More green neglect from Brown


No increase in fuel tax again and a refusal to review air passenger duty. No moves whatsoever to tackle the implications of the rapid growth in the aviation industry which is thought to be one of the fastest growing contributors to carbon emissions.

The teeny little gesture of increasing tax on larger vehicles will have little if no impact. What’s needed is a significant increase that will actually deter people from buying the gas guzzlers. It’s not like they’re an essential possession for “Townies”.

Labour – full of hot (polluting) air and no substance.
