The current debate on road tax, the environment, pollution is a massive government deception born out of the need to raise cash to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Let everyone be quite clear that the road fund licence, or road tax, is meant to fund the building of roads in the UK.
Let us also be quite clear that the Government collects far more in road tax than it spends on roads, and that toll roads simply add insult to injury.
Raising road tax and raising fuel duty is all about raising taxes in general to fund the government’s excessive expenditure on unnecessary wars, second homes for MP’s, and millions on pounds in bonuses paid to incompetent government departments, which by the government’s own admission are not fit for purpose.
Let us also be quite clear that these extra taxes have absolutely nothing to do with reducing environmental pollution.
The Government needs money, so they mug the helpless motorist. It is Highway Robbery.
What the government don’t want is for the motorist to fight back and vote for representatives who would safeguard both their civil rights and their finances, but you do have that right and now is the time to use that right.
Write to your MP and tell him that unless fuel duty is reduced and road taxes kept in line with expenditure on roads that your vote will be going to someone else.
