"We will not be banning cars from city centres anymore than we will be having rectangular bananas."
The bizarre response from UK Transport Minister Norman Baker to a suggestion that it would be wise for cities to consider making it harder to use cars and make it easier to walk and cycle around them.
Mr Baker sounds like a rabid Mail-loving Tory but in fact he's a Libdem!
If you remember, during the Telegraph expenses feeding frenzy he was outed as a chap who thinks the public should pay for his bicycle to get him to work and a PC so he can listen to music and send emails to his friends. Poor chap. He must be really hard up.
