Interesting Govt approach to law-breaking

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Reading the DFT's website today, I see (under the heading of "Making Roads Safer") that there's a plan to increase lorry speed limits. The argument given is "DfT statistics on monitored free-flow roads estimate that around 70% of HGVs currently travel over 40 mph and it is argued that these HGVs [who break the law] have an unfair competitive advantage over those who stick to the speed limit [sticking to the law]" [my comments and bold]

    If translated to match HMRC's approach to Google, Amazon, Starbuck's then maybe if enough of us avoid tax that rule will change too?
