Charging points for electric cars? Another waste of money

ONCE again that near-mythical beast, the electric/coal-powered car, is wasting tax payers’ money. Putting up these electric points is a bit like putting peanuts on a bird table in the hopes of spotting a rare bird. It seems no one has used them yet.

Electric cars are a total waste of money, though a fool and his money are easily parted. Heavily subsidised (that’s our taxes being wasted

again) they still cost two or three times more than an ordinary car; have a range of 60 miles on a warm day - thirty or less in winter; have no heating and will leave you stranded and having to be towed home. Where’s the use in that?
