    This is even funnier than one of Michael Gove’s announcements on the subject

    Letter I have just sent to the Daily Telegraph:

    Do I have this right? The Government would like me to scrap my 15 year old diesel car (that is worth so little that I have no concerns about depreciation; I can fill its tank almost anywhere in 5 minutes, drive 500 miles getting well over 40 miles per gallon, refill it and drive another 500 miles), and replace it with an electric car (based on rapidly-evolving technology that will be obsolete in under a year), costing many thousands of pounds, which we allow me to drive a maximum of 200 miles before requiring half a day to recharge, assuming I can find a charging point. And this in a country responsible for less then 1.5% of the world’s carbon dioxide production. A triumph of expensive and pointless virtue-signalling over common sense.

      Yup, you have that right. Often one feels like a spectator at a football match where the fans see the ref making one rubbish decision after another, and start singing “You don’t know what you’re doing”, “You don’t know what you’re doing”,

      Good luck with getting that published, although it should be in large type.

    Old but funny

    There are probably lots of people (including Government Ministers) who will think this is real.

    10000 more windmills to power electric cars.

    I wonder what the road rescue services (AA, RAC etc.) Have to say about these EVs. How will they cope with all these littering the hard shoulder and busy junctions with flat batteries.?
    Also what happens when they get stuck in a snowdrift in a hard winter? I suspect there will be a few deaths involved here. You can’t cosy up to a flat battery.

    The really sad thing about this is that your Tesla really does consist of large numbers of small batteries connected together.

    The video seems to have been blocked by NBC on copyright grounds. Does anybody have a different source?
