    Default MPs want to ban private cars

    Finally the truth is coming out. A committee of MPs has stated that private car ownership....even electric cars....is “not compatible with climate change measures” and has called on the government to outlaw private car ownership completely.

    Indeed. I have been repeatedly called mad for suggesting this is the ultimate agenda, and here we are.

    It’s unlikely anything that draconian will happen in my lifetime. The younger set who seem to hate cars can enjoy being told where they can go, when and how. If they don’t like it they only have themselves to blame.

    So MPs (you don't say who, or how influential they are) want to ban cars, but it won't happen in your lifetime.

    Haven't you always said that what happens after you're dead is of little concern to you?

    It's the Science and Technology Select Committee.

    They want private ownership banned and everyone using public transport or taxis.

    Yes because going to work and back every day in a taxi rather than your own car improves the environment, how exactly?

    These people are not only thick and stupid but also London-centric and think everyone in the country has the same access to public transport as people in London.

    They might be able to afford to travel everywhere in taxis - the rest of us live in the real world!
    As for public transport - it is a joke. I cannot remember the last time I travelled on train that was on time, clean and not smelling of greasy food, lavatories or both. The 'bus services here are appalling - never on time - and frequently missing one out for no apparent reason.

    Valuable stuff, Dordie, great for growing roses. You could broker a merger with Sphinxy and her pegs - and make yourselves a fortune!
