bunch of tossers, innit.

Mind, the "lets not buy fuel" crowd have got it wrong: what's needed is for
a substantial part of the population to say "sod it", stay home for a week
and decline to go to work, at the same time not buying any fuel from
*anyone*.

but the chances of that happening are about as good as that of
Reichschancellor von Braun cutting the fuel tax...

fecking ridiculous, really, to tax fuel so high - and they wonder why
there's inflation, and people always wanting higher wages... increased fuel
costs affect the price of *everything*, a fact that Brown and his ilk must
be aware of and choose to ignore.

Hows about more tax on genuinely unnecessary things like more than one
colour telly, more than one video recorder...

Good idea! A tax on iPods - on the basis that I'm sick and tired
of everyone telling me I "need" one.

I think the argument goes... tax it till they stop using it. Solve global warming
@ a stroke?
What happened to the tax differential in favour of unleaded?
