Tax war on our cars

Road tax up £60 since last year and another 10% increase in line for April, the highway robbers don't even bother to say why now.

I suppose it’s a drop in the ocean when owning cars like these, however yes it would be great to actually see what it’s being spent on, probably temporary traffic lights somewhere…

My road tax doubled when I bought the M5 so I’m already in the thick of it.

Thankfull for 20% pay increase just before Xmas.

At least we don't live in Ireland! It's about £3k over there.

PM is expected to reduce taxes before 'that date', chances are he'll conveniently (as usual like the others) forget road and fuel tax in spite of having said already that he'll end the war on motorists.

Don't expect any change today from a certain 'budget'.
Well there we have it, another kick in the teeth for motorists with a wall of silence concerning road tax instead freezing fuel 'duty', wowie.. lets pop the corks for that one
