I noticed today that access to Oxford centre will be restricted to electric vehicles by 2020. Great idea, close to my heart.
In 1961 my first rooms in college were the top-left windows in the pink building next to the tree above. Their advantages included location, location and location, if you could ignore the 24-7 traffic below, puthering smog year-long. But as an 18-year-old I rarely noticed the cold comfort they offered – in fact I can’t remember ever feeding the meter with a shilling for the gas fire – or the pollution below.
O tempora O mores!
