Congestion charge

My fellow cats

When the not so new government did run for election, they promised to decrease public transport fares and to raise the quality of public transport in Copenhagen. The economical means for that should be implementation of congestion charge.

After the election they have been very surprised that this upsets a lot of people and it seems that they have not been diligent enough in their preparations.

I once read in the old Chinese book of war, Sun Tzu:

Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

I think that the not so new government neither knows themselves nor knows their opponents in this political fight for the congestion charge. If they had prepared thoroughly, they would never have ended up in the misfortune they have put themselves in on this matter.

Are the human politicians becoming lazy? Have they forgotten how much it means to stick together and be prepared? Maybe the previous government made them believe that it’s all about spin. Even on that they are amateurs.

Luckily cats do only travel by feet, but we also have four of them.
