Don't liberal environmental types want to limit traffic in the congestion zones?


Well ten quid a pop does that very well. I was driving through London a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night and it was as busy as hell. The congestion doesn't operate at weekends.

Isn't the former SOS on board with environmental concerns?

Hope the Mail got its money's worth out of this non-story. Hillary wasn't driving, didn't park the car herself, and didn't argue with the traffic guys but she gets the bad publicity anyhow.

I guess Hillary's £40 fine is more newsworthy than "...the £7.5million owed by US diplomats in London, who have picked up 66,372 penalty notices for failing to pay the congestion charge over ten years."

I very much doubt that this story was even shown in the US media, I also doubt that she was driving either. I don't know how British diplomats behave in Washington or New York but I say probably a lot better than that.
