor of London's
hatred of the car has gone beyond all reasonable standards and the
resultant jams and pollution must be doing serious damage to the health
of his population.
It's not just the Labour Mayor of London. Cornwall Council
(Conservative) share his viewpoint. A growing number of towns and our
one city are becoming, or have become pedestrian and cyclist friendly,
for which read car hostile. It seems to be a process which has been
going on for some time. Bodmin is virtually closed to the motorist.
Several tributary roads around Truro, labelled by the council "rat-
runs" have just been closed to non- resident motor vehicles, so that
pedestrians and cyclists can use them in safety. This has had the
unfortunate but entirely foreseeable effect of greatly increasing
congestion on the main roads. Not good for staff trying to get to work
at our only major hospital. I like a good rant, me.
