Question

Well, I will be a pain in your arse or a thorn in your side throughout this period promoting the congestion charge.

You mentioned measurement of public support and you mentioned MORI. Would you also put ORC International within that same category and the public opinion poll you've conducted over the Ealing tram? Would I be right in assuming that you only publish figures in a manner which is favourable to yourself; not necessarily honest to the outcome of that survey? Can I couple to that why it will not be before at least August this year that I get a copy of the questions that ORC International asked on this survey? We all know you can ask the question --

If you can pop up to my office afterwards, I will give you my copy. There is nothing exciting in it. What it shows is broadly a two to one majority in favour of the tram except for that specific area around Ealing Broadway, where you are concerned, where I think the majority is 1% in favour.
