Buffoon of The Year Award goes to Ed Miliband (again!):

Ed Miliband launched a passionate plea for an ‘electric car revolution across the country’ – before admitting he does not have one himself.

The shadow business secretary attacked the PM’s plan for a 2030 ban on polluting vehicles, saying it was ‘not taking the bold action necessary to make this fair’.

He said it needs to benefit consumers and manufacturers and ‘not just the richest’ as he appeared on Good Morning Britain.

But the former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change was left red faced when host Susanna Reid asked: ‘I presume you’ve got one.’

He admitted he has not and claimed it was a ‘work in progress’ as he tried to laugh of shouts of ‘practise what you preach’ from the journalist.

Given that electric cars typically cost £10000 more than proper cars, where does the idiot Miliband expect this money will come from to subsidise purchases? The only idea he has got is interest free loans, but last time I checked these still have to be repaid. In any case, interest free loans are common in the market place for new cars. And even if EVs were price competitive, drivers still would not buy them because they are not fit for purpose.

It has been clear for years that Miliband Minor has not got a clue what goes on in the real world,and how people live outside of his North London bubble.
