I'd like to drive a G-Wiz

Boris Johnson has almost persuaded me. Light, powered by battery, "no more noxious to the atmosphere than a baby's breath" and a dream to park, the G-Wiz has nothing to do with bestofthebrits, but Johnson's gallant defence of it (the government wants to ban the G-Wiz) does –

"It's therefore about treating people like grown-ups, and letting them take their own risks, without endlessly and expensively substituting the judgment and protection of the state. You have only to take one look at the plucky little G-Wiz to see that is no less (and no more) dangerous than a bicycle. We don't need the Department of Transport to tell us that, and we certainly don't need Brussels.
