    Default fuel tax gordon

    i heard with interest that gordon has had to borow heavily and will not do anything prior to election but you can bet as soon as, if , he is elected then watch out.
    previous goverments have had to borrow on a large scale and then repay by taxing you and me.
    he will be desperate to claw back from anything.
    this is not intended to be a political jibe just a worried boater.
    oh, and by the way. i think we are still bettter off with the present lot.

    Don't reelect them. Over the next few months the Conservatives will make promises and be wanting to make them. Exploit this.

    I'm deeply worried about the prosepect of another Blair/Brown (and then Brown) government. If Brown has got his sums that wrong, given his addiction to taxes, we are all in a hole as he will scrape for revenue foprm anywhere. Hello £100 pa SSR, £85 identity card (+£15 marine endorsement), crewing ticket, helming ticket, navigation ticket and skippering ticket (all @ £200 pa each, boaters are wealthy) plus qualification charge and so forth.

    Only, I fear, slightly doom mongering. After all, unless we are tracked and watched we might bring in bad people, you know, not Labour voters...
    Two beers please, my friend is paying.

    Agree, Gordon is a master tax collecter
    In addition to your suggestions he will surely consider
    how to tax the increase in property prices occuring
    in certain areas.
    I just heard a "factoid" on the radio, in 1998
    he paid £130 for a haircut! unbelievable!
