    Well, well! Haven't heard anything about this yet........however, nothing suprises me:Angry:

    It seems like this government will stop at nothing to screw as much money as possible out of us all, motorists or anyone driving any motor vehicle............we're all doomed methinks!:Blush:

    The poor motorist is always an easy target:Angry:

    The latest idea floated by our politicians and police in Scotland, appears to be the notion of rolling out "breakfast" road blocks for breathalyzing motorists as they make their way to work and wherever else they're on their way to:Angry:

    Everyone driving a motor vehicle is presumed to be guilty of being over the limit until the police can prove otherwise. Don't get me wrong, there is no case for drinking and driving, but shouldn't people be allowed to go about their business without this heavy-handed measure?

    This is if it gets through the Scottish Parliament.

    Rant over:Angry:

    Morning.. sorry, but I disagree..

    yes they should.. but the law abiding motorist also has rights.. .. the right to drive without fear of a drunk hitting and perhaps killing them..

    I welcome any measure that can cut down the number of alcohol related accidents.

    When dealing with politicians you can never be too cynical.

    A local policewoman has just been in the paper she turned up for work after a night out and someone noticed she looked a bit hungover so before she could drive off one of the other coppers gave her the blow into this routine result one lost job and a driving ban and a big fine this was a night before few drinks.So yes stop me when you like if it saves someones life, the only thing I would say is why do the same people keep getting caught time and time again ? Maybe they are to soft on them

    I did read a few days ago that the intent seems to be on certain types of vehicles.

    Caravans and motorhomes that are made in the Euro zone are going to have a one off payment levied on them, like the Bankers tax. As we all know these luxury vehicles are the toys of the wealthy.

    Once this payment has been made, you will get an exemption certificate to prove that the levy has been paid and it will allow you to sell the Caravan/motorhome. You won't be allowed onto camp sites without the exemption certificate.

    The Spanish did some thing different a while back with Marinas :Angry: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...ing-in-Spain-face-massive-taxes-on-boats.html

    This will not apply to caravans and motorhomes built outside the Eurozone so all of us with American RV's will be fine. The have been made exempt because of the clean green credentials and the fact that they're normally driven by extremely decent chaps and chap'ess's

    By now you'll realise that I have made this up to cheer us all up waiting for the sun to return. My defence? this is Motorhome FUN!:thumb:

    Having Met Edwina I quite like her..
    She may not come across as a people person but what she did for local communities in Norfolk ( and almost always out of site of the press ) made her one politician who will always get my vote :thumb:

    with the police it has allays been guilty until proved innocent
    my home went up in flames a few years ago
    the police arrested me and accused me of setting my home on fire to defraud the insurance company

    locked in a cell for 12 hours then 5 hours recorded interview all very stressful then a seven week investigation only to say "we can not prove you did it" may be because i was not involved in do such a thing
    they could not pin it on me

    they are a law unto them selves in this country

    I for one do not trust the police

    As with many others, this thread has lost its way.
    One thing is for certain: if the current clowns "re evaluate" tax etc., it will go up. No point spending money to lower it?
    Wait and see.
