A new tax-what a suprise!

The latest tax grab is here:

In principle, RUC's are a fairer system than the tax on petrol (a lot of us use petrol fro stationary engines & power tools, for one) Also, implementing RUC's for petrol vehicles will be dead easy as the infrastructure is already out there.

But who trusts them that will make the rules?

What's the bet this system will be loaded with 'envy taxes' punishing those with evil 4x4's and six+ cylinders?

And that it will cost you more than the current system...

It's the way you drive, Oswald...
Foot to the floor and half a dozen kegs of Monteith's in the back are not "economy mode".
