Moving Pollution Up North

I recently traded in my non-ULEZ compliant Jaguar XF for a petrol vehicle. I got a better trade-in price than I expected but it was not a total surprise because I figured that dealers would sell such vehicles in the North of England or Scotland. According to a report in the Telegraph (see link below), that is exactly what has been happening.

Sadiq Khan has just exported London’s air pollution to the rest of the country. Which I am sure they are grateful to receive – NOT. This is what happens when you have an idiot in charge in London who does not consider the unintended consequences of his actions.

  1. Scrapping a vehicle with life left in it, and replacing it with a Khan-approved one is plain stupid, because it’s worse for the environment. Maybe he hasn’t heard of recycling. And the biggest cut in emissions would be achieved by scrapping the biggest gas-guzzlers of them all – traffic lights, those weapons of mass distraction, danger and delay that represent a disastrous, dysfunctional traffic control system.

  2. Instead of the net zero madness of electric vehicles why are we not investing in making ice vehicles cleaner like we used to.we need both technologies not just one.
