Anyone who needs cheering up can follow the escapades of a BBC experiment.

'So, in what is arguably an unfair test of a car designed mostly for short-distance motoring, the BBC decided to try to drive an electric Mini the 484 miles (778km) from London to Edinburgh.'

It is, unexpectedly, honest reporting and is totally winding the greens up on the comments page.

Interesting.

Can't imagine the BBC taking anything other than an anti-Govt/pro-MET office line on this. But could spell trouble for Chris Huhne though if it turns out his office was the one issuing the 'gag'.
