road fund licence(tax)

HI
just been looking at mr browns car tax plans (re the last budget)as labour want to bring it in soon and back date it ,it is going to hit us hard if you tow your boat around . or should all the people that tow some form of trailer buy a small city car, 35 roat tax,that would be totaly unsafe on the roads and use that to tow. is that green enough for him
your thoughts please , tony

Why would a "small city car" be "totally unsafe on the roads" ?

.......... not only unsafe but illegal! Every car has a maximum towing weight, exceed that and break the law!
