    Big shock cars to be all electric from 2030

    New petrol and diesel cars wonít be sold in the UK from 2030.
    The ban, originally set for 2040, was brought forward to 2035 earlier this year. Now itís been brought forward another 5 years.

    Given we canít produce enough electricity for current use without nuclear power stations due to close and gas boilers being banned thus sounds like lunacy.

    I reckon petrol and diesel will be very old technology by then anyway.

    It is lunacy, I keep saying we live in a lunatic asylum, what more evidence do we need.

    You obviously have not twigged the Tories cunning plan sinkov.

    They intend on killing two birds with one stone.

    They will encircle this island nation of ours with wind turbines, ensuring we have loads of free electricity and also keep those pesky immigrants out...

    Boris don't seem to have twigged the flaw in his cunning plan BT, this nonsense will lose them the next election. The Speccy is virtually the Tories house magazine, Boris used to edit it, but this morning the current editor, Fraser Nelson, has ripped Boris to shreds in the editorial. If he can't keep the Speccy and Nelson onside he's finished, like I said a few days ago, dead man walking. Once Brexit is out of the way, the Tory knives will be out, for the moment they're just sharpening them.

    Come on gentlemen it has to happen , we have a government leaking money like the titanic did ( not their fault mind).

    However they have Covid and brexit to deal with - transport use down massively, fuel taxes down massively losing revenue at both ends of the scale now.

    The electric revolution has taken off on such a scale ( they werenít expecting) that they simply canít make any money from the motorist , contributions for electric cars purchases , as above even less fuel revenue due to more people going electric ( hence pence per mile charges being discussed at the moment .

    We already know as Iíve said before there is only one pot of money - and itís got a lot smaller late.

    Someones got to pay - and you guessed itís us.

    You're probably right OC, the ramifications will be ongoing for god knows how long. But the actual deed will have been done by the end of the year, and although we'll no doubt end up still tied to some of the EU's apron strings, we will be an independent country, of sorts. At which point the Tory party will have no further use for Boris.

    In terms of electric cars; have you thought about where the resources are coming from? There is not enough rare earth metals such as copper, lithium, Cadmium Nickel etc to be able to do this. This is why they want you working at home or very close to work place because you wont have your own transport. Only the essential worker and elites will have, that unless we can get the hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to come good in the next 10 years; which is unlikely. Its all part of agenda 2030 and great reset stuff.

    Seeing that ever since this Lockdown malarkey started I have almost shrunk my liver, I don't think it will bother me much, either way.
