More carbon hypocrisy

Why am I not surprised to discover that two thirds of Cabinet members travel in the most polluting types of cars. It turns out that of the 85 cars in the ministerial fleet, 30 are in Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) Band F and one is in the most polluting Band G, producing over 225g CO2 emissions per km. The Chancellor talked about persuading people to buy more environmentally friendly cars in his Budget.  Now we discover that Cabinet members are being chauffeured around London in some of the most polluting cars on the market. People all over the country are doing their bit to reduce their carbon footprint while the Government is totally hypocritical. No change there then.
