Sir, - Operation Freeflow has started, and it's nice to see the Government finally doing something about the traffic chaos that has been inflicted on the city of Dublin. However, it was launched only because the Taoiseach was himself stuck in a traffic jam. If this trend of politicians acting on a major social issue only when it affects them directly is to be continued, perhaps we shall soon see Michael Lowry as chairman of Fas? - Yours, etc,
