earn more than 15x the lowest paid - of course this would mean entirely re-jigging wage structures, and some would suffer wage reductions (not just at the top - but also in the middle) and some would get wage rises (minimum wage should be ÂŁ11ph); and of course that will never happen.

Yes. Energy consumption can be dramatically reduced by replacing the car with an efficient and effective public transport network. Work out which journeys are regular like the daily commute with streams of vehicles stuck in traffic jams and only one person in each vehicle. Fleets of minibuses are hooked up to GPS and mobile phones via a server. Book ride in advance. Bus sends text to passenger in the morning when 5 or ten minutes from pick up point which can be at end of street and at work in the evening. Utilisation of buses and planning of routes can be optimised on a daily basis. feanelwa 28 May 2012 12:17PM Any chance of a transcript or some subtitles so people with hearing impairments and/or having crisps with their lunch can share it too?
