Nanny makes many promises on all manner of subjects to all and sundry, one of these promises was that she would cut the emissions of greenhouse gases by 20% by 2010.
As with most of the promises that Nanny makes, the reality is often very different from the wish.
As such, Nanny is looking for ways of trying to meet her target. Fortunately she knows of one way which will not only help her meet this target, but will also give her a nice little revenue boost as well.
She is planning to crack down on motorists who speed on motorways.
Nanny estimates that around 15 million motorists a year break the motorway speed limit; allegedly the faster a car travels over 70mph, the less efficient its engine.
It is reassuring to know that Nanny will be diverting scarce police resources from their unnecessary work on catching muggers, rapists and burglars to the more eco useful work of catching speeding motorists.
Nanny will of course profit rather handsomely from the increased revenue that the fines will bring in.
