It\’s an important question: who gets to decide what is best and worst, what is good and bad, what should be valued and what should not be valued?
Nottingham has been named as England\’s least car-dependent city in a survey that exposes inconsistent planning across the country with one of the nation\’s newest conurbations, Milton Keynes, labelled the worst for cyclists and bus users.

So, let us try a test as to what the hoi polloi think of their valuations then.
Nottingham: Losing population.
Milton Keynes: Gaining population.
So, at least as a first order approximation, we seem to have found that the plebs, us, you know, the only people whose values actually matter, think that more cars good, more buses bad.
