Electric Car Oversupply Fiasco: Sunak Under Fire for Net Zero ‘Con’
Mike Parry on GB News Shatters the Silence on Alleged Electric Vehicle ‘Scam’
In the heart of Great Britain, a storm is brewing in the automotive industry, with broadcaster Mike Parry spearheading a fervent charge against UK Rishi Sunak and his steadfast net zero vehicle initiative. This new wave of scrutiny comes amidst a rumoured push from the Prime Minister to expedite the phasing out of petrol and diesel cars, despite growing concerns and opposition from the Conservative MPs.
Parry, renowned for his no-nonsense approach to news analysis, unveiled the supposed truth behind the governmental drive to promote electric vehicles (EVs) during a recent broadcast on GB News. The outspoken broadcaster minced no words as he labelled the move a “scam”, emphasising an alleged oversupply of electric cars in the market, which he believes is fostering a bubble, particularly noted in North London.
“I think the industry are putting the pressure on,” Parry proclaimed, dissecting the electric vehicle situation with razor-sharp criticism. “They’re doing this the wrong way around. I can reveal to you that there is already an oversupply of electric cars in the world, and they’re going down in price.”
Further deepening the controversy, he highlighted a stark disparity in the distribution of electric car charging points across various regions in the UK. In his words, areas like Westminster and Islington have a significantly higher number of charging points compared to other cities such as Coventry, Nottingham, and Burnley combined, suggesting a concentration of efforts and resources in a select part of the country.
To Parry, this disproportionate focus forms part of a larger ‘North London bubble situation’, with the industry failing to stimulate genuine demand across the broader population. “It’s a total North London-London bubble situation, there is no demand,” he criticised.
Moreover, Parry didn’t shy away from raising concerns over the safety of these electric vehicles, describing them as “dangerous on the roads.”
Sunak, who has recently been buoyed by an unforeseen triumph in the Uxbridge & South Ruislip by-election, maintains a firm stance on the net zero initiative, vowing to approach the matter with a “promised and pragmatic” mindset. This resolve comes even as public sentiment shows wavering support for a swift transition to electric vehicles, with numerous individuals expressing reservations about adopting this more eco-friendly mode of transport.
Current data suggests a divided nation with regards to the switch, as the Road to 2030 report discloses that only 47 per cent of British drivers perceive electric vehicles as compatible with their lifestyles. Despite this, the Department for Transport is seemingly undeterred, planning for 22 per cent of new cars sold next year to be electric, a figure set to surge beyond 50 per cent by 2028.
This narrative unfolds against the backdrop of a purported significant breakthrough from Toyota in electric car technology, promising a 620-mile range and rapid 20-minute charging times, potentially offering a more practical alternative for hesitant motorists.
As the nation stands on the cusp of a vehicular revolution, only time will tell whether the electric car initiative will cruise to success or stall amidst a climate of doubt and controversy.
