Crying Car - ahhh
I'm getting pretty pissed off with the amount of emails I'm getting asking me to sign the Anti-Road Tax Petition so here's my stock response:
This petition is for those that think driving is a right, not a luxury. People who complain about paying tax rather than campaigning for their taxes to be spent for the benefit of all annoy me. Yes, the surveillance bit of this legislation bothers me, a lot. But why aren't these car huggers backing and promoting Anti ID Card campaigns with as much fervour? I actually want to see a reduction in cars on our roads, for lots of reasons other than just the excellent green argument.
2 million anti-war protesters on the streets of London get ignored but the car lobby makes the government go weak at the knees! Try campaigning for the bottomless pit of money allocated to the war machine to be put into creating a forward thinking 21st Century affordable public transport system instead, then I'll sign your petition.
- More tax on cars/fuel
- More tax on planes/air fuel
- More taxes to be spent on public transport
- Scrap this obsession with collecting data and monitoring people
