    Default The government should argue THEIR case, imho

    sorry, yours was a handy post to hang mine. forgive me. I know there will need to be "special pleading" but i don't agree that should have to be.

    In days gone by, the government had to plead to impose a tax inparliament. That was only 200 years ago, and only as a temporary measure. Nowadays it's the other way around. I don't think it should be so.

    The governemnt/eu case to raise the tax is pathetic. It's cos that country over there raises the tax (although only those in the eu) . This is about as rubbish an argument as aking for a pay rise cos other people in your local pub seem to earn a bit more money (even tho admittedly you're already earning more than almost all others in all the other pubs).

    Default Re: \"Special Pleading\" for red diesel

    oh, all very smooth now. We think it was a blocked pipe, not so much the injector itself. Also erm, i discovered after four years that the engine hatch didn't shut properly so er fixed it and the noise levels much reduced, ahem.

    I am gonna feel a bit foreign aren't I? Shall i bring a passport?
