"People told us...we have listened"

The title of this post is extracted from the blog of fellow Lib Dem Les Bonner, from North East Lincolnshire. He refers to his Council's decision to extend free bus travel for the elderly and disabled to pre-9.30am - something Darlington BC says it cannot afford.

Of course, "You spoke...we listened" is also one of John Williams's recent catchphrases: except that in Darlington it only applies to things he agrees with anyway.

As Les says,

"The scheme is of significant benefit to many deserving people and also supports the council’s CO2 emissions and climate change policy by getting more people to use public transport as an alternative to using cars."
