This.

I’ve been to a couple of low carbon vehicle sorry mobilityrolleyes conferences in London, they’re usually headed up by some clueless lightweight lefty from the top of TFL talking about their utopia where no nasty smelly cars are clogging the streets, it’s as quiet as the countryside but cleaner and the children can run around free without the fear of being run over by a big nasty truck

It all sounds lovely but unfortunately without teleportation it’s a bit difficult for all of the residents to enjoy their chai lattes in the morning with the trucks stuck outside the M25.

Presumably once they’ve dealt with the capitalist financial services industry it would end up like a monoculture of hipster IT consultants and public sector workers as everyone else for whom public transport isn’t practical gets booted out.

If only.
The trucks pass my door on the way to the fish farm
Motorhomes of all descriptions trundle along, get lost, trundle back

And the nearest bus stop is a mile away. Once an hour service into town, if I want to go the other way there's about thee a day.
