Our rookie Chancellor has listened to common sense and frozen Fuel Duty for an unparalleled 10th consecutive Budget since George Osborne’s instinctive one penny cut in 2011. Rishi is hailed with a huge sigh of relief, by our 1.7m supporters, motorists, motorcyclists, van drivers and the commercial heartbeat of our economy, hauliers. His decision has been pressured by the ‘keep duty frozen’ letters, orchestrated by the indefatigable Robert Halfon MP and Esther McVey MP signed in total by 53 backbench Tory MPs. Our research showed that 2 out of 3 Tory voters in the red wall seats would take backRead Whole Article

With Budget 2020 upon us on March 11, it’s clear the Fledgling Chancellor has his hands full with the financial hit caused by Corona Virus and the macho oil supply spat between Russia and Saudi Arabia. He has to be cognisant that this week’s oil price crash is not benefitting drivers as yet. On the day oil fell 35% since March 3, and wholesale fuel prices dropped by 7 to 8 pence bizarrely average pump prices went up between 0.4p and 0.9p per litre. An even more shockingly, when oil was at this sterling level in March 2016, pump prices wereRead Whole Article

In a Survey of on-line FairFuelUK Supporters between 21-25 Feb, small businesses, self employed drivers, pensioners and the employed explained how a Fuel Duty Hike will impact on them “The crass annual fuel duty turmoil could be halted for good. Any levy hike on the world’s highest taxed drivers, impacts brutally on small businesses with no choice to push Boris’s tax grab treachery onto their customers. Pensioners too, say they will see less of their families whilst having to cut back on keeping warm. The narrow-minded Treasury knows full well, lower fuel tax generates jobs, reduces inflation, adds more GDPRead Whole Article

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

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
