You read it here first

The Daily Mail has finally caught up with the idea of "naked streets", alternatively known as the "shared space" concept. You could have read about it on this blog though, in January 2007, after Owen Paterson, then shadow transport secretary, had been to Holland to look at its practical application.

Leave it long enough and the MSM does catch up – on some things – although even some of the most simple concepts seem to elude it. But I suppose a five-year head start is about right.
