    By the time we are all driving electric cars, we probably won't need roads ::bigsmile:

    like all other secondary taxes, it all goes in a pot to bail out the failing health and teachings services so they will callapse as well.
    oh, and the pension pots for our governers.

    Seriously, I can't figure it out. Perhaps you guys will have the answer.
    Ok, If I had an electric car and I needed to go to my folks who live 500kms in London. Just say there are electric charge points every 10 kms apart. How long will it take me to get there. Question is, If I need to charge up, do I sit there hours on end for each and every charge? How far one fully charges battery take and then how long to I hang around to get my battery fully charged to continue my journey. HELP.:Eeek::RollEyes::Doh:

    come on lets be real about this

    you get taxed before you even receive your wages

    you are then taxed again when you buy certain foods clothing etc

    Then theres the council tax which is being taxed a 3rd time

    Just look at when and where you are taxed

    No doubt they will bring in either new taxes or find some other way of robbing hard working people of the little wages they earn just so they can claim it all back in expenses on the MP expenses fund
