Fuel Duty – NOT THAT WAY!

Perusing through my twitter timeline earlier I spotted a news story that basically says the fight for lower and fairer fuel duty is going about as well as ever.


Despite defeating Commie Corbyn in the time that’s elapsed since I last posted on this place, and the Conservatives this website was originally set up to support from the grassroots won big style, you may have noticed there was enough frustration with the way the party was heading as it was without this crap.

When I got up today I saw in the news they were dusting off and toying with the stupid idea of bringing forward plans to ditch proper cars that actually work with stupid useless electric things so terrible they make even that old socialist sh*tbox the Trabant look partially decent.
