Yeah but I think having a car getting recharged at night would be more common than hoovering the house or watching TV at 3am, special tariffs if needed.
But to me the key point is that the electric car cannot really replace petrol cars, will be something else
PS to Rangerone : How funny !
(remember Yorktown ? )
I was being ironic.
Unlike a lot of Americans I actually LIKE the French. And I've read $h1tloads about history and particularly military history, so I know all about the French intervention...
Surrendering and knowing when it is time to quit are not exactly the same thing.(Dien Bien Phu & Vietnam comes to mind) People who call the French surrender monkeys overlook the Maquis.
More power to the French if they can outdo the Chinese in electric cars. (If my money isn't going to be spent here, I'd rather it go to France than China)
Actually if I ever get the money saved up for another vacation, I might be in Paris in a few years. I did a 10-day 360-degree circuit around Ireland by car in 2005, so I'm chomping at the bit to do my planned London-Bath-Stonehenge->Chunnel->Paris vacation.
An ideology is by definition not a search for TRUTH-but a search for PROOF that its point of view is right
Equals barter and negotiate-people with power just take
You cant defend freedom by eliminating it-unknown
Our elected reps should wear sponsor patches on their suits so we know who they represent-like Nascar-Roy
