First Budget con trick revealed
Car drivers clobbered!
Many thanks to The Tax Payers Alliance who have put together a database of car makes and models, current and future bands, and how much extra you can expect to pay for your Road Tax. How revealing it is, just as you were expecting the rich and the ostentatious to pay the environmental charge levied by Darling, we now find out that it’s not just the drivers of huge 4 X 4 Chelsea tractors and gas guzzlers who will suffer. 89% of motorists will face an increase of up to £100 per annum, whilst only 9% can be expected to save, and even then the most they will save is £25.00.
Living in South Shields you see lots of humble Nissan Micras running about on their clean efficient 1200cc engines, it is not surprising as they are built just six miles away in Washington, or that hundreds of South Shields men and women work for Nissan. You would expect this functional little model to be one that might find favour, but heck no! Micra drivers on the whole will face tax increases too, as much as an additional £40.00 per annum.
The Chancellor said he was;
“Cutting taxes for those who cut carbon emissions.”
he didn’t say that it only amounts to 9% of drivers, or that the most they might save is only £25.00!
