    It was a brick rule anyway. Average mpg rules just make cars really fudging boring.

    Rather than increase the mpg of their fleet, it's usually cheaper just to drop the sporty cars from the top of their range. That means all the manufacturers have boring ranges and it damages the consumer.

    Knowing 'our' luck this lockdown has been so global that the world will probably implode of toxic shock much like a smack/tinkle head when they come of the juice too quickly :D

    This gave me a good laugh. I'm sure emissions damage the consumer more.

    Levy :

    As recently as 18 March I said: “We shall all need to work together to ensure the impact of this crisis does not undermine the future stability of the Club.” The decision by governments around the world to effectively close down economies with unheard of peacetime impacts on civil liberties in order to minimise the terrible effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is the right one to protect human lives. The crushing devastation on industries in many countries, the inter-dependence of international trade and travel in every aspect of our daily life is only now beginning to be felt. Every person on this planet will be affected and in my lifetime I cannot think of something so impactful.

    When I read or hear stories about player transfers this summer like nothing has happened, people need to wake up to the enormity of what is happening around us. With over 786,000 infected, nearly 38,000 deaths and large segments of the world in lockdown we need to realise that football cannot operate in a bubble. We maybe the eighth largest Club in the world by revenue according to the Deloitte survey but all that historical data is totally irrelevant as this virus has no boundaries.

    The Club’s operations have effectively ceased, some of our fans will have lost their jobs and most will be worried about their future. Our sponsors will be concerned about their businesses and our media partners have no certainty when we may play games again or whether we will be allowed to play in front of our fans. In the meantime, the Club has an annual cost base running into hundreds of millions of pounds.

    We have seen some of the biggest clubs in the world such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus take steps to reduce their costs. Yesterday, having already taken steps to reduce costs, we ourselves made the difficult decision – in order to protect jobs – to reduce the remuneration of all 550 non-playing directors and employees for April and May by 20% utilising, where appropriate, the Government’s furlough scheme. We shall continue to review this position.

    We hope the current discussions between the Premier League, PFA and LMA will result in players and coaches doing their bit for the football eco system.

    I have no doubt we will get through this crisis but life will take some time to get back to normal. I hope we will never take for granted so many basic things such as getting off the train at Seven Sisters, walking along Tottenham High Road, entering our stadium with our family and friends, and buying a beer and pie ahead of watching Spurs play at home.

    Many families will have lost loved ones, many businesses will have been destroyed, millions of jobs lost and many Clubs whether big or small may struggle to exist. It is incumbent on me as Chairman to ensure we do everything we can to protect our employees, our fans, our partners, our Club for future generations – and equally important – our wider community where we have such an immense sense of responsibility.

    I wish everyone good health, a speedy return to normal life and watching Spurs at home in front of our fans. Stay safe

    Unless its Levy just forewarning that the climate regarding our transfer business is taking a sharp u-turn just as it looked like the coffers were open?

    So we must be somewhere near carbon neutral at the moment, if you were an Extinction Rebellion supporter this is what you've been aiming for (not the circumstances). Appreciate things would be different (electric cars etc) but would be interesting to hear if now people are confronted with what it would likely entail if they've changed their opinion on it?

    I thought it would be better myself, but reports say Global CO2 emissions are projected to drop 6% this year because of coronavirus.

    I agree it will be difficult, very difficult, but you got to start somewhere is the way I see it. My local greens are already speaking this language as part of their policy platform so it is getting traction.

    I don't quite get your second point. Sorry.
