Energy Secretary Chris Huhne yesterday backed plans for an extra £22billion in green taxes – in a move which could send petrol prices soaring.
The Liberal Democrat minister backed a call by his party’s activists which would see 10 per cent of all Government revenue come from green taxes within five years.
Revenue from green taxes is currently forecast to fall from 6.9 per cent of the total to 6.5 per cent over the next five years. Raising the proportion to 10 per cent would require an extra £22billion – an unprecedented shift in the burden of taxation.
How can the Tories stand to be in Government with these WANKERS? The Tories are supposed to be the party of business and while they are looking to help business, these pricks are doing all they can to destroy Britain's commercial viability. Do these fuckwits think, for one minute, that in this 'global' economy, that China, India or Brazil are going to give a fuck about climate change or 'green' policies? That's why they have double figure growth and we are stagnating. I knew it would come to grief!
