    They may rule, but they're no elite.

    Two words, Stealth Tax.

    In my Opinion if the Government wants your money, they will take it. They just need to find a way to make it "just". If you take them to court you will most likely lose and they will get more money from you which puts people off fighting it. This to me is just like bullying. Nothing you can do either cough up your lunch money or go to prison.

    Thing is this government has got the country in the $hite. It needs money to "bail" us out. They are scrapping the barrel to find ideas where to get extra tax from. Seems to be the ordinary bloke off the street who Always has to foot the bill. If this government stopped wasting money and used it as wisely as we have to with our wages, then the country would have No financial problems.

    As usual this incompetant government has spent all our money ,giving it to spongers and scroungers so the working man that has to use his car for work has to pay out again as allways.

    I really dont think that we should get a £15 charge, even though the government say its not a victimless crime, yeah right where do u draw the line on that one, i tell ya once i get my pension i'm off.

    General election is 153 days away (or less if it's called early).
    Time to vote Labour OUT, the ones who have destroyed the UK economy through sheer incompetence.

    I would not object (realy) to pay this IF the "goverment" (term used loosly) used all the money raised in ALL taxes to the benifit of ALL the people of this country and refrained from handing out many BILLIONS to provide handouts to all and sundry all over the world. There is an old saying which should be imprinted on the "minds" (term used loosly) of our MPs and PM that goes "charity begins at home" not in some far flung nation in some outmoded cause.
