Go Up Go Down

back in 2012 my petrol 4x4 died and due to ill health I have been all but house bound for a while, well as some of you know I just bought a diesel 4x4 5 weeks ago, so I thought life would improve and I would be able to get out and about,

Anyways the greenies have got the bleeding hearts party making plans to introduce a new Dirty Fuel Tax which will becoming out shortly where anyone with a Diesel over 10 years old will have to pay £20.00 per day / $33.00 per day to drive it, I am already paying £295.00 / $486.75 for REGO and there is no SGIO over here so my insurance is costing me $1254.00 per year and any person that goes in to the city and parks their diesel will have to pay £7.50 / $12.38c per hour to Park

So Just to drive/Own a Diesel here it will end up costing me the following Per Year.

Rego $486.75 AUD                       $370.23cUSD
INS $1254.00  AUD                      $933.80cUSD
Driving tax $8580.00 AUD             $6526.00USD
Road worthy $99.00 AUD              $75.30cUSD

Grand Total $10,419.00cAUD,,,OR  $7905.33c USD

That is without parking charges, Now I am already paying $9.52 per Gallon or $2.09c per Litre for Diesel, Where as the PIA's who are making this stuff up get FREE cars/Transport and Free Fuel and they are on about $300.000 to $500.000 per year and they get Free Homes and Free Building maintenance which covers anything from a cracked window to about $300k etc etc. So they don't feel it like the common man does, They Put the Beer up years ago so I stopped going to the Pub, and a Packet of 20 Smokes now costs $17.82c, which I also stopped buying years ago because my wages never matched the price increases, At one time Diesel was costing $2.72c per litre,

These B*****ds are really taking the Pi$$ now, and it's just not funny anymore

  What is REGO ?  

Driving tax $8580.00 AUD   What is that about ?   Is that some stupid London thing?

All I had to deal with when I was there was ; Fuel way over the top in price .  MOT and Insurance. 

Your Television Tax Got Right Up my Nose. 




 Yes the INSANITY Marches on her too.  No quite that bad here YET !

REGO is the car Tax / Road fund Licence that you had to pay to get that little round Disc that you had to put on your windshield when you were here, The MOT/Road worthy is about £60.00 now that's about $75 bucks USD.

    Welcome to the wonderful thing called SOCIALISM !  Sounds like your lot is working on going FULL BLOWN Socialist.   Angry  v 

When I was there I just bought a new $500 Banger every year.  They would never pass the MOT if retested .  The ones I had were most likely Booted MOT. You know how that works.  As for the Road Tax I never dealt with it .  They did have a Round Disc sticker but that was the MOT sticker I thought.  Emmmm   

Our Road Tax is included in the Fuel Cost.  As high as you guys fuel is I would thing yours would be too.
