Fancy that! The latest supporter of the mindless and ineffective ‘Choose Day’ Christian eco-scam is none other than Mark Bradshaw, Labour’s Transport exec.
He tells The Cancer: “Choose Day will help to make Bristol a leading city in addressing th[e] environmental challenge.”
Yeah right Mark. Really cutting edge. Trying to guilt trip the working people of the city on to your shitty, ramshackle old bus service run by corporate profiteers First.
Rather than engaging in doomed PR stunts with Christians, wouldn’t Bradshaw’s time be better spent getting together with his new super-rich Merchant Venturer buddies – who’ve made an awful lot of money out of this city- and creating the rapid transit system this city – if it was properly run – should have had 30 years ago?
Even The Cancer ain’t falling for Bradshaw’s latest “I’ll-support-anything-me-if-it’ll-get-in the-paper”cheap shot. Here’s their editorial on the matter:
What is the point of Bristol City Council backing a campaign encouraging people to choose to leave their cars at home to get to work?
Is their intention to prove that the vast majority of people who drive to work each day don’t have any choice?
Or is it that they are so prejudiced against car users that they will grasp at any opportunity to make them feel uncomfortable?
The truth is that campaigns like Chooseday will work only if people have a viable alternative to driving their cars. That means an efficient and cheap public transport system.
This is something we simply do not have. The choice is, therefore, drive your car or take a day off.
It really should not be left to individuals to sort out the city’s traffic problems. For running the city is, after all, why councillors seek office.
Rather than trying to pass the buck they should be coming up with innovative ideas to try to help people get to work.
Well done Bradshaw. You’ve associated yourself and the city with an idea so dumb even The Cancer says so!
Update: Charlie Bolton says on his blog that he too was there today along with Lib Dem leader Comer and Tory North West candidate Charlotte Leslie. What a shower of pathetics. Do your jobs properly, stop hectoring us and get us a decent transport system together you lazy tossers. Moral lectures and photo ops with vicars aren’t going to do shit for the planet are they? Although they’re cheap, easy and give the impression you’re doing something when you’re patently not don’t they?
