Electric accomplishment

The urge to build and improve electric cars is breaking out again, under environmental pressures. If the government continues the present new war on drivers, speed may soon be regarded as so criminal that pootling along at milk-float pace until the batteries give out will be avidly encouraged by politicians. Somehow. I cannot see myself ever commuting in an electric vehicle. However, to mark this...
