Step forward Green councillor Ben Duncan who has suggested that Brighton council “boycott” a city taxi firm (City Cabs).
City Cabs has had the "temerity" to publicly criticise (via two adverts) council proposals for a city wide 20mph speed limit, calling the limit a "declaration of war on motorists".
“Driving around Brighton and Hove is tough enough. We don’t want it to become any harder.”
On Twitter Duncan said:
“Wondering if we’ll have to start urging official BHCC boycott of City Cars (sic) after they declare war on council 20mph speed limits.”Some delegates at the Green Party Conference were quick to support the idea, with one tweeting: Duncan now says that said he “strongly disagreed” with a boycott implying that City Cabs were of "subnormal intelligence"!:
“I think a boycott at this point would be disproportionate – and it’s important that we know all the facts first.WTF is "enforced peace"?
I can see why a child or someone with subnormal intelligence might assume I was calling for a boycott now but they’d be wrong.
The problem is that this ad was based on untruths. It suggested that the 20mph limit was a war on motorists, when in fact it is about enforced peace.”
Is he suggesting the UN send troops to Brighton?
