Not a habit to post email chain style letters, but, this one is actually important and will stop the government charging us the British tax payer even more to drive on the roads!
THIS IS REAL AND IT IS A PROPER GOVERNMENT SITE!
The government’s proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you having to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to use it.
The tracking device will cost about £200 and in a recent study by the BBC, the lowest monthly bill was £28 for a rural florist and £194 for a delivery driver.
A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school paid £86 in one month.
On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody will know where you are at all times. They will also know how fast you have been going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit* you can expect and additional fine with your monthly bill.
If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car driver, please sign the petition on No 10’s new website
Clear as mud, that’s what they are! First moan is you have to trapse all the way to the Post Office to get the form in the first place, erm dur, they’re all “e” versions somewhere, stick ’em on a website, hey forms.gov.uk not tricky. Anyway, form in question is reclaiming Premimum Bonds. Most of the form is fine but one bit about how you only actually repay part, ooo grr. Rant over.
Council tax, it’s a pain in the arse and to high. The proposed tax/fine whatever if you’re caught speeding! What’s going on, are the motorists supposed to pay for this governments inability to manage our money.
The latest news on council funding reforms is all fine because there does need to be a solution, but with the news also that local authorities are thinking of putting in local income tax, house taxes, green taxes etc. we may as well just give the bloody government what little of our salaries we actually get paid out and claim a weekly allowance! If they take much more tax we’re not going to have any money left… and to top it off I bet most of the tax is used to pay for people claiming benefit who don’t need it and the swamp of sodding asylum seekers (I’m not even going to start on that).
All these changes to council tax if they do change, and we get more different local level taxes will make it more like the old Poll tax. You should pay a flat capped rate for the house you’re in then more depending on who’s in it. Simple.Oh and on another note good luck to Mr Estall.
