End in sight for ‘Chelsea Tractors’?

Recent events have caused a fall in sales of 4X4 vehicles commonly referred to as ‘Chelsea Tractors’ and wiped a chunk off their second-hand value. Mr Livingstone has said that he will increase the Congestion Charge on these vehicles. Mr Blair’s idea of introducing Road Charging has also alarmed the 4X4 brigade. Needless to say, all drivers are alarmed at this last proposal. High mileage drivers like me will be most affected. It may result in prices rising and profits falling!
It is interesting to note that most new vehicles sold throughout Europe now have diesel engines. This is only natural since this fuel produces the lowest carbon emissions at the moment. In the future we will see electric vehicles becoming popular now that battery technology can give such vehicles the power to be exciting.
