Electric Car Crap

Twelve ‘Biking Boroughs’ in outer London are getting a measly £25,000 to waste on discussing how we can get everybody cycling. Meanwhile

The Government today allocated nearly £5.5 million for 2010/11 towards a three-year £29 million project led by Transport for London to get people in the capital to opt for electric cars.

Motorists will be able to apply for the grants of up to £5,000 from next year, from a national £230 million fund, to subsidise a quarter of the cost of an electric car, a hybrid with CO2 emissions of below 75g/km or a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
