    It’s possible the electric car idea foundered because there’s evidence the Dyson team may have been a little ‘blinkered’ when designing the concept vehicle (?)

    I suspect it would have sucked, anyway.





    Ah, I recall the story of some RAF bigwigs watching an early flight by the jet-powered Gloster Whittle, and one asking how it managed without a propeller.

    Dyson misreads the general mood?

    Makes much of himself when delivering little?

    Is a poster boy for 'leave'?

    Makes an arse of himself and discredits the cause?

    Leaves nothing but questions?

    In Norway, green plates mean the vehicle has no rear seating.
