It seems that the Chancellor has a made a joke about driverless cars in his important budget speech. I'll respond in my Sun column on Saturday and here, a lot, for ever.

  • You may want to stick quote marks around "joke," Jezza. It got a giggle from the MPs but that's not saying a great deal.

    "In the future, cars will be driverless but first they will be electric." Yes, Philip, assuming you can stop the predominantly foreign-owned national grid from falling to pieces, get everyone into an e-wagon before the first generation of them start dying from lithium dendrite and electrode deformation when the owners discover just what an expensive pup they've been handed or the ecological bill for building them comes due.

    But never mind all that, eh? Just rake in those taxes and enjoy the minor spike in automotive sales that your cynical economic stimulus generates for a short-term boost in revenue.

    What's actually a little more worrying is that the first thing any oppressive regime does to its population is curtail their ability to move about without government interference or a paper trail. Driverless cars are just screaming "road pricing and mass surveillance" to me, but perhaps I'm just a tinfoil-hatter.
