They've done everything they can to make driving as unpleasant as possible, including re phasing traffic lights in London to encourage congestion (yes, this was confirmed to me by the people involved with doing it), charging more than ever for fuel and throwing more of our money at public services.

And yet, 'New registrations in 2007 reached 2,404,007, with diesel-powered vehicles taking a record 40.2% share of the market, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said.'

And I am looking forward to getting my car soon, as I am so sick of relying on public transport which, outside central London, is monumentally useless.

Will the anti car fascists take any notice, or will they carry on trying to take every single last penny from motorists? The latter, I guess. The only thing to do is to not vote for anyone who thinks that you driving round in your car makes any great difference to climate change, and hurl bricks at anything in support of green taxes.
