Vehicle Excise Duty... PT2
The current problems began when Mrs Thatcher and the scumball Conservative government came along and apparently saved us all from bankruptcy. Well, I'm sorry but the bankruptcy would've been better than selling all of our hard work into the private sector on the cheap where it has been steadily destroyed over the past few decades through greed for ever increasing profit at the expense of serving their new customers, US! We no longer have massive departments of men and women out 'on the tools' physically building stuff. This has been replaced by private companies with massively over-paid individuals standing around scratching their heads whilst collecting their wages. Construction has been massively simplified over the years and there is now a technique and tool for virtually every job that saves labour and saves time. Are we seeing a cost saving??? Not a chance, the owners are buying up property and land left right and centre so, er, we can't buy houses or land either unless we pay a massive premium. It's not that there is a lack of anything in this country it's just that a select few own it all!
Apparently the Conservatives are in with a chance of getting back in... Let's hope not or they will privatise what little we have left in public ownership. The local councils are already almost privatised with the way in which they treat the public, heaven help us if the Conservatives actually complete the deal!
So... We're to get increases in Vehicle Excise Duty... What's this based on? Are we paying to repair the roads that we have been paying to have NOT repaired for the past few decades? Have the same motorcycles suddenly became heavier and hence cause more damage to the roads? Are there LESS motorcycles on the road than last year and hence fewer motorcyclists must pay an increased premium in order to cover the shortfall?
Times were good a couple of years back. The government were raking in the cash! Where are the savings accounts for a rainy day? They sure didn’t go to those big bad bankers as the government BORROWED the cash to sort them out. They borrowed this money with US as the collateral! They nailed another nail into the cross for us and future generations. Heaven knows HOW or WHY they are allowed to do this but apparently it was in our best interests that PRIVATE COMMERCIAL banks were bailed out to the sum of BILLIONS of pounds… They’re going to pay it back though, by robbing US of yet more hard earned slave labour money……
Okay. So… In order to up the coffers for the repair of the roads that we are already paying for but the money is being spent elsewhere they now need to charge a little more. Sounds okay as the increase isn’t too bad but why the hell can they not just be bloody honest? Rather than use ‘environmental’ bollocks why can’t they just come clean and state to the majority who don’t understand the ‘VED rip-off’ that the money paid out for using a vehicle on the road doesn’t actually go towards the road but instead fuels the great gravy train through private banks, out into Europe and then full circle round the earth via pointless warships and crazy wars.
The moan should not be about the INCREASE in Vehicle Excise Duty but more focused towards WHY the government continue to unnecessarily WASTE their current income from the VED tax. Why don’t they simply dock/scrap the warships, bring the troops home from the unlawful wars, pull out of the European Union craziness. Just a few examples of what the priorities should be! Simply increasing the tax burden of the long suffering general public doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me but then I am a nonsensical kinda guy…
Other solution is to allow the private banks to crash… Just a thought… Politicians are all in their pockets though eh?
