Hypocritical Statement of the Week

From the 2006 Throne Speech (Friday 06 Nov. 2006):

"Although an unpopular subject, the Government will limit the increase of cars on our beautiful island and investigate alternative means of transport: increased buses and mini-buses, expanded public transport routes, car pooling schemes, car usage schemes, water taxis and infrastructure improvements that are more walker-friendly."

From UBP MP John Barritt's View From the Hill (Friday 06 Nov. 2006):

"If you look closely you will see that the Speaker now has his own GP car with his gas bill apparently paid for by the Government."
