Point of No Return…Beware of Greeks paying taxes!
Point of No Return…
Duckhouse Editor Julian Bray comments:
It seems cruel to predict the outcome of the General Election but the future for all of us (bankers and speculators excepted) isn’t looking good.
Massive cost reductions, in every sector of public service needs to be made; at the same time beleaguered manufacturing industry needs a shot in the arm.
Well, I have an idea and as you know by now, some of these suggestions are not only off the wall but require a sea change in conventional wisdom. My good friend Derek Grant - Rock Journalist turned foreign correspondent - now retired to Spain but fully up to speed with East Anglian news and politics (his Sky satellite TV profile was set up at his last known UK address!) tells me that he pays around 80p per litre for Petrol (Gasoline) whereas we in the UK pay around £1.25 per litre and Diesel (gasoil) even more!
My suggestion is for a cut in petrol duty to bring the UK in line with Spain and mainland Europe. This will impact on all trades and all sectors of manufacturing industry as every process, product or function requires an element of transport. It also ensures that we are on a even footing with mainland Europe and that transport operators will fill up this side of the channel rather than in France. It really is a no brainer and very easy to bring into operation.
It won’t happen of course anymore than including the cost of road tax in an annual car insurance policy ie no car tax disc no insurance and the insurance company collects the car tax at the time of insurance renewal – that’s a few thousand jobs I’ve cut at the DVLA which in Duckhouseland would vanish overnight, along with many other cash guzzling serially useless Quangos.
But back to the General Election, politicians already know the die is pretty well cast and for postal voters, many will have already voted except for one lady, Gillian Duffy unfairly branded ‘that woman’ and a ‘bigot’; by Gordon Brown. Brown effectively at that moment handed the election result to anyone else but him. His wife Sarah knows it and has had a face like a slapped fish ever since.
Do the voters really know (or even care) that the majority of elected MP’s making up the next Parliament will be newbies? This makes a nonsense of Gordon Browns’ claim that he has an experienced team in place to fight the battles of the future. Most of them will have taken their generous resettlement pay offs, sold off the flipped second home – maintained by the taxpayer – and ‘trousered’ the proceeds.
So let the games commence and by Friday, the victor the spoils, the largest poisoned chalice Gordon Brown could leave behind, unless of course by some miracle Gillian Duffy relents and urges The Daily Mail leadership to vote for Gordon… even Elvis would leave the building and more improbable, Greeks would begin paying taxes if that ever happened.
