So there is now a warning from the transport secretary against diesels.
http://www.itv.com/news/2017-02-25/drivers-warned-over-buying-diesel-cars/

Is this an excuse to hike the tax on diesel fuel or is there a sound argument for the switch away from diesel?

Would a scrappage scheme work?

Have petrol engines closed the gap now when it comes to economy and performance compared to diesels?

My heart goes out to all you diesel owners, especially after you were sold the dream from the government. All I say is that they must all drink an awful lot of Horlicks to be able to sleep at night as clearly their conscience is missing...:(

Os I agree and all voters should know that politicians and bureaucrats don't have a conscience and will do and say whatever it takes to keep their jobs. ?-/

PS I always can tell when they are telling porkies their lips are moving ;)
