Liberal Democrats Plan To Ban All Petrol & Diesel Vehicles 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.
