Diesel cars are 'killing people', says former Labour minister per BBC News

This BBC report is a masterpiece of BBC think. I can picture a modern day Winston Smith consulting a guide to see what he can say and what he can't.

'Tony Blair's Labour government made a mistake in promoting diesel cars as they are now "killing people", former science minister Lord Drayson has said.'

Nice differentiation of Tony Blair's Labour government from a real Labour government.

'In 2001, the then Chancellor Gordon Brown introduced lower vehicle tax for diesel cars, on the grounds that they were less polluting.'

That these grounds were fallacious and many said so at the time is not relevant.

'That tax break remains in place today.'

Nicely casting equal blame on the Conservatives.
