Abolishing excise duty on Ptrol.....

Now thats a good idea....... take off all the excise duty on petrol and instigate a mileage charge .... That means that ribbers/gardeners ect.. will be able to buy petrol at 35 p a liter.. .
Results - no traffic on the m25 the Thames crowded with ribbers going to work in London, The canals likewise and the coastal areas jammed with people and small boats. Not a bad idea Mr. Darling ... but absolute CRAP.

Crap indeed.
I hear they want to fit GPS sat tracking to our cars to only see how far we have travelled so they can bill us by the mile (£1.30 per mile)
This of course will never be used to abuse our human rights like finding out where we have been and how fast we been driving.
Still taking the duty off petrol is a good idea!

Great - to get from one side of London to the other will ONLY cost about £80 - do that 5 times a week and you are talking £400 - a mere drop in the ocean.............

It used be the case, we would go over the border to Northern Ireland, fill up with cheaper fuel, now all the NI border stations are gone, closed up and everyone travels over to the Free State to buy their fuel in Euroland with Euros, contributing hugely to the Irish Economy, as even at 97 cent a litre, a lot of revenue goes to the Govt coffers.It used to be the opposite years ago, but in border areas it is easy for people to make the switch, as loglisticly its only a hop across to Southern Ireland.Thats probably why Bertie gets on so well with Tony, Tony is working for us.........

Iím sure everyone, in the real world can see that this system wonít work!
But there again politicians donít live in the real world; this just goes to prove what every one knew in the first place ďthey live in cloud cuckoo-landĒ.
The logistics of trying to get all vehicles fitted with the new TAX box, & tracking the millions of vehicles travelling billions of miles in this country donít bear thinking about.
Let alone trying to get the money off of people, and what happens to the number of people who could no longer afford to travel to work? I suppose their only option will be to go on state benefit.
Basic pay £22,000
Tax per year £4,488
Pension per year £1,740
NI per year £2,028
Mileage TAX at £1.30 £13,520

OOPS thatís only going to leave me with £224 per year to live on

What are they trying to do? Bring the country to a standstill?
