Property is theft, right on!

According to a BBC news reader on TV this morning, if the people of Manchester vote in favour of a congestion charge it will "free up" three billion pounds for investment in public transport.

Oh yes, all that money will be "freed up", as opposed to being held captive by all the people to whom it belongs.

And then it'll be invested, we know that, because there will be a measurable return, like interest on a bank balance. Not at all like vague assertions of generalised benefit. Nothing at all like that.
