Screw you, you miserable little statists.
Top of the EU's list to cut climate change emissions is a target of "zero" for the number of petrol and diesel-driven cars and lorries in the EU's future cities.
Siim Kallas, the EU transport commission, insisted that Brussels directives and new taxation of fuel would be used to force people out of their cars and onto "alternative" means of transport.
"That means no more conventionally fuelled cars in our city centres," he said. "Action will follow, legislation, real action to change behaviour."
Because the peasants won't simply tug their forelock and do what their betters tell them to, the EU lords will force them to.
Remember what has been pointed out many times, The power to tax is the power to destroy. I'll add and the power to enslave.
