Already hearing of some tradesmen who have put up YouTube vids saying they're not coming back to Wales for any more work as it was painfully slow going across country through 20 MPH.

I heard a Welsh MP (or some form of politician) on the radio this morning. Whilst not exactly backtracking on the 20MPH law, he was at pains to point out that the local authorities are quite at liberty to keep (revert ?) the limits to 30MPH if they wish.
Sadly no longer a C5 owner :(

Yes I heard the same, but they won't do it because they'll be chaos!

Like other things in the news, they've allegedly lied about the figures - I heard one source, possibly NHS data saying it made no difference to road safety accidents in areas where they had this already in other parts.
