Driver-less cars: What is Claire Perry on for goodness sake?

Transport minister Claire Perry said: ‘I have a vision of the school-run driverless car where you wave your children off to school and they come back at 3.30.’  Article here 
Claire Perry MP

'Children could be put in 'robocar' at home and sent to school without adult.'

'Last night, a Whitehall insider noted: ‘Driverless technology could free up 31 per cent of women who don’t drive.'

Enough. Enough. See here why driver-less cars won't be for the proles. Who takes out the brains of politicians as soon as they get a ministry? Or do they undergo a brain removal before being considered for a portfolio? 

So let's get this straight. You are going to put little Jane into this machine and trust it to get her safely into her classroom and at the end of the day, pick up the correct kiddie, before the child abductor has that is, and get her home before someone has run off with her?  

Driver-less cars will only be for the elite and that's why they are trying to get everyone back to the dark ages of the proles walking and cycling when the nobs had their ponies and traps. 

This is yet another green anti driver policy whereby, in controlling our independent transport choices, they control all of us. 

Where did communism go? It's hidden in the greenery.

  1. I agree with you on this one Keith. Claire Perry is just another useless politician completely out of her depth and in the wrong job. I'm all for progress and lap up all the new technology so am not anti this new fangle idea of driver less cars but lets get real there will be a time and place for these vehicles the time is not now and the place is not on our roads as they are at the moment, maybe on Motorways in the very near future but definitely not in towns and A class roads for a long time yet...
