    Default Gas Guzzlers my ar*e

    Red Ken has said he's putting the congestion tax up to £25 in order to stop 'gas guzzlers'.

    To prove the lie, this is a list of cars that will be hit.

    If you thought the mayor of London's latest proposal to increase the congestion charge from £8 to £25 would just hit 4x4 drivers, think again. SMMT has today put together examples of 10 of the family cars – people carriers, estates and family saloons – that will also be liable for this 212 per cent hike in the central London motoring tax.

    1. Vauxhall Zafira people carrier (2.0 litre petrol)

    2. Renault Espace people carrier (2.0 litre petrol)

    3. SEAT Alhambra people carrier (2.0 litre petrol)

    4. Jaguar X-Type estate (2.5 litre petrol)

    5. Peugeot 407 estate (2.2 litre petrol)

    6. Honda Accord estate (2.4 litre petrol)

    7. Ford Mondeo estate (2.0 litre petrol)

    8. Saab 9-3 estate (2.3 litre petrol)

    9. VW Passat saloon (1.8 litre petrol turbo tiptronic)

    10. Citroën C5 saloon (3.0 litre petrol)

    That bloke needs sorting big time. He's a threat to our freedom of choice...ultimately, our freedom.

    Every Londoner I speak to cannot stand the man, so how is he still in office? I know for certain he is not interested in fact, just what he percieves to be right - typical politician then I suppose.

    He cannot stand any form of transport other than buses, even went so far to say he would ban cars and lorries from London if he could. He is trying to via the back door. The amount of lorry operators giving up on London due to the Congestion charge and the incessant attention from traffic wardens is growing by the day.

    When the economy of London is on virtual collapse, or there are riots, or it becomes a virtual ghetto, perhaps he'll understand about listening to his public.

    Until then, London will get worse and worse. Just as an insight to what i am talking about, my current cost for parking tickets and Congestion charge this year, is approaching £22.000.

    Anyone else had the TFL leaflet on diesel vechicles through the letter box this week???

    if your diesel van/car isn't euro4 compliant then he wants to charge you 200 pounds per day to be within the m25... even if you live there!!!!!!

    if he gets his way it'll start in 2007...

    The man clearly has no concept of reality. Sad fact is, the public sleepwalk into this.

    All mine are Euro 3, so what do we do? Spend nearly what the vehicles are worth retrofitting particulate traps and catalytic convertors, replace the entire fleet with Euro 4 vehicles or just pull out of London as there's no point trying to go there to make money, putting 15 people out of work and related economy issues.

    Like I say, being ruined by an idiot. More to the point, we send troops to Iraq to rid them of a dictatorship, when will London have the same?
