Arrow Diesel cars could be banished

Telegraph linky

11 million diesel cars = scary proposition!

Glad I'm doing my bit for the environment and human health in my petrol powered V8

Love how its us that will be targeted, well when I say us I mean all the oil burners.

What they ought to be doing is tackling the main contributing factors like electricity and heating.

Good point. Refineries too, I believe, use vast quantities of electricity when producing petrol. But that's ok, because electricity is made in that big power station, which is likely COAL powered.

Lets not miss the point that policy has put people into diesel cars. And those cars are spewing carcinogenic particles into the air right in the middle of our towns and cities.
It was a mistake and it needs rectifying. **** taking has clearly failed so Audi have cleverly turned this round and with the addition of pee, produce cleaner burning diesels. Thou they still sound like a rattely tool box
