Cheers from the Conservative benches as the Chancellor announces he is completely scrapping the 3p rise in fuel duty planned for January. Some good news for motorists at last
Thundery wintry showers
I think the fare increases on public transport are getting out of hand, but I don't agree with the bitterness against motorists for not getting the 3p rise. High fuel duty and lack of alternative fuels squeezes motorists on low income and also pushes bus running costs up, leading to higher fares...
Yeah I also walk 20 mins up the hill with my shopping while at uni like now, and don't have a car here, but at home in Devon we need cars of course
Ditto reef, sometimes I finish work at midnight and even though I live in London travel by any other means than a car is impractical. Also the rising fuel costs has a direct effect on shopping bills, afterall, how do you get food on to the supermarket.
