Hardworking Londoner, Caroline Pidgeon, says that soon every Londoner will be owed £10 by embassies that dodge the Congestion Charge.
How sad this is. Why have we a Mayor of London who is not fighting for Londoners.
The amount of unpaid Congestion Charge and penalty charge notices owed by embassies and diplomatic missions that evade paying the Congestion Charge now stands at £68 million according to new figures obtained from the Mayor by Caroline Pidgeon AM, leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group.
Too many embassies are insulting their host city by evading a charge which everyone else - including even the Queen - has to pay if they wish to drive in central London. The Congestion Charge brings benefits from reduced congestion and it also funds transport projects.
Under Boris the level of unpaid Congestion Charge has soared and soon each and every Londoner will be owed £10 by these embassies and diplomatic missions that dodge paying the charge.
It is time the Mayor of London showed some real leadership on this issue, instead of his frequent excuses.
Boris, pull a finger out get back this money that the embassies should have paid us.
