Re: Khan being an idiot on this one

I can't help suspect that this is one of the pushes behind smart meters. If the smart meter can determine that you are charging an EV (through current drain, separate dedicated charging circuit or whatever) then it is quite possible for an alternative tariff (including additional tax) can be implemented just for the electricity used to charge the EV. The EVs will eventually cost just as much to run as ICE vehicles.
