Isn’t it about time we made more room for people who can afford these?
Bristol City Council in conjunction with the other three local authorities have produced yet another glossy document about how terrible congestion is in the area and what they’re going to do about it. If they were half as good at providing a decent public transport system as they are at producing glossy brochures, none of us would ever need a car again.
What interested me was the opinion of Business West and their mayor-in-waiting, the Merchant Venturer John Savage. On page six of the document, Business West have come out strongly against Workplace Parking Charges, yet they support road user charging and will be lobbying for “clear business involvement in the development of the schemes and in current studies on road user charging.”
So basically what this bunch of tossers are saying is that the rest of us, including the self-employed, disabled, pensioners etc, are going to be forced onto First’s appallingly shit, overpriced and unreliable old rust heaps leaving the roads clear for them to swan around in their BMWs and Jags.
Oh, and don’t charge us to park at the office because that just isn’t on, old chap. And we’d like to make vast profits from all of this public money as well, if that’s ok with you?
John Savage and his Business West cronies really are a dreadful collection of elitist cunts, if you ask me.
