The Govt are supposed to looking after the interest of the public, help those in need not charging them more to spread the cost.
I think we are in agreement, just maybe a slight miss understanding about what we are talking about when we say less. However I would have to say that whilst it may not be the step you wanted, in the end they are coming up with ways of making it more afordable 5% drop in the price of anything is still a drop, as well as being able to spread the costs monthly rather than every 6 to 12 months.
like I say, I'm not saying I agree with the statement of paying more so you can make things more affordable, but whatever way you spin this, in the end it is less than and available in an even more manageable way than it was before.
It's a matter of perspective, if you were living at or just below, or just above the poverty line, you'd feel differently, and unfortunately, they're always the ones to feel the pinch first. So many of the youthes feel they lave little or nothing to lose, so crime can escalate, along with resentment and so on, but I'm getting off topic.
Very true, don't think because of the company car that the cost of these things are no worries to me, I've gone from a 2 car to a 1 car family because of the costs of certain things and the cost of £190 of Car tax for a 1.6 petrol Peugot 307 is one of those things. I'm also not asking for sympathy with that statement, I am still privilaged enough to not count myself as unfortunately for the people you were referring to.
