One thing about this government and most councils is that they hate public 'consultation'.
It's generally just a tick box exercise to agree with the decision that's already been taken.
And in Manchester this is being seen.
There's a vote about the proposed congestion charge about to be held so you would think there would be balanced debate and a chance for each side to promote its views.
You would be wrong. This is Britain under Zanu Labour.
So why am I not surprised that ITV has canned an advert for the charge from being broadcast.
