At least, that was what it sounded like to me, but later I learned that their names were Hugh, Ben, and Nicholas, and that Hugh was a year older than Ben and Nicky, who were twins, and that they usually got called all in one breath.
And what happens when people stop using the buses? They get (back) into their cars, simply adding to the congestion problem.’Not designed for motor traffic’ The city wasn’t designed for motor traffic, let alone at today’s levels.
