Budget = Tax

So, it’s budget time in the UK again, and at this time of seasonal fun and a tradition of giving, it is of course the downtrodden motorist who’se going to be doing the giving…

1.25p on a litre of fuel – just when prices started falling from the oil price changes too.

Of course, the inflation targets are heading the right way (as long as you don’t count the cost of domestic heating…) – and of course the government is still looking for more ways to tax the public… Road Charging, oh yes, that’s a good one – especially as we can fleece motorists by not providing viable alternative public transport…

Hey, Mr Brown, how about the Government gives us something for our money other than a war the public generally doesn’t support, roads full of potholes, ID cards which nobody wants, a rail system that barely gets from A to B, and an NHS with enormous waiting lists?

Hey Labour – Start listening, or don’t be surprised come the elections…
