£2000 road tax??? - martint123
I see that the libdems are reported to be dropping income tax by 2p and funding it by increasing road tax.

" with road tax likely to rise to over £2,000 for the most polluting cars."

Sadly, I suspect 'the most polluting cars' will be those who were first registered before the CO2 emissions were in the V5 as at present.

Just all spin, they will never get elected but it creates some headlines.

No party should increase road tax until more of the ludicrous amounts we already pay is actually spent on the roads IMHO. Current figure is about 18% SFAIK

Who are they trying to impress? A few tree huggers who are probably against capitalist Western governments anyway and would never vote?

They seem to forget that an awful lot of people in this country actually drive.

Guess you will just end up with more untaxed vehicles on the road.

Typical headline grabber. What about those people who live in the countryside and need a 4x4, rather than the Chelsea tractor brigade they are targeting.

As already mentioned, the Liberals do not have a hope in hell of being elected, so thankfully this high taxation will never happen.

I read frequently, but only post when I have something useful to say.

Lib Dems are just part of the trilateral pantomime that makes people believe there is a democracy. Ignore them.
