I KEEP HAVING THE SAME NIGHTMARE… I CAN’T recharge my all-electric Porsche 911 due to the rationing – the new series of power stations haven’t come online yet as planning appeals prevented them being started in 2025. Instead I can only charge my car every other night.
Petrol is no longer available due to the fall in demand, so the only option is to use my old estate as this takes diesel – at £25 per litre because it is shared with tractors and trains. I will also have to cycle the last three miles to work due to the emissions exclusion zone around Cheltenham.
On the plus side, my new garden sculpture arrives at the weekend – a Ferrari 250 GTO, a bargain at £50k because the classic car market has hit rock bottom. Who wants cars that can’t be driven or raced any more? If I can be bothered I could also watch the latest round of Formula 1 – sorry, I mean Formula E. I keep forgetting F1 stopped last year as it is illegal to buy new hybrid engines and the classleading Honda motors have dried up on the second-hand market.
Hang on a minute… This isn’t a nightmare. It’s 2045! Simon Hurlbatt
