image for Government U Turn on listening to the Public
£100 per mile by 2015

In August of 2011 David Cameron said that the government would listen to the almost 2m people who signed a petition against road pricing. Just over a year later the government announce plans to introduce rode pricing by 2015.

"Look we had to pretend to listen." David Cameron said "But we know what is right for the people. Look I've been waiting to re introduce this for over a year. Once we got the press distracted by Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter we pulled the plans out. Hurricane Sandy was just right to really bury the story."

Nick Clegg told the BBC. "I'm sure Mr Cameron knows what he is doing. He gave me a shiny car for doing what I am told. He told me that I won't have to pay so that is good. Plus if it stops poor people getting to the supermarket when I have to buy Mr Cameron's groceries then so much the better."

Iain Duncan Smith said "Coupled with the cuts in tax credit and cutting child benefit plus removing housing benefit we will reach our target of making more people live in poverty."

Expected next week a U Turn on badger culling, deforestation, and the west coast main line.
