    So it's started, Islington council are surcharging diesel drivers £2 to use their cars parks.

    Is this fair or are they jumping on the anti diesel bandwagon to make a money grab?

    I really doubt that people will stop using diesels just because of this charge so I can't see how they claim it will improve pollution levels or act as a deterrent.

    This is just money grabbing, there is no policy here, it will not reduce the amount of diesels on the road, just force them to pay more.
