The non-government seem to have caved to what the populous thinks it wants rather than what is really needed. Which obviously should more responsible and economic driving and less powerful cars.

More petrol, more pollution, more potentially deadly accidents.
It's not actually going to make any difference is it really? everyone does 85mph+ when it's safe to anyway.
Utter bollocks. If you're stuck out there for twice as long, you pollute for twice as long and as a former profession driver of 30 yrs exp I can assure you that a twat drives as much like a twat and causes just as much shit at 80 as he/she/it does at 20. If you can afford a car and you're a British citizen, history invariably contends that you'll pay whatever they ask for petrol.

They spend a vast amount of money widening the M1 because of congestion. While the work was going on, there was a 50 mph speed limit. The consequence? Very little congestion because the traffic was able to move more smoothly. They could have just reduced the speed limit and not bothered widening the road and saved a whole load of money.
The Tories are desperate for good headlines. Spending a quarter of a billion pounds on emptying the bins more often is just Cameron's version of the Cones Hotline. No ideas, no plans, no guts - just listen to a focus group of middle-aged, middle of the road people and do whatever they say.

I'll take that back If it turns out anyone has been prosecuted for doing 80mph on the motorway in the last 10 years.
Ps: My car gets it's best mpg at 80mph on the motorway, this depends on the car. cc, petrol, diesel etc.
