From The Socialist newspaper, 27 April 2016

Most diesels emit illegal levels of poison

97% of modern diesel cars break European Union rules on poisonous nitrogen oxide emissions. Testing firm Emissions Analytics found a quarter producing six times the limit or more.

This comes after last year's emissions test cheating scandal, centring on car maker Volkswagen. It now seems pretty much every diesel out there is killing us.

The Socialist says: the car bosses can't be trusted. Nationalise their factories and assets as part of a democratic, socialist plan of production. For mass investment in green technology and cheap, publicly owned mass transport.
