Chardonnay Socialists

"The boss of New Zealand's largest vehicle company wants Kiwis to pay more for their petrol.

Toyota New Zealand CEO Alistair Davis says our fuel prices are far too low - the fourth-lowest in the OECD in fact.

That's encouraging us not only to own bigger cars, but to drive them longer distances. And that means we're in reverse when it comes to meeting international greenhouse gas emission obligations..."

What I would like is to stuff a live rat up this shit-eating greenie's arse!

It's often said the 'being green' is a wet dream for those with plenty of disposable income. Enough that they wouldn't be put out by doubling the price of fuel.

Meanwhile, back in the real world...

Of course, this fellow isn't exactly unbiased because he sells the Prius, which is such an awful car to drive no sensible person would buy it unless they were forced to. Not even a rational environmentalist (if such a thing exists) would buy it because of the impact of producing and eventually disposing of all those lithium cells.
