and the yanks are up in arms about the price of fuel!
the biggest problem is all this BS about global warming being used as an excuse to tax the people to death. a few years ago governments were talking about global COOLING causing a new ice age! if you have read 1984 you will see the point i am making
We are currently still in an ice age.
The sooner the incompetent government is voted out the better, the only area of competence appears to be in Gordon Browns abilities to raise tax but what they do with it all who knows?
To be replaced with? The current 'New' Labour regime is just a centre-right led party, continuing the work of the centre-right parties of the previous 2 decades. If you vote tory, then you'll continue that status quo.
No matter who you vote for, the rich will win, and the poor will lose. The average man will continue to be stuffed in the pocket, taxed to high heaven, and reap no reward.
have already emailed Cameron and pointed out how many car owning voters there are and got a reply going on about improving public transport so don't raise your hopes there either. Pity we can't have Angela Merkel as PM, she knows how to look after the motorist
Public transport funding is essential in order to keep this country from becoming gridlocked in uder 15 years.
We can't cope with the cars we currently have, and the number of them on the roads is increasing year on year.
The new regulations are going to give us bigger lorries (although not big enough to move that
much more freight, they will cause much more road damage than they already do, and will provide a bigger hazard on our small roads)
Our towns are overcrowded and getting worse, flats are being built everywhere, and no extra thought given to parking or road congestion.
Governments have pandered to road use for half a century now, whilst neglecting public transport. Our governments have always sought the cheap, short term solution, and left the compicated, expensive stuff for another day. That day never came.
Many european countries have struck much more of a balance, with future-led views and beliefs regarding transport systems. They've not shyed away from spending money or investigating new research. They're now reaping the rewards, whilst we're seeing the benefit of 50years of negligent rule.
