We shouldn't have been dragged into this, a separate island not connected to Europe, Jaguar/Rover fined? by a regime in Brussels that has overblown estimates on pollution that is being conveniently pushed onto vehicle manufacturers.

Germany being the biggest manufacturer of cars also is the biggest driver of the green agenda as the parliament is dominated by greens and is legislating its industry to extinction.

Seems to be part of Germany's political culture. Recent example is to go all-in on a supplier of natural gas. Whoops, guess that wasn't a great idea.

No, they always have their own interests & pockets in mind. Nothing new. Nothing had changed.

Nah, I really think they are stupid enough to believe humans are killing the planet and Government policy can save it.

I was talking to my PA the other day. She said she thinks her EV charger was hacked. Reading online. Cyber security is an issue. People can turn off charging midway and demand a ransom.

EV charging cables are an easy target for thieves and in UK if you charge on the street or even in your driveway overnight these cables are easy to take and sell off.
Of more concern is that charging one of these things in your garage may be like a grenade waiting to go off with the lithium ever at risk from igniting and even killing you if the garage is connected to your home.
It's well known by now that it's difficult to put out an EV car fire and it will burn for much longer whatever fire extinguishing liquids are applied.

Reading online from various news websites. The UK mainly burns gas and coal to generate electricity. There are not enough solar farms. Billions of gallons of gasoline (petrol) are sent from the UK to the US weekly on the cheap. Surplus fuel. Looks like Labour? Messed it up. Stating that CO2 was bad news. However, it was NoX from diesel. Now diesels pollute less than their counterparts. What a mess. Serious infrastructure is required. It just is not there. Neither is the battery technology but hopefully it advances enough in the future.

''Coal not dole'' as said by the former President of the National Union of Mineworkers Arthur Scargill still rings true to some.

Its pretty hard to come by run flats in 22 guise. Also you need something A rated because anything less will impact EV range. Many of them dont come with a spare anyway.

^ I think run flats are heavier than normal tubeless and have more road drag lessening range and that goes for gas cars also. Always best to purchase a space saver spare wheel if there is just a liquid repair kit and carry wheel change tools.
