Nobody will bat an eyelid until 2030, and then when they run their government scrappage scheme in 2035 everyone will be lapping it up, like they did a few years back.

There has to be some vast improvements over the next 20 years on electical infrastructure and cars to have any hope of hitting their target..


This is of course an EU initiative, which the government is having to conform to, out of threat of legal action. Therefore I don't suppose the likes of Gove and Grayling are trailing this out of some green conversion, but rather they think they can avoid it after Brexit.

Nobody will buy a car within 10 years at least if they fear it'll have to be scrapped


I think its only banning 'new' cars at that date no scrappage scheme is proposed!

Ultimately we will all be driving flying machines powered by hydrogen cells or something by that date anyway.

Pointless policy rolled out by a government devoid of ideas who want to give the media a scrap to feed on so they stop asking difficult questions about current (see what I did there) matters that actually matter!

I shouldn't get to vexed about this, most of you cunts will either be dead, in a home or on planet Janet. STFC will still be in Div 2 and the council and the then owners will still be squabbling over the heap that is SN1

 So when May is out of the country, Hammond tells us the reality penny (not euro) has dropped and there's zero chance of negotiating Brexit without a "transitional arrangement" which could last years... so a sort of hokey cokey Brexit. In...out...in ...out, shake it all about.

Further a respected think tank report on the effect of a hard or soft Brexit on the economic prospects of the UK's urban areas, predicts that Swindon would be the 4th most adversely affected.

A soft Brexit would be more benign, however would promote us to the 2nd most adversely affected urban area in the UK, behind Aberdeen.

I guess, this is manifest in the difficulty SBC gets in trying to attract inward invesment for the town centre.
