Left wing pressure group says private road system causes chaos, and advocates central planning.


Socialist activist group Government Does It Better has called on the government to take the country’s entire road network into public ownership.  ‘The current system, whereby local private citizens lease out patches of their land which are then joined up by residents groups into a patchwork of different road networks, is madness,’ they said in a press release issued today.  ‘If the Government were to take over the network, it could be maintained and operated as a single network, and planned properly.’  When asked how such a project would be funded, a Gee-dib spokesman said defiantly, ‘From general taxation.’


Douglas Trevelyan, Government spokesman on Transport, Education, Health and Business, responded:  ‘This is madness.  The idea that the general public want the state interfering in something as user-driven as the road network is just lunacy.  If people want roads, they can build them on their own land, with their own money.  It’s a system that works!’
