More State Theft

Just when people are suffering enough, trust Labour to come up with another way to bum fcuk all those that now have to commute to get to work.

Motorists to pay £250 tax for parking at work

Motorists who drive to work face having to pay a £250 “parking tax” under a scheme to be announced by ministers on Friday.

The country’s first “workplace parking levy” will come into force in Nottingham in 2012 and is likely to be adopted by other councils.

Under the scheme, any firm with 11 or more staff parking spaces will be charged £250 a year for each. That cost could rise to £350 within two years.
Full Story

I suppose that all those that are on low incomes and only work 16 hours per week will get theirs paid for them by the local benefits office. Obviosly just another Tax to get in now so that the next Government are hobbled before they even start.

I are a cripple and I claim my rebate thank you very much. However it does actually say that its the firm that will be paying and to be honest can't see a firm being able to pass on that cost. I can just imagine the Chaos though in Nottingham as the QMC and Boots close their staff car parks and everyone trys to find parking :)

As one of the poor saps that will have to pay this tax i would love to go to work by public transport, but as I live more that 20 miles away, when I'm on morning shift I would have to leave home at the evening before.

I am not on a low income but when this bunch of a***hole have finish I will be

Confusing, on one hand it states that motorists will pay the £250 but then states that the firm will be charged £250 for each space. If the firm does get charged will they pass it on to the motorist/employee ? If the latter is the case will the employee get a dedicated parking space ? Works out at £4.81 a week roughly. Stupid idea and just another way for the gov to rob law abiding hard working citizens...easy targets again? :evil:

Can't see the likes of Tesco, M&S and all the other big out of town chains being able to pass it on to the work force. So it'll probably end up with Big Firms laying people off so as to be able to make saving's.

Par for the course with the Socialists! Robbing people under the guise of "trying to help the environment".
 
#7
What exactly is a “workplace” car parking space? If Tesco etc close the staff car park and have the employees park in the customers car park does that count? Does parking for the firm's vehicles count? Will the government, including the army, pay? How about parking at a TAC?

It looks like another, typically New Labour, half-baked policy to steal money.

Wouldn't be a bad idea IF the incompentent, imbecilic ass hats we ahve in power were able to sort out some efficient/clean public transportation!!!!

Or at the very least some safe cycle lanes.

So if this kicks in, does the management accept the responsibility for the protection of your vehicle at work :?
 
#10
No but the government will allow the police to do the square root of fcuk all to keep the area safe.
 
#11
By 2012 this government will be extinct and I would advise any politician, local or otherwise to steer well clear of this polciy if you dont want to join them on the dole queue.

It's okay everybody, with our reliable and inexpensive public transport system you won't need to drive to work. Our privatised railways aren't a gigantic clusterfuck; our buses aren't run by criminals, driven by morons and populated by saddos and wierdos; and our political leaders can be relied upon to ensure that this legislation is properly drafted and debated.

Wait, did I just write that?
 
#13
I think it is Nottingham city council that are starting this scheme, not national government. It has the backing of the government though, surprise surprise.

Jesus when will these dodgy taxations end?? people being charged cos they have a nice view from their front windows, now a levy on people who commute, what the fcuks next a fart tax?? Anybody exceeding 3 cubic meters of methane emissions a year will be charged depending on the stench and predicted damage to the environment due to their flatulence, this is getting beyond a joke, are they trying to totally take themselves out of the running in the next election???

'Jesus when will these dodgy taxations end??'

Don't forget the recently introduced 'Broadband Tax' of 50p a month on your phone bills (which will naturally double then treble once we have got used to paying it). And if anyone thinks that a penny of this tax will be spent on 'bringing broadband to remote areas' (as Gordon tells us), they need to have their bumps felt.

Aha - That would mean admitting there is something wrong with the current public transport though wouldn't it?

How many MP's get the 67 into work during the school rush? :roll:

No, Labour know that they're fecked for the 2010 general election, so they are making sure that the Tory's are hamstrung for the following 5 years so that the Mong nation will then vote Labour in 2015.

Whatever happens, the next government are lumbered with tax rises. A new party will have to try to regain some of the money that Labour have thrown out of the window and to clear some of the huge debt that they have put the country in. There's no two ways about it, tax & VAT rises will have to happen to get us back on track.

Labour will then sit as the opposition and heckle and lear at every move that the next government makes as if is the new party that has created the problem. The most annoying thing about it all is that the typical Laabour voter needs labour in power so that they can keep their public sector non-job or there benefits. They are also to stupid to realise, accept or even care about the countries finances and will believe that the tax rises are the new governments fault. Hey Presto, in 2015 the mong nation will put Labour back in power.

Hopefully companies will use their discretion in passing on the charge to employees. If you are able bodied and your workplace is accessible by a reasonable walk (say 1.5 miles), a reasonable cycle (3 miles) or good public transport links, then you should foot the car parking bill out of your own pocket. I would tax the school run as well, if there were an easy way of doing it. It is just too easy to hop into the car. The result is horrendous gridlock.
