The UK government has committed to transitioning from fossil fuel to electrical vehicles. Many people support this goal because it will result in a more sustainable world. However, many others have concerns about the transition. These concerns include not being able to afford the cost of expensive new electrical vehicles and not being able to charge their vehicles. The aim of this project is to perform an analysis of the discourse related to electrical vehicles on social media and specifically Twitter. This analysis will include the use of sentiment analysis to determine what percentage of people support or have concerns about the transition to electrical vehicles. It will also include the use of topic models to automatically determine what aspects of the transition people are concerned about.
