I’m not normally one to get political but action needs to be taken on this. We already have the most expensive petrol in Europe, if not the world, as well as paying vast amounts of road tax. This is a tax too far.

I use my car for work; if I didn’t do the job I do, I probably wouldn’t have a car. My car is small, economical and has very low CO2 emissions. If I could afford an electric or hybrid car, I would buy one. This is yet another tax on average people by this government, who have already pushed the tax burden on ordinary people higher than it has ever been. The revenue raised from all the various motoring-based taxes must surely be enough to provide cheap, reliable public transport; instead, bus and train fares rise all the time with no discernible improvement in the service.

P.S. Normal knitting service will be resumed when I have calmed down!
