    Government Petition to scrap retrospective car tax based on emissions - SIGN UP!!

    Here is the link...

    http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/UNFAIR-VED/


    This is what its about..

    Announced in the budget on 12/3/08 were increases in Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax). These announcements made scant reference to the fact that they were RETROSPECTIVE and affect all cars dating back to 2001.

    Owning an older car and keeping it running is FAR more environmentally friendly than scrapping it and manufacturing a new one, no matter how much more efficient then new car is. The manufacturing process creates huge amounts of CO2.

    Owners of older cars do not have choice - potential purchasers of new cars do.

    This will seriously damage the second hand car market and the leisure industry.

    Cancel the retrospective taxation NOW



    Sign up and tell your mates/family to do so. At least its doing something rather than us all being pissed off about it and doing nothing. It might make a difference, who knows

    ha in youir dreams will this do any good. Sorry but although I agree with some of you comments, owners of older cars do have a choice the same as newer ones! If you buy a range rover 12.8 turbo charged nature destroyer, you deserve to pay more - shed loads more! Same as porchase cayenne owners and the likes!

    I dont mind cos my diesel is only 70 for 6 months!!!
