"And remember Mrs. Thatcher's adviser who suggested all roads should be privatised and the owners allowed to put tolls on them, so you would have to pay a series of tolls to get to town in the morning? He'd obviously read about the 18th century and failed to notice what happened in the 19th."

Well, yes, but Alan Walters was also the intellectual origin of the London Congestion Charge as well. Tolls and fees are not an entirely barking idea....
