" I wouldn't characterise these proposed policies as hard left, they are just redistributionist, which is a perfectly legitimate policy goal if you believe that tackling extreme inequality is an important role of government (itself largely a political rather than economic decision). You don't need to be a lefty to believe that."

"I bought my electric Renault Zoe 2 months ago and I can't imagine buying a combustion car ever again. Today I parked it next to another EV at the station. Electric is happening and to my grandkids, or maybe even my kids, the idea of roads full of combustion cars with all their noise and fumes will be as weird as restaurants full of smokers are today."
