Explaining why he bought a Lexus ‘hybrid’, a less environmentally sound car than the Toyota Prius ‘hybrid’:
Mr Cameron argued that the official hybrid might not be big enough. “My problem is that often when I go on tour, I have a lot of people in the car with me and I found when I used a Prius it meant we had to have two cars rather than one, so I don’t think it would be very good for the environment.”
I was then quite tickled to read Chris Huhne’s statement:
“To suggest that a Prius is not adequate for a senior politician is utter nonsense. Sir Menzies Campbell received a tour around my constituency in my Prius only this morning. If it is good enough for Menzies Campbell, then it is good enough for David Cameron.”
I’m sure Ming is touched by the generous comparison, Chris.
