The GWPF has produced a 64-page Fair Fuel document. See the Chairman’s Summary on pages 56-58 for a flavour of the many present and future problems with the unplanned rush to EVs, which the ‘rebels’ fear is likely to be a disaster both for themselves and the motoring public. But they’re mixing up carbon dioxide emissions cuts with pollution, which is an entirely separate issue. Such confusion plays into the hands of the so-called ‘green’ activists.

Tory rebels have vowed to fight the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars, reports The Sun (via The GWPF).
Thirteen MPs urged the Government to think again or face public fury.
The Fair Fuel all-party parliamentary group today calls on ministers to publish a full-cost analysis of what it will mean for the economy to go electric, and how they will slash emissions.
They also demand a new road user advisory group, an air quality watchdog, and for the Government to look into how fuel catalysts can cut pollution from existing cars.
Group chair Craig MacKinlay said: “Sooner or later the public will rebel against this madness.
“Better to have the rational debate now before we fully embark on a failing and expensive experiment.”
Howard Cox, of FairFuel UK, added: “All common sense has been thrown out and cluelessly replaced by a set of virtue-signalling policies.
“Motorists did not vote for the Green Party in 2019 but that is what we have got.”
