But, but, Jeremy's gonna win! He said it on BBC today! Calling him a liar?

I didn't see any reference to Corbyn, only the lying prime minister.

Then we now need to be putting enormous pressure on Mrs M to get our trade and industry back. Let's see the city start earning real money for the Country.

Let me spell it out to you, I obviously need to. It won't be 'Mrs M' that we will need to put pressure on when Jeremy is in charge. Now will it! Unless of course he is lying when he said that. But Jeremy wouldn't lie, would he? It's not difficult is it, I know you're a bit challenged but still. Do TRY to keep up with the adults smile.gif

Diesel is cleaner now than ever before and is getting cleaner, it also generates less Co2 than petrol, the main benefit however is that government can use it as a cash cow and punish drivers for doing what the government actually told us to do. It's easier to tax motorists than to do something about all the other causes of air pollution all of which would cost more money to address.

Quite. However, we are the 'government'. It is our fault, not theirs, in my view. 'We must' buy cheap stuff and 'we must' fly and drive for pleasure. 'We want' tomatoes all year round, we must have cheap TVs in every room and a decent phone to use while we 'watch' the telly, we MUST eat meat, etc...

Sadly, after 40 odd years of 'one size fits all' education, we are now conditioned to accept and not question; thus slaves to propoganda. What's good for Tesco etc, is good for us!

Notwithstanding sustainability and a lack of your average Joe taking some responsibility for their part in all this. The western world is arrogant and selfish.

Totally! And that may well be our eventual downfall.

I see that new research has shown airborne particulates are also being pumped out in massive quantities by petrol engines as well. VW are now going to fit filters on all new petrol engines.
