Stupidity will leave us on scrapheap
If September is the UK’s barometer of health for the new car market, then I suggest someone rings 999 for an ambulance.
It’s in a terrible state and badly in need of emergency aid – which, as things stand, will not be forthcoming from Westminster.
For the sixth month running, sales have nosedived, down 9.3% last month alone compared to the same period in 2016.
Whosawthatone coming? Well, I did, and of course anyone else not stupid enough to allow themselves to be dazzled by the electric dreams and promises of our cleanairheaded politicians.
I’m still staggered at the sheer stupidity of their sudden rush to ban petrol and diesel cars within the next 20 years without first checking the facts and costs to the motorist and, of course, the economy.
If that had been the case, then I would be breathing a bit easier and charged up with excitement for the future. But I’m not!
My batteries are flat and I’m choking with rage because I’m now stuck with a car that, in years to come, no-one will want.
