    All is forgiven

    He is banning petrol and diesel cars !!!

    I love the man, I want to marry him!

    From 2040. And he is banning sales of said cars so they will still be on the roads for many years after. And the idea that any government making a rule for a time so far down the road has any intention of sticking to it is a bit naive

    no they won't not when petrol stations start becoming scarcer, and taxes for polluting go up and up

    He has upset the farmers though - told them they will not be able to rely on subsidies after Brexit

    off course it will happen, it has to happen, petrol will kill the planet, and the uk are a long way behind other places, scandanavia, europe, India, etc.

    It will involve a huge change in culture, but the car culture we have is totally unsustainable, and has been doomed for decades, this announcement is long over due.

    Hate to break it but I think the damage will all have been done by 2040. Far more needs doing now. Tories can't be chuffed to.

    Can I just apply to work for his department then!

    just to make sure things are getting underway, and there is no prevaricating.

    Might be able to chivvy him along a bit!
