Liberal Democrats Plan To Ban All Petrol & Diesel Vehicles By 2040

If Britain's Liberal Democratas have their way then cars like this Jaguar F Type will be banned from the roads by 2040.

If Britain’s Liberal Democrats have their way,  then cars like this Jaguar F Type will be banned from the Britain’s roads by 2040.

Liberal stupidity knows no bounds, not because all Liberals are stupid by any means, but mainly because the Liberal mindset is incapable of thinking anything through beyond the initial knee jerk and feel good factor, “that reduces carbon, therefore it must be a good idea“. More often than not, the ill considered cure turns out to be far worse for all concerned, that the alleged problem it was supposed to fix.

The latest ill thought through Liberal idea concerns petrol and diesel cars which for personal transport use the Liberal Democrats want banned from Britain’s roads no later than 2040, despite the fact that there is little sign that viable and affordable electric cars and vans will be available by then.

At the beginning of the 20th Century there was a very real problem with horse emissions in London, there were so many horses and the were numbers increasing steadily so that by 1920 the alarmists were predicting that London would be knee-deep in horse turds, then the internal combustion engine became viable and horse numbers dropped rapidly and the problem cured itself, notably without any interference from politicians with a Green Liberal and Socialist agenda.

Nick Clegg’s party has unveiled proposals to only allow ultra-low carbon vehicles on UK roads by 2040.

The controversial measures would mean millions of petrol and diesel cars being forbidden.

Only electric vehicles and ultra-efficient hybrid cars would be allowed on UK roads under the Lib Dem plans.

However, petrol and diesel vehicles would still be allowed for freight purposes.

The plans will be voted on by members at the upcoming Lib Dem conference in Glasgow and could become party policy if approved.

Millions of petrol and diesel cars being forbidden, music to the ear of any Green Liberal eco-facist, the F word, forbidden.

By 2040, only ultra-low carbon vehicles will be permitted on UK roads for non-freight purposes,” the policy document states.

This is typical of the knee jerk Liberal mindset, electric cars cause far more pollution than conventional cars, the carbon footprint, if you believe in such nonsense, of a vehicle is manufacture, use and destruction, not just use. Any Electric Vehicle is only zero carbon in use if the generation source for the electricity is also zero carbon, an inconvenient truth always ignored by the Greens.

Hopefully Britain’s voters will fix the problem of Liberal Democrat emissions in 2015 for all time, when the voters of Britain remember the duplicitous lies of Little Nicky Clegg and how he traded a manifesto promise on student loans for personal power for him and his political party.

  1. How about magic carpets….no electricity necessary. No emissions. No need for parking. Nothing should be allowed…except magic carpets.

  2. And when there is no petrol duty and VAT coming into the govt’s coffers, what will they tax next?

    Who needs a Green Party with dem fellas in charge, methinks?

  4. Look on the bright side — this could be just what Britain’s oxcart industry needs to get it back on its feet!

  5. A Greens senator came and spoke to us, and he was against solar panels and electric cars.
    Cars running on electricity need electricity and doesn’t solve the problem of carbon emissions. (According to him). James Hansen said green energy didn’t work and nuclear
    power stations were Australia’s future. Yes he said this at talks in Australia. Seems our big coast line would solve the cooling waters required for generators, 200,000,000 litres at day.
    But magic carpets seems a solution, so long as the driver is licensed.

    XX Liberal stupidity knows no bounds, not because all Liberals are stupid by any means, but mainly because the Liberal mindset is incapable of thinking anything through beyond the initial knee jerk and feel good factor, XX

    Sorry, but does one not prove the other, ie, all liberals ARE all stupid because; “the Liberal mindset is incapable of thinking anything through beyond the initial knee jerk and feel good factor,””

    Proves the point?

  7. Is there any sensible person left in the world who gives a damn about carbon DIOXIDE emissions? If a politician mentions climate change don’t vote for him. UKIP all the way.

  8. Hey, Aardvarkester, isn’t this the party allied with the Tories. So I assume the Tories are behind this suggestion, since they are the majority in the coalition!
