VW Emissions - The state is always incompetent so needs to be as small as possible.

The state test cars because car makers can't be trusted. VW behaved as expected (untrustworthily), it is the state that has failed by not detecting this earlier.

Every single employee employed in the testing of vehicles should be sacked and any pay they received clawed back and given to the car owners, VW and taxpayers.


You have probably heard about the 'VW emissions scandal':


They have admitted that they programmed their cars engine management systems to run extra-clean while emissions were being tested so they were within the legally set emission limits, but that the engine management system ran less clean, but more powerfully when in use and being tested for power.

So all the blame is being put on VW... However what is it they actually did (apart from the academic offence of 'breaking the law')?

What they did is make a mockery of the US government. A government who introduced laws and expensive testing/compliance red tape, and testing regimes that completely failed to do what they said it would do... All this time, money, effort that the US government have expended on these laws and testing has been completely wasted - millions, if not billions of taxpayer dollars, down the drain for absolutely nothing... In fact, worse than nothing, for a false sense of security.

What idiots thought it was a good idea for the government to create unenforcible laws? And create a huge expensive regime to fail to enforce those laws?
