Drivers of diesel cars are to be given financial help by the Government, Theresa May has hinted, as cities across the UK prepare to introduce new taxes on the vehicles.
The Prime Minister said that drivers who were encouraged to buy diesel cars by previous governments, only to see the policy reversed, must now be “taken into account”.
Mrs May said she is “very conscious” of the fact that there was a push towards diesel under Labour more than a decade ago because of concerns over carbon emissions.
Her comments are the clearest indication yet that the Government is considering introducing a scrappage scheme to incentivise drivers to trade-in older diesel vehicles.
Government knows best, oh yes. We must take climate action oh yes. And we must do it not the way the economists say, with a carbon tax, but by micromanagement of the regulations, oh yes.
And of course it all fucks up in a most expensive manner. Oh yes.
But the state must be Curajus, Oh Yes.
Fascism would be more attractive with competent fascists really, wouldn’t it? Lee Kuan Yew has wielded the sort of power Ritchie insists should be used upon us. And he’s not done a bad job despite the not a lot of democracy. The outcome of Corbyn and McDonnell having that sort of power is going to be what?
