Kahn is all about £££££Agree with pushing back.
But even 750,000 signatures won’t make a blind bit of difference.
The last 2 yrs should show anyone that they will do exactly what they want. They simply don’t give a rats **** about the people. Never have, never will.
Does anyone have the link to ULEZ change Euro6 category form that was to do with TFL not believing E350 Bluetec was Euro6?
We all know how red London is but the next round of ULEZ will be interesting because as you say so many of those workers (voters) on the lower end of the pay scale live just inside the M25 meaning their going to be affected whereas the original ULEZ didn’t affect them that much.Guess it is all down to mass protests / people power to stop this, but that seems to rarely happen when it comes to motoring issues.
When Boris was mayor he tried to extend the congestion charge across Chelsea and further West and people protested bigtime and he was forced to stop.
However with the cost of living issue that won't go away soon, and the fact that when this ULEZ thing happens, many people that are not so well off will be forced to dispose of their cars for next to nothing, and many of them are dependant on their cars, it could cause a lot of discontent.
There are many people such as care workers at the lower end of the pay scale that depend on their cars to do their job, and this will be an additional blow to industries such as theirs which are already struggling due to staff shortage.
Unfortunately I don't think it's only about diesel cars and everyone should follow how the matter develops. Yes, it now mostly affects diesel cars that are not Euro6 but how long before those cars are replaced with newer model that are compliant? If this expansion goes ahead, I expect them to put cameras everywhere as it happended in 2020. Why investing so much more money to fight a small number of cars (they say on the radio that most vehicles are compliant?) that are going to be replaced in the next few years anyway? I expect when that happens (i.e. not much cash coming in) next on the list will be euro4 petrol and so on and on...If cash is what they need, they'll find a way to get it.We all know how red London is but the next round of ULEZ will be interesting because as you say so many of those workers (voters) on the lower end of the pay scale live just inside the M25 meaning their going to be affected whereas the original ULEZ didn’t affect them that much.
Exactly this. Imagine the conversation in Kahn’s office,You can buy your way out of it, pay £12.50/day, and they are happy for you to pollute. Nonsense!
