    I would point out out that it would be a 'delay' (conveniently until after the next election). The rise has not been scrapped.

    Brown is currently desperately buying off the electorate to try and win the election. (And many of the lemmings we have in this country are buying it)

    Ordinary people are not stupid They will rightly blame GB for the mess we're in, as he was warned what effective deregulation of the finance industry would lead to. Some other major European countries did not leave themselves as 'wide open' to the consequences of such a foolhardy policy as he did on our behalf.

    Yes, just a sop, to please the masses. With GB 'boom and bust' came back with a vengeance.

    My thoughts entirely, just trying to buy some popularity.

    The thing that pis^^^s me off is that when I bought my 1.8 petrol car... (hardly a US muscle car) I was'nt expecting my car tax to go up 120% in the 2 years I've owned it!!!!!

    I know we have to cut emissions but FFS lets get a fair system in place. if I drive 6,000 miles driving a car that emits 182g CO2 / per mile, have casued more pollution than someone driving 23,000 miles in a car emiting 145g C02 / per mile...... yet they will pay nearly £100 pound a year less than me.......

    I wish they would scrap the RFL and stick it on fuel, that way everybody pays it and it gets rid of the "untaxed cars" problem. The more you use the more you pay.

    Here Here totally agree with scrapping car tax. Putting it on the fuel is the fairest way, the more you drive the more you pay.
    That way all the big 4x4 pay more cos off their poor mpg, and the little diesels pay less.

    No government (current or next) would implement that, it's a far too fair & sensible idea.
