The Moment The Leader Of The Greens Agreed With A Motoring Lobbyist
21 November 2017, 10:25
This is the moment an unlikely accord was formed between the co-leader of the Greens, a motoring lobbyist and Nick Ferrari - all united in their opposition to HS2.
Jonathan Bartley, the co-leader of the Greens, has reached a surprising agreement with a motoring lobbyist.
Bartley was discussing tomorrow's budget's expected increase in diesel duty with Howard Cox, co-founder of Fair Fuel UK.
The two clashed on fuel tax but were united in their opposition to the £60 billion HS2.
"We're putting the wrong money in the wrong places," Bartley said.
"Jonathan we've finally got there. All the years we've known each other, you and I have reached an accord which is the lunacy of HS2," Nick replied.
"Let's celebrate this moment at 11 minutes past 8 on the 21st November."
It wasn't long before Howard was chiming along with the two of them: "I nearly fell off my chair as well, I couldn't believe I would ever agree with Green on this one. Jonathan well done my friend, I totally agree, and so do our supporters."
Nick passed on his congratulations, "This is a real moment here, made in heaven. Howard Cox from Fair Fuel UK, Jonathan Bartley from the Greens, you are in accord you guys."
