Have you purchased your new, clean, green, politically correct, all electric car yet?
No? I thought not.
Neither have I. It is not so much that I hate the enviroment or that I do not want to support the fabulous clean, green, sustainable job creating indistries fabulous, clean, green Dave has promised us will lead Britain to a new utopia, nor is my reluctance a result of my severe allergy to paying £30,000 for a matchbox on wheels that if I’m lucky and have the wind behind me will take me and mrs T. all the way to the end of our drive (20 yards) without us needing to stop for a recharge
Those of us who intend to pass on the joys of electric motoring shouldnt feel guilty, electric cars simply don’t work. The technology is way off being ready to provide a serviceable vehicle. So long as that is the case drivers will not buy them in spite of authoritarian attempts to bully us. America’s Loopyloo state California may have passed a law that will set a clean, green, sustainable quota of 15% of all vehicles on its roads to be electric cars by 2025. Well passing laws is one thing, making people obey them is another.
Evidence of this can be found in Obama’s Brave New World, in the US car making state of Indiana. An electric car manufacturer set up with $100 million of Obama’s stimulus money (it’s called stimulus money because every time Bammy flushes another $1billion down the pan it gives him a hard on)and a battery maufacturing plant to suply power packs for the cars stands idle. 100 hundred cars were made and not one sold. The plant, lanched with promises that it would provide 400 jobs now stands idle and has just two employees, an accountant and a caretaker.
The owners are hoping to find a Chinese buyer.
It seems that drivers have been rather cool on the idea of eletric cars all over the developed world. Somehow I think other drivers, particularly those in sunny California will rebel against this latest green lunacy and will not be buyiong an electric car any time soon because they don’t fancy burning to death in a fiery roadside inferno.
This is what happened when one reckless electric car owner tried to accelerate his
milk float new, clean, green, sustainable pride and joy to more than twenty miles an hour.
