We don’ t really want politicians to listen to us

"Let me suggest a better way of dispelling voter cynicism. Declare that the Transport Secretary has not the slightest intention of letting a mass lobby — even one with internet access — bully him out of what’s in the public interest; that 2 per cent of the population is not a groundswell, still less an argument; that the signatories are ignorant of his plans; and that if the public really do think we can carry on offering free road space to a growing number of cars, the public are simply wrong." —Matthew Parris
