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. From Brown’s first budget the cost of petrol and diesel has risen inexorably with the largest portion of the price of a litre of unleaded being tax; tax that we they pay VAT on!
Speed cameras spread like fleas on a hedgehog and quickly became a source of revenue, not a safety measure.
At the beginning of November the motorist and democracy were hit again when Brown changed the rules so that if you are found not guilty of a motoring offence you still have to pay the costs.
The chart from whatgas.com shows Labour’s poll rating against the price of a litre of unleaded, petrol was at it’s most expensive in July 2008, this is when the Conservatives had their biggest poll leads.
Several national newspapers have been predicting that unleaded will be £1.25 per litre at the time of the General Election.
Brown and Labour would do well to remember that 28 million of us own cars and we are fed up of being ripped off by Labour.
