He recently spoke out about the Government’s stance on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars.

“However unpalatable it may be.

“Because I’m a cynic, I think government just wants personal transportation of any type gone.

“Let us squabble over electric/hydrogen/kale/whatever.

“In reality, get people living in cities, using public transport, end of.
