There is no chance of this in Britian our Goverment would never remove VAT on fuel it is a massive earner for them. If anything our goverment would increase the tax, they are the biggest highway robbers in the world. Dick Turpin had nothing on this lot in goverment

Even today in the Sunday Times the MP,s want to increase their petrol allowances from the 40pence a mile they get now, due to the increases in fuel prices so I really can,t see them removing the Vat even for a short time.

And surely if we pay tax on every penny we spend on fuel then the more the base price rises, the more the treasury receives.They could at least agree not to add tax on top of any further price rises but I reckon they're just greedy.

The money doesn't go into their pockets you know (well, very little of it) - it does, however, go on propping up a poorly managed economy, an illegal war and a nuclear defence system that we don't need.

And paying off their seconds mortgages, fitting their houses with new kitchen's and employing their children and wives.

This is a publicity stunt given his ratings are at all time low. he'll surely blame the left for not letting his "big bright" idea through and try to score some brownie points with the voters.

Well they do have a track record of caving in over here.

Remember, we don't pay roadtax any more due to
the last big fuel hikes and subsequent strikes/blockades.

Plus, I thought the president was too busy with his Italian model wife to actually bother with running the country

Nah, Voters don't fall for just words over here.
They want action. Like cancelling all parking
tickets during an election year etc.
