Wolmar makes my heart proud! says Gecko

This just in from Gordon Gecko...

According to Wolmar's blog the arch capitalist will only give talks if he can sell his books to an adoring public afterwards.

When the bleeding heart lefties of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation thought this was a bit, er, commercial, for a learned society they pulled the plug on booksales, talk and all.

A furious Wolmar has given the CIHT both barrels on-line, suggesting "highway engineers frequently create street environments that are cluttered, ugly and not fit for purpose".

That's real capitalism for you - red in tooth and claw!
