Newslinks | Congestion Charge Divisions

LondonUnlocked, The NewsEditor

In the space of two days two very different opinions of the Congestion Charge have been published - one pro in the Independent, and the other by Cllr Phil Taylor on ConservativeHome. Both are certainly worth reading.

The differences in opinion, and in the method of reading the published statistics about the Charge only serve to highlight what a controversial scheme the CC continues to be.

This is a debate which we are sure will continue throughout the election as each candidate lays out his or her options for the continuation of the scheme.

As the Guardian states in a thoughtful article today, the choice for Londoners is vast, and the Mayor's generous settlements from central Government give the victor a chance to employ real change when elected.
