Route Meister

Quick question: if Ken Livinstone was so convinced that his DOUBLING of the foul, £8 a day congestion charge area was going to reduce the amount of traffic on Kensington's roads, why did he choose to launch the extention on the first day of the traditionally-traffic-free-anyway school half term?

And given that socially oblivious school-run mothers (or let's be more accurate, au pairs) in their 'chelsea tractors' are a large part of the problem in west London, what difference will the charge make when most of the mothers in question will be exempt from payment?

This was another one of your post-liquid-lunch, back of a napkin ideas, wasn't it, Kenneth?
