TECH experts have confirmed that the UK could have a driverless government as soon as 2020.
Engineers working on the project claim a fully automated government would cut risks to the public by operating via logic-based algorithms, improving on the current system of vanity, short-termism and arrogance.
Professor Joseph Turner said: “In years to come, putting error-prone humans behind the wheel of a country will be recognised as a backwards practice.
“The vast majority of accidents caused while in power – endless elections, barefaced lies, Jeremy Hunt – are the result of the poor decision-making of the person in the driving seat.
“A driverless government will also be able to wirelessly communicate with other driverless governments around the world, slashing the risk of major collisions between them to close to zero.”
Pizza chef Wayne Hayes said: “I miss the old erratic lurching-violently-from-side-to-side days, when you never knew what the government would ram into next.
“Still I suppose it’s progress.”
