Well, here we are again and it is the time when the nice folk at Swansea send me a brown envelope demanding that i part ,once again, with a very large slice of my hard earned!!!
As we are all aware, it has risen dramatically over the last few years with the previous administration in Downing Street really taking the rise out of all with the ridiculous system the have put in place to tax us to the hilt. Hit the motorist, the Government 'Cash Cow' Easy pickings are we not.
Opened it up, as i had to, to find that another 'stealthy' Â£10 has been added to the total, making it now ,Â£270 per annum to keep my car, which is my choice of vehicle that i desire to own, on the road.
Yes, there are some that will say, big car don't moan etc etc. As stated my choice. The government want all to be 'Green' running round in little tin boxes that do 1000 miles to the gallon etc. Run on electricity? Great if you like that sort of thing. and have a long extension lead!!!!
Do you see Mr Cameron, or any of his 'cronies' for that matter riding around in a Prius? The answer to that is no. A Jag will do nicely i think.
So, i will now have to go to the DVLA web site, press all the buttons and tick the right boxes and last but not least .........PUT IN MY CARD DETAILS!!!!!!!!!!
Hmmmm. An extra Â£10, wonder which pot hole i can claim along with the 260 that i am already responsible for!!
Rant over and a much lighter wallet to boot!!!
