    Subject: New CarTax

    I was sent this by a client of mine.(plse pass it on)


    Radio 2 talked about the proposed Road Pricing car tax scheme on the
    radio. Apparently there is only one month left to register your
    objection to the 'Pay as you go' road tax.The petition is on the 10
    Downing St website but they didn't tellanybody about it. Therefore at
    the time of the comments only 250,000 people have signed it so far and
    750,000 signatures are required to stop them introducing it.Once you've
    given your details (you don't have to give your full address, just house
    number and postcode will do), they will send you an email with a link in
    it. Once you click on that link, you'll have signed the petition.

    The government's proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you Having
    to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to
    use it. The tracking device will cost about £200 and in a recent study
    by the BBC, the lowest monthly bill was £28 for a rural florist and £194
    for a delivery driver. A non working mother who used the car to take the
    kids to school paid £86 in one month.

    On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody
    will know where you are at all times. They will also know how fast you
    have been going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit in
    time you can probably expect a Notice of Intended Prosecution with your
    monthly bill.

    If you care about our freedom and stopping the constant bashing of the
    car driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website (link below)
    and pass this on to as many people as possible.

    Thats an aweful proposal, even for Blair. No way would I want them being able to track me wherever I go. I think they're trying to take our freedom away one bit at a time. First identity cards, now tracking? And why do they always expect us to pay for these things they're forcing on us?
