    Would this apply to cars with stop and start engine's like mine, or is it another way to persecute the motorists......

    It's ALL diesel engines ban in London that people are pushing for.

    2018 is the end of all diesel buses.

    And taxis? And delivery vans and fire engines and ambulances? And all the Thames water traffic?

    Not holding my breath on that one.

    Never owned a diesel car in my life and never will. The mileage I cover doesn't warrant it and secondly, they stink!:D
    Good on London if they do introduce a ban, but the number of exceptions that will have to be made could be high.

    Diesel, then petrol, now hybrid. Going in the right direction?

    London seems to get preferential treatment for everything. The Millennium Dome, The Olympics to name but a few. Lucky beggars. :D

    Highest emission in London Oxford Street.
    Cars Banned.
    Guess that means the Bus's and Black Cab's are at fault then.

    Last time the Bus's went on strike didn't the Emissions fall by 80% less.

    And don't forget to ban the Diesel Ambulances which bring the patient's.

    They will have to ban most of the trains into Marylebone and Paddington Station, as they are mostly diesel.

    Nope, petrol is next.

    EDIT: sorry I misread, I thought you wrote last. Yes you're correct.

    Would it not be cheaper to issue free masks as they do in China etc ? the Government could save Londoners whilst the rest of the Country die of emphysema

    No, those masks might stop droplets but they wouldn't filter diesel particulates.
