Labour Hammers The Motorist Again
By Tory Aardvark
Two things that Labour hate: The Motorist and fair and balanced laws.
During the years since 1997 the motorist, all 28 million of us have been used as a cash cow for Gordon Brown’s profligate spending with the ever increasing cost of fuel, speed and traffic cameras and Green Tax lies to try and extort still more money from the motoring public.
Today is truly a red letter day for Labour they have found a new way to cost the motorist more money and damage democratic law all in one go.
From today if you are found not guilty of a motoring offence you will still have to pay the costs.
So even if innocent you have to be able to afford to pay the costs, frivolous prosecutions can be brought as they dont cost the police or the government anything, more people will plead guilty which brings in more money for the government.
According to the Ministry of Justice, the age old principle of ‘the loser pays’ has been costing the government too much money.
