Infrastructure first - green cars afterwards - in Brighton & Hove

Like 101 Dalmatians where Roger is humming his latest tune and reminds his wife - "melody first", so it must be the same when you're trying to encourage a green vehicle solution.

It's all very well having an electric car but if there's nowhere to recharge, then it becomes about as much use as a chocolate fireguard.

The problem comes in funding a recharging network, sufficient enough to put potential users minds at rest that they will be able to recharge during a journey, and encourage purchase.

So I felt a little sorry for Brighton & Hove officials who have plans to complete a 16 charging point installation scheme by the end of this year.

Despite the fact that so far (reportedly), there are only 3 electric cars in the vicinity.

Still, at least they won't have to queue at the 'pumps'.
