Shane Ross, Minister for Political Symbolism and Political Forrest Gumping, posing next to an electric car charger that didn't work set off a train of thought in my head.

For a start, I'm a sceptic about electric cars: you hear so many nightmare stories about their range and charging time you sometimes wonder why they don't come with a Fred Flintstone-style hatch in the floor so you can at least make some progress with your own feet as a last resort.

Perhaps we could kill two public policy birds with one stone by putting some sort of pedalling mechanism into the cars so that on long-haul journeys you could get a workout and charge your battery together.
