Nearly half of Tory-voting drivers vow to ditch the party if fuel prices are raised and believe the Treasury will use Corona Virus issue to raise Fuel Duty in Budget 2020
NEARLY half of Tory-voting motorists said they would ditch the party at the next election if the Chancellor hikes fuel duty in his Budget 2020. A survey by the FairFuelUK campaign between 2nd – 5th March 2020 (summary below) found only a quarter of motorists who backed the Tories in December would do so again if Rishi Sunak ends the decade-long fuel duty freeze. And three in ten motorists who backed the Tories at the election said they would “reluctantly” vote for the party again if fuel duty is hiked.

Is Boris to break his Pre-Election Promise and now increase Fuel Duty in the Budget 2020 ?

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
The HS2 Hypocrisy, some say betrayal of road users and FairFuelUK’s support for the Conservatives to be re-elected may have been misplaced
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
