And let it not go unnoticed, other successful economies do not tax the motorist so heavily. Germany is 14th in the EU for taxing petrol drivers and 18th for diesel users, that’s over 10% lower than the UK. Spain is 23rd for both fuels and 12% lower than the UK. Virtually all countries tax diesel less than petrol too. So, any virtue signalling green tax hike on diesel does not hold water. EU countries see clean Euro 6 diesel as the commercial heartbeat of their economies and so tax it less. The UK should do the same, especially as weRead Whole Article

As we approach the first Budget from an unfettered Conservative Government, will Rishi Sunak be bullied to add to its 5th largest revenue stream? Rumours abound, that number 11’s £40bn+ cash cow may be engorged with an unanticipated and completely unwarranted 2p fuel duty hike. Boris Johnson’s pre-election promise to the Sun and FairFuelUK, that Fuel Duty will not be raised looks to have been scuppered by the unelected Dominic Cummings. A spectre that unpredictably grows darker each day over Boris’s promising sovereignty. When Quentin Willson and myself interviewed Boris Johnson in 2016 at his Vote Leave HQ, our currentRead Whole Article

Quentin Willson, Motoring Journalist, Broadcaster and Co-Founder of the FairFuelUK Campaign said: ‘Why are we spending £100bn on a 250 mph railway when our roads are congested, pock-marked ruins? To really lower carbon emissions spend the money on free-flowing roads, off shore wind, solar and EV charging hubs. There will be no electric revolution if we don’t have roads to travel on.’ Howard Cox, Co-Founder of the FairFuelUK Campaign said: ‘Today Cabinet Politicians have ignored economic reality and decided to screw motorists, van drivers and truckers, the very commercial heartbeat of UK PLC. It’s staring everyone in the face, freeingRead Whole Article

March 11th marks the first Budget of this massive majority driven administration. Will Fuel Duty be cut? SAJID Javid back in June 2019 vowed to freeze fuel duty for at least two more years – while launching Britain’s drive to ‘net-zero’ emissions. He said in his push to become Tory leader: “People drive because they don’t have other transport options, and they need to make a living, pick up the kids from school, and bring groceries back from the supermarket. Pre-empting criticism from the Treasury, a campaign source insisted the move wouldn’t ‘cost’ money – as it leaves more inRead Whole Article

The government’s attempt to meet its near-zero carbon target by bringing forward by five years its ban on petrol, diesel and hybrid cars is well‑intentioned. Yet it is doomed to backfire as badly as a Model T Ford.

DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) – The world needs an open dialogue about climate change to heal the gap between sceptics and believers since time is running out to cut the emissions that drive global warming, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday. “Time is pressing, so we – the older ones, I am 65 years old – must make sure that we take the impatience of young people positively and constructively,” Merkel told the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. The first two days of the annual Davos gathering were dominated by the back-and-forth between the 73-year-old former businessman Trump and 17-year-oldRead Whole Article

Dear Prime Minister, Chancellor and Transport Minister. On behalf of 1.7m supporters, I’d appreciate you read our evidence for significant investment into our crumbling roads infrastructure versus the huge investment in HS2. Our supporters were encouraged by FairFuelUK to vote for the Conservative Party in the G Election. Please see my comments, in the Sun article shown here, as a chosen expert on transport, published just before December 12. You can see what I said about Labour forming a Government and their detrimental impact on UK’s 37m drivers. Prime Minister, Chancellor and Transport Minister , please be mindful of whatRead Whole Article

Martin Hetzel, Medical Director of the Red Cross Hospital, Stuttgart – Germany said: “There is no such thing as a fine particulate disease of the lung or heart, and you don’t come across such a thing as nitrogen dioxide disease of lung or heart in hospital. They don’t exist. Fine particulate matter or NO2 hasn’t caused a single death. These are abstract mathematical models.” “It’s simply not plausible that such small concentrations of NO2 and fine particulate matter would cause the harm and death that are being publicized at the moment.” The Kloster Grafshaft Hospital, a former Benedictine Monastery usedRead Whole Article

Asked which of these two priorities the Government should focus on most of all, 45% of people said ‘reducing energy bills for households’ compared to 40% who preferred ‘stronger climate change targets’.
