Manchester Congestion: A Good Starter Package

The Manchester Evening News' David Ottewell lays out the city region's proposals for a congestion charge dividend. This seems like an excellent package. Some of which could be done without this money - e.g. further de-congesting of the city centre. Although comments will no doubt run virulently anti- The Manchester Evening News is absolutely right to report this package factually and in full today.

No doubt we can have vox pops and counter views from those mostly car-mad columnists of yours over the next week, next month and next year.

Have added a link to David Ottewell's politics blog. The picture is from the MEN - fair use, pimping their story.

But what if the MEN pic was taken by a freelance who only sold them first use.
You are stealing her/his work!Just because pic is in the MEN or on their site it doesn't mean they own the copyright.

My policy is that I will take down any picture on request. I have asserted fair use. If someone is bothered by that then I will take it down. I will also willingly credit the photographer.

I will have to bar you if you continue to be such a complete and utter tosser.

You've made this point before. Enough already.
