F**k London

By Posted on 2 min read 442 views

Man, sometimes I get pissed, and today is definitely one of those days.

I’ve been looking at getting a new car, primarily because we don’t have enough boot space for the baby and the dog.

Not that we’re putting the baby in the boot (obviously), but they come with a caravan quantity of stuff.

The plan was to get something a few years old, probably a diesel estate or SUV, and then I could look at getting myself a “fun” car.

That was all going well, until my mum pointed out that…

London is getting a new ultra low emissions car tax, to add on top of the congestion charge.

This is the T-Charge, and if your car is below new ultra low emissions levels, then you get an extra tenner added to your bill when you drive into London.

I mean FFS!

That means it’s going to cost nearly £22 just to drive into London, plus parking and any other charges.

Unless you have, effectively, a brand new car.

So… I’ve been looking at some ultra low emissions cars like the Mitsubishi PHEV and the Golf Estate GTE.

None really jump out at me, so I thought I’d ask you.

Do you know of any good hybrid car, comfortable for long distance driving, and with enough boot space for a family (dogs included)?

I can’t go electric only because Max has the potential to be rushed into a specialist hosptial a hundred miles away, so I need a car that can be fueled and on the road in minutes if necessary.

Let me know what you think.
