Lib Dem Hot Air
The cost of residents' parking permits could be linked to the emissions their car produces, under plans from one London borough council.
The Liberal Democrat council in Richmond, south-west London, hopes to make owners of gas-guzzling vehicles pay more to park outside their homes.
The owner of two high-emission cars could pay £750 a year for parking, compared with the £200 they pay now.
But it would cost nothing to park environmentally friendly cars
Am I being as dim as a Liberal Councillor or are the carbon emissions of a parked SUV not the same as those of a Prius or a knitted Tofu bicycle? Nothing, nil, zero?
