The BBC actually lay blame for something at the door of the last Labour government! New diesel and petrol vehicles to be banned from 2040 in UK per BBC News

In this BBC report the BBC actually lay some blame at the door of the last Labour government and don't hide that too far down the report either!

How on earth did this slip through?

'Ministers have been wary of being seen to "punish" drivers of diesel cars, who, they argue, bought the vehicles after being encouraged to by the last Labour government because they produced lower carbon emissions.'

'they argue' would be the BBC's get out but still they reported that claim without any Labour Party denial.

I'm waiting to see someone calculate what the load will be on the National Grid when all these electric cars are having their batteries charged overnight and whether the existing feeder cable to homes will be adequate.
I've just looked at the figures for the Mercedes all electric car, it require nine hours at 16 amps. Next door have three cars, should be interesting as the normal house feed is 45-60 amps. No using the electric cooker or putting the washing on overnight!
