The best thing BoJo could do is shut up, in fact if no one saw him either that wouldn't be a bad thing either.

Not really a surprise. I only hope it turns out to not be as bad as it looks like it will be.

Sadly not really news. The UK's woeful lack of investment in Science/Technology/Engineering and Maths goes back decades. If you ignore the essentials long enough then these things will catch up with you! It also one of the reason driving our terrible productivity too!

Old diesel engines are pretty dirty, but more modern ones are a lot better. Older petrol engines are pretty dirty too, mind you modern ones while cleaner also produce plenty NOx as they are pretty lean burn like diesel.

Either way, both need to be phased out in big cities, starting with the dirtier ones first.

+Barry Smith Over 90% of all journeys in London are by public transport (which does include buses and London taxis), so while the cars are visible they only move a small fraction of the people. Getting rid of them would free up a lot of space and only inconveniences a small number of people.

Having said that the bus and taxis fleet needs cleaning up too. Buses in London are getting cleaner and trolley-buses and trams are viable, but at the moment too many are still older dirtier diesels. Taxis need to go electric quickly but that's a big ask too.

The bottom line is petrol and diesel fumes are killing a lot of people in the big cities. The short distances and good alternatives in the larger cities like London mean that while the change will be expensive and painful, it's a lot easier than make the change in rural areas.

Not good to lose the jobs, but falling house prices are probably a good thing. As house prices fall along with the pound, I would eventually expect to see foreign speculators moving in to snap up bargains... a bit like SoftBank buying ARM.

Good!

May can't have her cake and eat it. In is in, and out is out, she can be in and out at the same time - though it is a policy long favoured by Westminster!

Some of this is profiteering but some of it is because the Pound is now weaker. Expect more of the same over time as the pound falls to it lower Brexit level.

If only we had an export industry that made things from non-imported things we could take advantage of a weak pound, but as the UK doesn't make much, that's a wasted opportunity.

Still a weak pound is good for foreign raiders looking to buy up UK assets on the cheap - like ARM Holdings...
