When Ken Livingstone, mayor of London, introduced a congestion charge for the City of London and then, a couple of years ago, decided to increase the footprint of the city area subject to such congestion charge, I was thrilled.
Getting around London by car is still quite a hassle -- imagine how bad it would be if it weren't for the congestion charge.
Gosh, yes! Imagine how awful it would be if Werner Patels were not able to drive his car around the streets of London, eh?
One assumes that he is one of those who can afford to pay the charge rather than have to use the already crowded public transport system.
Well, lucky old Werner.
UPDATE: Werner replies.
Wrong -- I use public transit. Always have, always will.
Fair enough, my bad.
