US Embassy claims are unsustainable - Caroline in The Times

In a letter to The Times, Caroline Pidgeon has repeated her criticism of the US Embassy's refusal to pay the congestion charge.

Caroline says:

The decision by the new US Ambassador in London to adopt the same stance as his predecessor is a depressing development for everyone who hoped a new Administration in the White House would lead to some of the most abrasive aspects of the US relationship with the UK coming to an end ...

At present 70 per cent of diplomatic missions in London pay the congestion charge. The US Embassy should be ashamed that it tops the league of non-payers, and that its example is followed by countries such as Cuba, Iran and Libya.
