CONGESTION CHARGES IN LONDON….Starting Monday

CONGESTION CHARGES IN LONDON….Starting Monday morning, you’ll have to ?5 if you want to drive into London. Mayor Ken Livingstone predicts a “very bad two or three days.”

Oh yeah. Aside from the peculiar spectacle of a former communist known as “Red Ken” introducing a measure that would be applauded by Milton Friedman, I gather that the technology for the whole thing is just a bit dodgy. The kind of thing that happens when marketing guys decided to ship some software before the engineering guys say it’s ready.

I can’t wait to hear how it goes.
