Nick Cleggs party has unveiled proposals to only allow ultra-low carbon vehicles on UK roads by 2040.
The controversial measures would mean millions of petrol and diesel cars being forbidden. Only electric vehicles and ultra-efficient hybrid cars would be allowed on UK roads under the Lib Dem plans. However, petrol and diesel vehicles would still be allowed for freight purposes.
The Lib Dems also want to introduce a system of road pricing in congested areas.
As part of the partys plans to create a zero-carbon Britain, the Lib Dems could also embrace nuclear power and shale gas exploration.

They said this nonsense six years ago
too. The fact that they get into government with these extreme views is a really bad sign.

All my vehicals are solar powered. They operate on natures battery, the hydrocarbon. Nature stored this solar energy eons ago. I exploit this energy and release helpfull carbon dioxide into the lower atmosphere to help spur more plant growth and to continue the cycle.

They don’t need to worry, because by 2040 the UK as we know it will have ceased to exist. The new little prince will have to live in exile, or face being killed by the muslim majority population. Stick a fork in Britain, it’s done!

IOW, Nick Cleggs party is taking a dive, and yet drawing off votes from the left, to be brought into the next coalition. Thanks Olog-hai.

(It's no coincidence that some "conservatives" echo the hard left.)
