CONSERVATIVE Chris Knight was pretty candid when we talked parking at the House of Lords on Tuesday. He told how he copped £260 in parking penalties recently when he parked on a junction and his car got towed.
But the man with the final say over Camden’s parking policies – he is the ‘executive member for environment’ – reacted differently than a lot of drivers who get hit by tickets and the tow truck in these parts. He quickly pointed out: “I deserved it!”
I asked him whether he will still be environment supremo after May’s elections where he faces a wrestle with the Lib Dems to keep his Hampstead Town ward seat. He didn’t look the slightest bit worried, shoving him me a smile like I had asked him the most ridiculous question in the world.
