Oh, marvellous. The UK government is now making policies based on easily disprovable conspiracy theories.

They’re either idiots, or they think pandering to idiots is the only way they’ll stay in power.

@adders Wouldn't be surprised if they've been making policies in this way for years.

@SimonWoods This particular issue makes me want to scream. The 15 minute cities idea is such a good one, and the conspiracy nuts have just ruined it.

@adders Yep. I've been ranting for years about the need for everybody in this country to give a shit about local areas, and having grown up with robust public services including a substantial transport system I feel increasingly cynical towards everybody who bends over backwards for the cult of the car.

It seems people are so terrified of trusting other people even a little bit that they'll sacrifice so much obvious good for the sake of a machine, and not even a pleasant machine at that. Utter madness.

@adders sadly, it’s probably column A and column B knowing that useless lot.

@DaveyCraney Hard to disagree with you.
