Basically as the subject says this is a petition to say no to the planned introduction next year on taxing us up to just over £400 a year on cars made from 2001 onwards. If you know of any other forums please post the link there, or email it around work, to get more people to sign up. At the moment this new high tax (based on emissions) only applies to brand new cars made this year but next year onwards it will apply to ALL cars from 2001 onwards. Some high powered cars (not just 4x4's) will be taxed over £400... so all not good, especially with one of the highest fuel prices in the world (although the cost of oil has indeed gone up and which we are led to believe is the reason for such high prices most of it is actually government tax!). The US pay five times less than us but yet the cost of oil is approximately the same to them.

Whats the point? If the Tories can't even touch Labour in the House of Commons when it comes to removing this stupid scam, then why do people think that Labour will take any notice of a stupid petition???
Its pretty simple really; vote Tory at the next election. Surely every fooker realised that by voting Labour in, you were all going to get your asses raped with regards tax???
It will NEVER be any different under a Labour government... its what they have always stood for.
