Road Tax Increase For 9 Million Drivers

Even though the Conservative Party has been in the news of late with regards to expense scandals and problems with the new Lord Mayor of London, it seems that Gordon Brown is always there to bail them out. News that 43% of drivers will suffer under the governments new road tax plans (9 million drivers in total!) and only 33% will benefit has again taken away much of the heat from the Conservative Party, with cries that the government has misled parliament to get the recent vote through.

Initially the government claimed that more drivers would benefit from the proposed changes, with only the most environmentally unfriendly cars set to lose out. Recent figures from the government have blown this claim out of the water with news that the Treasury is set to receive an extra £1 billion over the next 3 years.

At a time when motoring has never been more expensive, when public transport is still unreliable and when money has never been tighter for the UK population, the government has decided to introduce yet another stealth tax - all in the name of the environment, again. The Conservative Party will need to make some major blunders between now and the next election in 2010 to give the current government any chance of victory.
