    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    Yes I am a bit but as I said I just find these look at me type threads patronizing. My mum always told me not too show off.

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    The sale price of a 2nd hand car is not the same as the average price of a car on the road. Are you seriously trying to tell me the average motorist is driving around in a 17k car. that is delusional. If you are then I have a few 9 year old cars you can have for you and your mates I will...

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    Its the nature of these endless EV threads that I find pointless. In reality the reason why many cant or wont get an EV is not range issues or charging problems or the worry about if it can tow your caravan its simply they cant afford one so its not an option. The way people talk on here they...

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    They may well be dropping but they are still out of reach for the average motorist. Let me repeat myself as you must of missed it. The average age of a car on the road today is 9 years old. You can get a 9 year old car for 5k comfortably, probably less. How do you get the average motorist into...

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    It doesn't exist for the masses though does it. You may well be able to afford an EV but for the average driver it will be a very long time before they are driving EV's Its great if your rich but not so if your struggling to make ends meet. Hardly something worth celebrating. I didn't say 9...

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    To get the millions and millions of cheap EV's available for the average person will take much longer than 10 years is what I mean.

    I think 10 years is considerably optimistic.

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    This is fantasy to many. did you not read my post. The average age of a car on the road today is 9 years old. So the vast majority of drivers drive a vehicle that is worth less than 5k . I doubt very many of these drivers have finance on a 9 year old car they most likely own it outright. This...

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    And this is the real issue. Its not trying to convince the top few % to spend 30k plus on an EV its how do we make an EV for the average person the millions and millions out there who wont or cant spend much more than 5k on a vehicle.

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    Its not new technology my Dad was riving an EV at work 50 years ago. According to auto trader there are under 200 EV'S for less than £5 compared too 75'000 diesel and petrol cars. Its going to take years to get to similar figures of EV's available for the average driver.

    "Nobody in their right mind would buy a used EV..."

    These EV threads are all well and good for those who can afford new or nearly new but what about the vast majority. The average age of a motor vehicle on the roads at the moment is just under 9 years old. You can easily get a 9 year old ford focus for under 5 grand how does the average driver...

    Post office woes

    Was it international ? Royal mail only do tracked and signed for international services but thats only covered to £50 If so that's very brave sending a £2000 item which would almost certainly be opened at customs. If its UK and you sent it 1st class signed for then that's only covered for £20...

    Middlesbrough unpaid council tax

    I successfully appealed my council tax band about 20 years ago. For some reason mine and another property in the street were on a higher band than the rest. All the properties were identical so I dont know how this was originally assessed. Anyhow I got all the over-payment back. It was pretty...

    Green Party Tax Rise Proposals

    Also as a sole trader any loans etc you receive you are personally responsible for so if your business failed you are liable personally for the amount still owed and would have to pay any balance from your personal funds or have a CCJ ( COUNTY COURT JUDGEMENT ) against you. A Business registered...

    Green Party Tax Rise Proposals

    There are 3.1 milion people in the UK who are self employed but classed as sole traders. A sole trader cant pay them-self a wage, their wage is the profit left after everything has been paid out. You then have to pay tax on that profit like any other PAYE person by way of a self assessment...
