Stand and Deliver!

Well this seems like highway robbery so I thought it worthy of a suitable title.

When VAT was temporarily reduced to 15%, the Chancellor added 2% duty to fuel to offset the reduction in tax collected from motorists. Now that VAT has been increased to 17.5% again this hidden tax has not been removed - hence recent rises in your fuel costs. Sign the petition at the link below to have this stealth tax removed!

Please pass this on to your friends - the more the merrier. Happy motoring!

So Gordon and his Robber is at it again. It appears that even though we are being told to cut back the government cant or wont. Their incompetence means that running a hot dog stall is to much for the boys in the ivory castle so they sneakily add taxes while making it look like they are giving you something. Gordon and his henchmen seem to be reverse Robin hoods robbing from the poor and keeping it all for themselves.

We put up with it we deserve them!

Its the colossal waste and mis management in local government which drives me mad - dont get me started. I really should start a blog devoted to the inadequecies of Birmingham Council but it would be to depressing to write.
