ghostgeek: London Mayor Sadiq Khan is seeking new powers to ban wood burning in the most polluted areas of the capital.

The mayor has written to the Environment Secretary Michael Gove asking for greater powers to tackle air pollution not caused by traffic.

Mr Khan wants to introduce a network of "zero-emission zones" where the burning of wood or coal is completely prohibited.

He also wants tougher controls on the sale of wood-burning stoves.

ghostgeek: Now this might be a silly question, but who is your local council accountable to? Is it to the local voters, the ones who pay the bills. Or is there some higher authority, shadowy or otherwise, that dictates policy?

briansmythe: No its not a silly question , every time there is a meeting of some local council to change dates or , spend hundred of millions on some cloud statues , or rip up city steets for bike paths , that no one uses , there"s always a big hoo har in the paper or what ever , just collect the rubbish and fix the roads like your supposed too , They keep talking about amemating local councils ,
Cos they seem too breed like rabbits, Coumcils everywhere , and Councelers making more and more money like Ceo"S , I not shore some think there is an agenda , through local councils , they doall seem to come up with the same Idears ,

ghostgeek: I know a great way to combat obesity. WALK, don't drive. Somehow, though, I don't think consumers are going to be interested in such a simple solution to their ever expanding waistlines.
