There is a quiet revolution afoot, but the Government is not rising to the challenge

Steve Richards thinks that there is a quiet revolution afoot, but the Government is not rising to the challenge

I detect an understated revolution from below, one that is only indirectly connected with decisions taken by elected leaders in this country or anywhere else. The revolution is in its early days. I predict confidently that it will lead to a dramatic decline in car usage and holidays in far-flung places.

Indeed I wonder whether we are seeing the beginning of the end of cars, at least in cities.

It may not be so quiet if the government fail to respond. Take the anonymnous comment posted on our blog today about protest rides in relation to Newtown Aycliffe.
