You couldn't make it up

"Green" vehicle
For those of you who missed an article in Monday's Scotsman, the SNP government is not doing too well with its target of 100% use of alternative fuels by public sector vehicles by 2020.  The article can be found here.  I've extracted the bit which stands out to me.
Last year, the Scottish Government's Low Carbon Vehicle Procurement Support Scheme pledged £3.6 million to "bridge the gap" between the cost of a normal and a low carbon vehicle. But at an additional cost of £20,000 for a car and £40,000 for a van, the funding would allow public-sector organisations to invest in a total of just 180 new green cars or 90 low- carbon vans.
