Butter, bread, salt and battery

electric carBozza praised supermarket chain Sainsbury’s this week after the company announced it was fitting electric car charging points at all of its London stores.

Apparently, an hour and a half  plugged into the charge point will get a battery to around 80% full, meaning a car will be able to travel half a mile fifty miles.

Boris said “I warmly welcome the arrival of Sainsbury’s network… which will put half of all London’s population within three miles of a charge point.” The scheme is designed to tie-in with Boris’ plan to make London the ‘electric vehicle capital of Europe’.

Reports that the charging devices are merely rolled oats to feed the hamsters powering these so-called ‘electric’ cars have been strenuously denied.
