re-hash of his appearance on Question Time earlier this week.
I think it came in response to 'why hasn't the government bought snow-ploughs to deal with this weather?' The answer, quite rightly, was something along the lines of it could not be justified given this weather happens once every 18 yrs. If we had regular weather of this ilk, like Russia, then yes they would have snow-ploughs.
He pointed out that each snow-plough would cost the tax payer c. £100,000 (plus need to be replaced every 10 yrs), so do the maths on how much total cost could actually be nationally.
I think he suggested that if ppl wanted to travel, they should think of snow chains.
Would ppl invest in them given the frequency of recent snowy weather? I don't think so, but they seem quite happy to be critical of the gvmt.
