It’s hard to believe but Oxford City Council is taking the benign idea of solving long commutes and with one hop, skip and a jump they’ve arrived at malignant tyranny. If you don’t like the idea of walking to work, and “saving the planet”, they will force you to catch that bus. But the unintended consequences are vast. You may have to move house, get a new job or get a divorce. You think you have the right to visit your children? Only with permission. Your whole lifestyle is up for grabs. What about people who live on the edge of a zone? Will the stupidity of artificial borders mean people quit gyms or shops five minutes away which are in the wrong zone and drive 20 minutes instead? Emissions may rise… It’s the social credit scheme that starts with your car.
