Putting the Brakes on

Never let it be said that Tom Brake is not in full control of the lumbering vehicle that is Liberal Democrat transport policy. Responding to the national roll-out of the Highways Agency Traffic Officers, he commented that the:
'The long term solution to congestion problems on our road network is a reliable and affordable public transport system combined with congestion busting road user pricing. The traffic police are nothing more than a sticking plaster.'
Errr - Tom, they aren't police officers.

More importantly, I'm still waiting for a list of sites where the Liberal Democrats believe that congestion charging would be effective. (Clue - nowhere they have any hope of winning any seats.) We'd like a reliable public transport system in Birmingham, but your Tory friends have managed to block that idea for the past year or so.
