Electric car fuel duty

Posted: July 6, 2010 in British jobs for British workers, Broken Britain

IlieElectric cars must be taxed to pay for more power stations or they could drain the National Grid and even contribute to power cuts.
Analysts for Saturn Energy calculated that a fuel duty of up to 10p a mile would be required to pay for the extra demand which will be created if the Government’s targets on renewable energy are hit.

The Climate Change Committee says that 1.7 million electric cars should be on Britain’s roads by 2020 and urgent modernisation was required to boost capacity to provide for the needs of any surge in the number of electric cars. Let’s hope the next couple of decades are windy ones, shame the national grid can’t store all the power produced by the wind turbines when it is windy.

It estimated that such taxes would raise £1.7 billion a year, which, if kept exclusively for the purpose, could pay for 1 new nuclear plant, two gas-fired power stations or 10,000 new wind turbines each year, pity it will probably be used to increase civil servant pensions.

Here’s some lunacy from the lunatic asylum called Britain!

A council has blacked out 250 windows on a glass-panelled swimming pool to protect the modesty of Muslim women.
Darlaston Leisure Centre in the West Midlands’ town of Walsall, was hailed for its ‘ultra-modern’ design when it opened ten years ago. But now council staff have covered the windows with dark-tinted film following complaints from Muslim swimmers.

An estimated 1,700 civil servants whose jobs have been abolished are still on the public payroll because their ‘gold-plated’ redundancy deals make them too costly to sack. It is thought they are pocketing £50million a year despite having no job to do. Instead they are waiting in ‘talent pools’ to be redeployed. In the private sector these no longer wanted employees would be given all the crap jobs to make them leave or is that just the way we used to handle things.

Just in case you are a LibDim and can’t find any illegals

IlieOn the evening of Thursday 1 July UK Border Agency officers visited two different takeaways, China City on 258 Great North Road, and Happy House, 264 Great North Road in Doncaster and questioned staff to ensure they had the right to work in the UK.

    Electric cars………. By 2015 we have to comply with the EU directive on large combustion plants (ie power stations) and either sort out emmissions or close them down.
    As this looks right now there will be a big problem with generating enough electric to keep the lights on!…….and then we are getting all these electric cars…..Hmmmm!……….planning and brewery spring to mind!
