When i was younger the only reason anyone watched the budget was to see if fags, beer and road tax was going up . Now unless those subjects make headlines such as price /tax cuts they are never mentioned. However its now clear that its gonna cost 10.1 percent more to tax your vehicle if it needs taxing , as in as last years budget it is hidden away inthe small print . So for me with three vehicles that need to be taxed in the household, the headlines of the 5p fuel discount remaining( that we never got at the pump ) means zilch to me and millions of others if not everyone as any savings plus more will go on the taxing of the cars etc . Idont know how the politicians can sleep at night for thinking of lowdown sneaky ways to lie ,con and cheat us . Meanwhile France riot as the pension age is raised to 64. For once i think France can teach us something about how to treat those in power corrupting the people.
