    Default Conservative-LibDem Policy, looks like nothing about fuel tax :(

    Hi,
    Just skimmed through the 34 page document they released today, and unless I've missed it, not a single mention of the sliding fuel tax system that the one of the parties wanted to introduce during the election spin

    Nothing at all that helps the motorists that I can see anywhere, but I might have missed it!

    thats because the libdems want to increase the fuel duty the tories want a sliding scale in line with oil prices.

    because they can't come to an agreement they have left it as is.

    oil prices are hovering around the $70 a barrel prices in europe are dropping here there going up.

    You didn't read the document carefully enough I reckon - they're saying plenty about stuff that will affect motorists - like how they think the M6 toll road (one of the most expensive pay-per-drive roads in the world) is an excellent business model, according to Phillip Hammond, the conservative Transport secretary.

    particularly in favour of the ID card scrappage. would not support any government who insisted on pushing that on everyone at £billions of expense *(£18 billion estimate back in 2005, I guess it'd be more now).

    I'm in favour of scrapping it too but if you read the news there will be almost no savings as the scheme was to be financed from people being compelled to buy one

    yeah, labour said it "would be self-funding" at a cost of £5-6 billion by the compulsory fee we'd all eventually have to pay for the cards - but the opposition said the real cost would escalate, as is always the case. Where would labour get the extra money when needed... they'd have just dipped into the coffers as usual I expect.
    Good riddance to it
    There's still an ID card scheme for immigrants so I hear, which is perfectly acceptable as long as it is self-funded by those entering the country.

    uhh.... buys me half a tank of fuel, instead of the money I'd spend on ID card fee I suppose.

    I was talking about lib dem/tory policy. Threads don't always stick 100% on topic around here, don't worry about it.
