BBC Local Radio JVS Show - almost 1 hour of EV bashing

I like the bit at about 14 minutes where JVS said he was concerned that they don't have "enough ommph for stuff like pulling away at roundabouts" to be practical. You know the thing that is arguably one of the major strengths of EV's!!. The guy on the phone corrected him but did not point out he was a moron for thinking that.
So basically not a lot of background research by the host
The first guy who called in is an EV owner, and even he was repeating the myth about the batteries needing replacement! That's worrying, because it's a kind of Daily Mail / Jeremy Clarkson lie that they make up - and clearly members of the public are absorbing it and repeating it.

You wonder what the future holds, when anyone can make up anything on the internet, and if it gets repeated enough it becomes a 'fact'.
