    Default Government to charge £250 for parking at work.

    I see our fantastic government intends to charge everyone who drives to work and uses company parking a wee £250 for the priviledge.

    Sounds reasonable.

    Thats what I like about this government, new, brilliant, dynamic idea's every day, in fact I lie awake at night with excitment unable to wait till next morning to see what new idea or legislation they are introducing.

    Absolutely pathetic..

    I wonder how long it will be before someone suggests they charge extra if you have parking spaces at home.?

    Yet another Stupid idea from the Government "think" tank. If you work shifts you might not have an alternative method to get to work. So you will have to use your car. If this Government got to grips with all the "wasted" money, and use what they have got more wisely, they would not have to come up with stupid ideas like this to bring in more coffers. Strange how they always have a go at the "easy target" motorist.

    So it's not enough that the driver already pays:

    - A sales TAX when purchasing a car
    - TAX to enable you to use the road
    - Then you have to insure your car which includes an insurance premium TAX!
    - Then you need to get it MOT's to make sure that it is safe which includes paying VAT which is more TAX.
    - Then to actually use your car the goverment charges a fuel duty TAX on the petrol that you buy and then adds VAT on top of that which is more TAX
    - Then because the roads are becoming congested the goverment decided that some busy roads should have a toll which is more TAX
    - and now because we use our car to go to work to earn money which is TAXED!!!!! we should be charged another £250 TAX to park our car!!!!!!!!!!???

    (****ng *******!!!!!!!)

    how do they actually expect in enforce this with the number of company car parks out there?

    Plus if you live in a city you are expected to pay to park outside your house and pay again to park at work??

    How about when you go to the toilet, they should start charging toilet roll taxed which is based on how many times you wipe your **** !!
