Why the Hebrides? Oakley would do fine.

Is this to raise more money so other budgets can be offset or this genuinely to help with congestion and reduce global warming? So far I've not heard a peep out of Croney Flier about a scheme to help people work from home in large companies. I'd love it!

It's almost as though the ability to travel is now being turned into a new class system. They US uses a similar tracking scheme for insurance I think but thats voluntary.

It would seem logical and fair, wouldn't it? And it would be a fantastic bonus for boat users.

However, even I can't see them missing an opportunity to double charge us though. My guess is that they might reduce exise duty a bit for appearances sake, but that's about all. They'd probably find a reason to put it back up again after a while too.

Help! I'm turning into Biggles!

John

I think he was suggesting Biggles' back yard instead of his own!

It's nice to know I'm not totally misunderstood.
