They will always be tinkering with the system, bringing more and more into a higher tax bracket.And the 33% who do save will probably be doing well to save £10 per year, whereas the ones who pay more are going to get stung for ten times that amount.
It's good of them to give with one hand while taking with the other. It's just a shame that the taking hand seems to be able to hold so much more.
:iagree: It is a joke. They just want you to change but when they realise everyone will and they will start to lose money they change it again so you are even worse off. It is ok the saying they want people to switch to newer greener cars but what about those who depend on their transport but can't afford anywhere near that. They will be forcing them into debt!!:steam:They will always be tinkering with the system, bringing more and more into a higher tax bracket.
Look how they want to drop the exemption from the congestion charge for electric vehicles due to its massive uptake, I thought that was the whole point :crazy: :crazy:
Jeez oh some will have huge jumps, It will defo have an impact on some cars values that are 3 years old and entering the used market placemy lag dti 1.9 will be going up in 2010 by only £5.00 a year no price rise untill then so will I'm okay with that, might also help to keep the second hand value up slightly lol, but feel sorry for the other poor people with big rises.:d
I wonder why you said that Hondo? Just looked at yours, ouch. It jumps quite a bit for you doesn't it.
That's not good mate.
I know. Mine is on the old tax bracket, i.e. the one with two options, lol. Mine is £185 now, I think I read it is the same next year but goes up to £200 in 2010. They are stealthily putting the older brackets up, even more than the £5 every couple of years like they used too.:steam:Ouch I presumed Hondo's would have been the same as my Scenic II ?
You would have thought they would be the same as both have the same engine ?
And they said **** Turpin was a highway manI know. Mine is on the old tax bracket, i.e. the one with two options, lol. Mine is £185 now, I think I read it is the same next year but goes up to £200 in 2010.

Yep, just like my safrane. 2.5ltr yet because its registered in 1998, I pay less (which I obviously don't mind).Some of the older cars are big polluters, but I suppose it is easier to hit the newer reg cars.
Oh yes, that realy annoys me too. Just wish they could live like a normal person for once who can't claim their fuel and tax back on expenses. They might understand for once, they are sou out of touch it's frightening. :steam:And what really ticks me off is Brown and his cabinet are driven around in gas guzzling Range Rovers, Mercs and Beemers and they can claim the road licence back on expenses! :steam:
