Road Lurks Ahead

Although privatisation of the railway system failed to keep the promise of cheaper fares, motorists will no longer need to buy a rail ticket just to be ripped off for much longer because the next move in the great Tory ideologically culture is on track to privatise their roads as well...

This of course would seem like a good train of thought for owners of older vehicles because if they keep a car on a private road, they will not be obliged to pay for road fund licences, insurance policies, MOT tests, driving licenses  or any other outlay that doesn’t actually improve the performances of their (t)rusty steeds.   Where else could drivers on a ban drink and drive legally anyway ?

I would never drink and drive myself; not even coffee…  It goes all down me and coffee only keeps me awake at the wheel anyway…  Not being bound to the speed limit would appeal though..

On a more serious note of course, one quick set of laws will soon sort out the “Thou shall not remove our ammoniated water on a private road either,” loopholes.   Adding no doubt to around three million laws to enforce the ten commandments with still enough loopholes to keep barristers in luxury while they can all buy themselves a chunk of motorway with the windfalls as well now...

What does it mean to the average non road user?   You may well ask…
Well it means the same as it did when vat rose to 20%.   Higher fuel bill to deliver their groceries smartly handed down with their fish fingers and anything else exempt from VAT; yeah right…
