"Motorists have ruined England - and they need to pay the price"

It gets better: "We know that price controls, in general do not work well and capitalism, by and large, delivers the goods. [...] So what I want to know is this: why, the moment we get into our cars, do we all turn into screaming, pinko commies?"

This is clearly not from the usual suspects in green transport matters, but from the Daily Telegraph, a right-of-centre quality daily in the Washington Post vein. The discussion and issues are clearly more than a little London centric, but it's the strongest argument for road pricing I've read in a long time. That, and author Alex Proud's characterisation of Jeremy Clarkson: the nation's pet oaf.
