    Angry Fuel tax going up

    Just got an e-mail from petrolprices.com saying that the tax for fuel is going up.
    'Dear Mark,

    Having presided over the first bank run in the UK since 1866, Alistair Darling is now about to add an extra 2.35p tax to every litre of fuel sold in the UK. This tax hike comes into force at the start of next week, just as oil prices are at record highs and every motorist is already being punished.

    At PetrolPrices.com we want to help get motorists' voices heard and so we have prepared a vote. If you have an opinion about tax on fuel please vote and pass this email round to anyone you know who might want to vote as well.

    If they are not saving money already like you by using PetrolPrices.com please let them know about our site too.

    Here is my blog post and vote page:

    http://www.petrolprices.com/blog/we-cant-take-another-p-now-82.html
    Best regards,
    Brendan.'
    Anyone else heard about this or get anymore info on this???

    so getting to work is going to be more then. i like the people who say walk to work etc, well i would walk the 11 or so miles to work and uni everyday of the week i.e monday to sunday i would only have to set of at 5 in the morning and then probiby get home at 2 or 3 in the morning, not safe really then some of the roads dont have pavements so even more dangourous. i could get public transport some days and pay over £5 a day, but then if im working at night they wouldnt be any buses so would have to get a taxi, another £15-20 i think protests would be a good idea again

    Politicians don't give a shi*e about you or me! They know people will vote regardless.

    I'm not typing anymore because I'm getting angry just thinking about it

    As usual however the British public will tolerate it. We may moan but not one soul will protest.

    It's only to be expected. It will increase next year again anyway.

    As a population, we will do nothing about it, just **** and moan. Que the only thing I like about the frence, they stand up for what the believe in, Remember the farmers and truckers blocking ports abd burning sheep? They even all started putting super glue in the locks of wheel clamps, even if it wasn't their car..... No companies use clamps any more....... Grrrrrrrr
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Petrol Prices are ridilculous, It seems the government see this as an easy money making exercise. essentially it is a 'stealth' tax (although this 'stealth' tax is obvious!). Wouldn't be quite as bad if they actually used the money generated to pay for better roads infrastructure, but since 1975 income generated has risen by £24bn, while spending has dropped by £5.5bn !!!

    Some interesting facts/figures here:
