You might have heard in the press earlier this week that the government have decided to scrap “smart” motorways!
Great news! …right?
Well sadly,not really :-(
Apparently it was a campaign promise of Rishi Sunak to scrap smart motorways altogether…
He’s a good bloke, you see, who’s able to see basic sense.
He also really cares about all the wrongful deaths which have been caused by the criminal profiteering of the government.
As ever with government types, all is not as its spun.
Have you ever known a politician to truly follow through with their campaign promises?
Me neither. And it seems that Sunak and co don’t plan to break with that tradition.
They’ve stated the reasons for “banning” smart motorways are twofold; money and safety.
On the money front, I think the only logical conclusion can be that the anticipated revenue doesn’t justify the cost to build new smart motorways.
In other words, Motorists have caught on and simply don’t trigger the cameras enough anymore to make the tax by stealth viable.
More sinisterly though, they appear to pretend to care about safety by scrapping 14 planned smart motorways, and “banning” the building of future ones.
However, they DON’T plan to get rid of the smart motorways that already exist!
It seems fairly obvious its because that would cost money, with no financial return on the investment.
Surely basic logic tells us that if its too dangerous to create new smart motorways, then the ones that already exist are *also* too dangerous, and should be immediately decommissioned?
But basic logic doesn’t seem to be these peoples field of expertise!
As I’ve been pointing out since “smart motorways” were first introduced in the UK, the people behind them really are criminals with blood on their hands.
It seems they are completely detached from reality, and this causes them to act with the interests of themselves, their friends, and financiers at heart.
