Ok, here is a pertinent piece of text, I will translate.
National MP Chris Bishop described the impasse as "an utter humiliation of Julie Anne Genter and the Greens".
"Despite all the rhetoric this Government has exactly the same policy when it comes to EVs as the previous Government," he said.
Bishop said there was more that could be done to decarbonise the public transport fleet.
"It's good the Government is seeing sense on the car tax which would have a negative effect on emissions and would have a punitive effect people who can't make the switch," he said.
Bold 1 means The Coalition, i.e. Peters doesn't want farmers touched. National, similarly, also has no green policy.
Bold 2 means BS. Of course anything that penalises ICE cars and benefits lower fuel cars such as Swifts, Hybrids and EV's is beneficial.
The simple, and its VERY simple approach is to exclude any vehicle genre that has no EV equivalent. That impasse should be relatively brief. To account for farmers. ICE owners who have a boat, well just hang onto the ICE and wait.
It also means Labour has to decide how green it wants to be. Do they want to be re elected or be voted in??
