15-minute cities

:: politics, doomed

The government of Britain wishes to stop councils — councils elected by local people — implementing schemes where essential amenities are always within a 15-minute walk for their voters.

Since access to essential services is clearly unimportant to them, perhaps the government would like to relocate to somewhere other than central London. May I suggest the Moon? I hear Mare Moscoviense is very pleasant at this time of year.
