Fine VW to cover huge future NHS costs incurred due to pollution exposure
This petition had 14 supporters
The US fined Volkswagen $15 billion for the comparatively small number of illegal cars sold in the states; 482,000.
In contrast, there are 1.2million illegal affected cars in the U.K. In Europe there are far more. In fact, there are 2.6 million in Germany alone and we in the U.K. experience negative effects of pollution across Europe due to winds.
The U.K. have only fined Volkswagen £2million to cover re testing costs, but have failed to understand not just the injustice in death toll rises due to pollution for VW profits, but the added cost that the NHS will have to incur to treat the subsequent illness from said pollution.
We are calling on Theresa May to insist on a just action, against a company that clearly prioritised profits over human life.
If you are unaware of the cheating emission tests conducted by Volkswagen, see the times article here.
