THE Welsh TV Channel S4C runs a programme called Y Byd ar Bedwar similar to 'Question Time'.

In a recent programme, a smug electric vehicle owner was saying his car was cheaper to run than a conventional fossil fuel one.

The presenter and panel were slow not to challenge his assertion.

Of course it's cheaper now at the moment, but as EVs grow in numbers any, and every, Government is going to slap some form of heavy tax upon them to replace the current thirty billion pounds a year UK motorists currently pay in fuel tax.

Then we will stop hearing smug claims of how cheap EVs are.

It seems inevitable that we will all get EVs and also inevitable we will all pay massively to run them one way or another.
