Re: Ban on new petrol and diesel cars in UK from 2030 under PM's green plan

This is just laughable. No way will the UK be ready for this in 2040, never mind 2030.

How are they going to provide charging points for every single car parked outside on the streets? Not to mention the hundreds of points that would be needed at motorway service areas and other places for people travelling long distance. And don't get me started on the amount of pollution making all the batteries for electric cars generates.

The whole electric car idea was flawed from the start. It needs a major rethink and standardised manufacturing of the vehicles at a minimum.

They will be banning new car sales, not fossil fuel cars. Now the day they ban fossil fuel cars will be an event to see. Maybe in our lifetime, maybe not.

The new car users will be hardest hit. Companies who own fleets will be forced to spend more money on maintaining them, as will individuals. We will need to take more care of the things we have and be a little bit less of a throw away and get a new one society.

And to be quite frank, if there is a demand then it'll find a market. Just as individuals in London sell parking places, they'll start to sell access to charging point too. A new market, a new opportunity.
