Ideas Above His Station
Clearly Ken Leninspart (Mayor of London) has got ideas above his station.
His recent decree that he will impose a "congestion charge" of £25 per "4*4", in order to limit noxious fumes and "save the environment", may all be very well and good were his role in life as London's Mayor to save the planet.
However, it is not.
The aim of the "congestion charge" is to reduce the amount of traffic in London. A "4*4" takes up the same room, more or less, as any other car.
This £25 charge goes beyond the concept of "congestion" control.
Mayor Ken, like all of Nanny's acolytes, has gotten beyond himself.
That of course does not matter to Nanny, £25 is a nice little earner!
