The electric car carnage has only just begun

by Matthew Lynn, Daily Telegraph, 9 May 2024

"They are cheaper to run. They can be simpler to manufacture. And of course, they are far better for the environment, playing a crucial role in hitting our targets to cut carbon emissions."

Rewind only a couple of years, and electric cars were the future. Yet this week, it has emerged that Ford will have to dramatically limit the supply of petrol cars to avoid paying huge fines for not selling enough of them.

Question everything and you will soon realise that nothing is what is seems to be, management of news and replacement of facts with propaganda have distorted our view of the world forever.
