It’s been rather a slow week for Boris-related news (between people either praising his foresight or condemning his latest decisions as his first year in office draws to a close), but an interesting tidbit slipped onto the letters page of the Guardian. With reference to Gordon Brown’s decision to subsidise electric cars, Jenny Jones of the Green Party writes:
I’m not a big fan of Boris Johnson’s plan for electric cars in London, but at least it is a plan with passion. Brown’s plan is puny, with no thought for the bigger picture.
We’ve commented on Boris’s environmental policies here on the site before, and so we’d like to take this opporunity to open up the debate a little. Do you agree with Jenny Jones? Are Boris’s policies more useful than the PM’s when it comes to a green London? Does his recent decision to reduce the size of his environmental office change things at all, or is it truly just a way of streamlining the bureaucracy of City Hall? Let us know in the comments.
