Some months ago, when the VW dieselgate story first broke, we suggested that venal politicians will use the scandal to make hay with increased tax take.

Cynicism aside, it is plainly obvious to anyone who breathes the air in London that diesel is a bad thing to be burning in cars and should be consigned to history.

This tax change will be the first on many. If you were thinking of making your next car a diesel, you have been warned..
