Doubt you'd find it on most mainstream news sites mate; not exactly of interest to most Joe Public types is it?

Me and my better half both sighned. Robbing twats....... Tell us to reduce our emitions, then tax us for doing so, bike I'm currently on uses feck all fuel, ergo cannot be emmitting a lot of co2 and never contributes to congestion ergo a genuinely ecological government would be offering me the tax cuts, not the new cars who's emitions are higher and being new have caused a fair few emitions in their creation

Oh ffs what are you lot like?

Don't any of you remember this from the last time it came around, or the time before that?

This is NOT going to happen. Somebody did their sums wrong or read the budget report wrong and started a whoile load of fuss about nothing. There are NO plans tro double road tax on a 125cc bike. The increase to 33 is for the next class up, bikes up to 400cc, which is currently I think at 31. 125 and under stay at 15 or may possibly increase at the rate of inflation.

Jesus, sometimes I despair..........

*walks away from thread shaking head sadly*

Well, sorry for trying to do the right thing. I suppose if there ever is a large increase in tax for bikes, you won't be complaining?

Better to try to do something, even if the threat isn't that likely than ignore a potentially real threat, surely?

Better still to spend less than 30 seconds on google to check the background to the story (like I did, the FIRST time the petition was posted on here) than take something as gospel just cos someone else says so and look like an ignorant sheep by following blindly though, and save your energy for campaigning against the REAL issues?

Funny that, I did ask if there was a link to back this claim up but no one noticed.

Some ppl want spoon feeding.

Just for those who don't have elephantine memories like me (and no comments about my matching arse size please! ) here's the last time this came up on here, back in May of this year.

http://www.100-biker.co.uk/forums/sh...ad.php?t=34981

It just amazes me that so many people will blindly sign it without doing any further research when there is absolutely nothing to back up the claims.

I may have some magic beans here that would be of interest to some of you........
