The electric car industry is rising all the time and gaining in popularity with motorists, this is despite the government of the UK announcing that electric cars are now to be taxed just like their oil running counterparts – a bit of a u-turn when the whole purpose of the vehicles was that they were going to be tax-free because…
So, in their 2015 manifesto the Conservatives made a list of promises, one of those just so happened to be that the Tories would 'commit to no increases in VAT, National Insurance contributions or Income Tax.'

His demise was ultimately brought about by the same death stroke that took down ex Prime Minister David Cameron – Brexit. So where is he? Is he still that upset that…
