Should Public Transport Be Funded By Motorists?

Sunday, 14. August 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

Have you heard of the Environmental Audit Committee? Me neither but they appear to be a group of nutty MP’s who probably drink soya milk and breed chickens. They certainly aren’t part of the real world as their report proves! They have this great idea that motorists should foot the bill for public transport. In turn this has outraged the Taxpayers’ Alliance (me neither) who have slammed the report. The nutty MP’s said in their report that fuel duty should subsidise bus and train fares. It also criticised tax cuts on petrol and diesel made by George Asbourne in his March 2011 budget.

They went on to say that ministers should not spend money on keeping ‘fuel prices artificially low.’ Matthew Sinclair, research director at the Taxpayers’ Alliance called the remark ‘infuriating.’

He added, ‘Government taxes keep fuel prices artificially high in the first place.’ He accused the committee of being ‘detached from reality’ suggesting that MP’s will never understand the burdens faced by motorists. What do you think? A good idea? By Graham Hill
