Liberal U-turns for all
The Deputy PM beat a hasty retreat on support for 20mph speed limits after local Liberals let him know their lack of support.
A letter received from his office states that “given the evidence in favour of adopting 20mph limits in residential areas we are hopeful that the policy motion will be passed at autumn conference”. I presume by ‘we’ his office was referring to Clegg himself.
Indeed, controversial plans for a blanket 20mph speed limit on York’s streets “have been backed by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg” (The Press, September 4).
Typical Liberals, all things to all men but no actual politics. Or just U-turns for all!
