Future pod and EV lullaby | Brown Car Guy Update 11022020

Mad Murray’s future pod succeeds McLaren F1 plus Nissan’s lullaby for EVs that puts you to sleep

The father of the McLaren F1, Gordan Murray’s futurist concept is a single-seat EV autonomous pod-like tiny car – what do you make of this? Clever or naff? Meanwhile electric cars are a kind of ‘nightmare’ for 51% of parents who regularly take their small children out in a car to put them to sleep.

Write him off if you must, but don’t ignore him

How is it we live in a world where all the political pundits tell us that a man who speaks of a just, fair, peaceful and hopeful future for us and our young has no chance of winning an election, whilst an out-of-touch, flighty, egomaniac focussed solely on strengthening her own power base (like her counterpart across the Atlantic) – to the obvious detriment of what we used to understand democracy to be – is a sure bet?
