Diesel

A couple of rogue software developers my arse. When in doubt, blame it on the IT department. It's amazing how in most big companies, blame is delegated downwards and credit delegated upwards.

I worked for car manufacturers for thirty years and can state unequivocally that senior management has been aware of (and indeed encouraged)  the 'manipulation' of emission and fuel economy figures for the last fifteen.

Actual NO2 emissions from diesels are 10-15 times higher than they would be if the published figures were accurate. Empirical data that demonstrates this has been available for five years. This stuff actually kills people, rather than making the place warmer.

Unfortunately the influence of the diesel lobby (energy companies, motor manufacturers, transport, agriculture) is so powerful that this was quietly ignored by the Energy Minister.

There must be a few execs shitting themselves at the moment. If it's proven that other companies are doing the same, then the preferential treatment diesel users get at the moment will cease. Motorists will shift back to petrol engines and the massive investment currently taking place in diesel engine manufacturing facilities will have been wasted.

Are you thinking of the photographer who was married to Princess Margaret?

I thought one of these spy chaps had turned into a woman. Maybe i was thinking of Bruce Jenner. I get mixed up quite a lot nowadays. I blame it on the statins.

I think that was Bradley Manning, who is now Chelsea Not-so-Manning.

The (special) one shagging Chelsea at the moment is Mourinho.
