Fuel duty to rise from midnight

#1
A two pence rise in fuel duty will come into effect from midnight, the third increase in nine months.

Stephen Glaister, director of road users pressure group RAC Foundation, told the BBC the government's latest rise "will hit everybody hard".

Another financial masterstroke by our one eyed leader. Put up the price of fuel (and therefore everything else) during a recession.

You could cycle. Greener, cheaper but less menacing. Get one of those tandems, the prozzie will think it is kinky, then you cycle off some where quiet and do the deed, so to speak.

Get some panniers for the tools of your craft, also it is easier to dunk in some domestos and lemon juice to remove "forensic residue".

Basteds! Still, on the bright side, it makes it a little more expensive to make petrol bombs.

Now that I have a gun to my head...ow! I say of my own free will that this is a brilliant idea that will stimulate the economy and allow the less fortunate to get more free money to pay for their special brew and have more time to go out and victimise the rest of society who have to pay their own way.... *BANG*

Economic madness, reduces disposable income (Already stretched), increases prices, meaning less consumer spending, meaning more unemployment as companies go to the wall, meaning less tax income and more tax outgoings.

But does anyone see the tories reducing fuel duty?

ps. Is VAT on fuel duty illegal btw? I thought a tax on a tax was illegal?

Given that, technically, consumers don't pay excise duty on fuels, there is no double taxation. So to answer your question TCM, VAT on purchases of road fuels is perfectly legal.

Look out Vamp the Fingermen have just pulled up outside your house....


oh, bugger.

I wouldn't mind if this bunch of brain donors, we call a government spent the money raised on such outlandish ideas as greener and more efficient public transport and services.

By efficient I mean improved access and more often, not "we'll keep the revenue makers and shut the rest down".

Likewise it would be nice to hear the clippety clop of horses drawing bin carts, milk and shop deliveries to peoples homes. Whilst electric trams glide around the cities, and pink bear suited scum scrub walls and prise chewing gum from the roads....

ahh... Utopia.

Another squeeze on the whole country then.
Fuel has already sneaked up 2 pence a lire in the last few weeks so Mr Brown helps that up another 2 pence.

Clueless fooking moron. Anyone with half a brain should be able to figure out tha the whole country needs every penny they can get without being mugged by the taxman more

Perhaps if we stopped throwing money at other foreign nations and concentrated on ourselves too we would pull ourselves out of this bloody recession, stop forcing green technology upon the entire nation (which is outrageously expensive) during a recession, stop pissing money up against the wall with pointless quangos and massive local council wastage along with the curent government wastage.

Crap, that black car has pulled up outside again.

I get sick fed up of ********* going on about single mothers as if they are the sole reason this country is so shit. Yeah, there may be some who spread them for the benefits, but many are single mums through no fault of their own.

My wife was a single mum when I met her - only because she'd left the guy who was beating the shit out of her every second night. A lot of single mums are the result of piece-of-shit cowards who take out their inadequacies on their wives.

I dare say there's quite a few single mums as a direct result of the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq.

That's a pretty big brush you're waving about to tar people with.

If petrol was sat at £1.05 per litre the breakdown is as follows:

True Fuel Cost 40.95p

Fuel Tax Cost 50.35p

VAT Cost 13.70p

Total Tax Cost 64.05p

Total Tax Rate 156.38%

At this price a household bringing in £30000 per annum with 1 car averaging 12K per year at 40mpg will be paying the additional equivalent income tax of 2.91% or in monetary terms £873.47 in fuel tax.

An interesting fuel calculator is here to see how much money HMG is ripping the electorate off.

How can you try to equate some free loading chavette with her snotty, puking and mewling brood,with a widow of a serviceman KIA?

The link is 2 years old,but I doubt much has changed.

You're a pot noodle dad then :D

Nope, my mum was a single mum too. And I know a few others who are SMs through no fault of their own. Alas there are huge numbers of feckless girls who are. It is even seen as a career in some areas.

But you are also right, the men in their lives are often cowards who run from their responsiblilties, or they like to take out their frustrations on their better halves.

Vamp, the green wagon is often NOT the most expensive way. However using economics you can dress up any exploit up to be more expensive or less expensive depending what you want to do with the data.

Much green technology at the moment is getting smashed as expensive due to "R&D" costs in the main. But if we added a CO2 tax (for example) you'd probably find a lot of green initives become viable.

Straight off if you produce your own electric and are connected to the grid, the power companies of UK will purchase your excess at a lower rate than they make you pay for their power when you need it. Because you produe your own power, you are always in the higher cost bracket, as you don't import that much. A complex system of two meters is used to allow this.

Go to Germany however, or America and you see the same meter going backwards, in other words, in other words the company purchases power as a one for one, or perhaps even acts as a storage for your unused power.

The UK system essentially makes it quite uneconomic to use CHP in your house.

I'm very cynical of green policys, I view them as a way of having some old socialist to have his final chance at trying to bring everyone down to the same bloody level. It would be nice to have all solar and wind power but the cost seems to outweigh the benefit of having all this technology, and with the world economy and of course our own in it's current state it seems to be madness to push on spending and spending.

Much green technology at the moment is getting smashed as expensive due to "R&D" costs in the main. But if we added a CO2 tax (for example) you'd probably find a lot of green initives become viable.
But again these incentives and initiatives come from the tax payers pocket and on the flip side people are starting to find theirselves punished financially for not going green. I like to view myself as a sensible person when it comes to energy, if I'm not using something I turn it off. I don't need some government initiative to come along and push it's views onto me!

I suppose it's one way for HMG to claw back the millions it forked out getting us to trade in our old bangers for £2K off the price of a new eco friendly motor...
