By chance I had half an hour to spare when returning to London from Oxford on Thursday. I left the coach at Marble Arch and wandered along Oxford Street. Much to my surprise, I found that there was no traffic along a whole section. This was actually because the Christmas lights had been turned on a little earlier (story here), although I don’t really give a damn about that. Far more notable was that Oxford Street was actually reasonably pleasant with no traffic (and buses!) along it. Ken Livingstone has talked of how it would be preferable to have a pedestrianised Oxford Street (story here) and debate of the role of the street has been going on for a while (more here). I wonder what could be done to help support these calls for pedestrianisation? Some sort of petition?

If you wanted to usher in an autocratic new regime, I can't think of any better pretext than what 'Yellowhammer' lays out. Chaos and shortages, riots and delays. https://t.co/J6R4ZhotcW
