I wouldn't want to be in any EV with known tendencies for brake failure, accelerating on full power for no reason, carrying straight on into undergrowth or buildings and failing to take a bend when programmed for self drive..nooo way.

Cool. Lots of us ev drivers experienced none of those things.

With throttle by Wire, brake by wire and steer by wire in modern day ice cars that can happen to anyone but yeah it’s cool to just blame ev like always.

Our future is secured. Ev will take care of us!!!!

It's a long video but basically the fun starts from the 13th minute on so you could skip and start watching from then and I really do echo his thoughts on the matter

That council is like it has a Sheriff of Nottingham leading it from Robin Hood times.

Britains car industry is under threat of collapse if it continues its blind path towards only new EV cars at 2030, there is no back up plan for newer battery pack supply, the race is already lost putting 800,000 jobs at risk.

Mechanics are suddenly going to be a lot more popular with everyone wanting to keep their ICE cars running for as long as possible...

Elon musk is the only reason why I would possibly consider buying a Tesla. The man is a complete total genius, and even if he was the biggest dumb ass on the planet I still like him for what he did with Twitter.

I mean morals aside, dude is smart.

If he was able to run for presidency, I would 100000000% vote for him.

We need him in our lives!!!!í

I don’t think Musk would turn down the job due to the pay — money is not his primary motivator. Musk is obviously very smart, but his intelligence is not the kind that would make a great leader. He does not want to deal with 435 representatives and 100 senators trying to get things done. I think he would be a terrible president and that he would hate the job.

In my opinion, the best politician is the one that doesn't want the job but performs the job because of their sense of patriotism and to do better for the community.

That is exactly why I wouldn't. He completely screwed Twitter when he took over, fired all the staff and turned it into a zombie of a company. Not to mention the nonsense he spouts every day. Using his status and power to call people pedophiles and circle jerk with his buddies over inconsequential things and bang random girls when his wife isn't looking.

He has no morals and just looks after his own interests. I think of him as Trump but smart rather than dumb i.e. a complete asshole of a person.

The fact that he only listens to himself and can't work with others means he would be a terrible leader for a democratic society.

Yeah, I know how some people donít like an equal playing field when it comes to speech. I imagine some hate him pretty good. One-sided control at Twitter is over. Same thing needs to happen with YouTube, Instagram, and every other one-sided speech controlled social media outlet.

It's not about equal speech, he's not into that. He's into his own speech over that of others. He doesn't care about left, right, up, down or whatever - he just cares about himself. That's his way of working.

He didn't like twitter for covering him so he buys out the company so now he has the whole thing to himself. He can spout all the nonsense he wants and if you disagree, you're out.
