Default Something that affects us all

The government's proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you having to
purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to use it.
The tracking device will cost about 200 and in a recent study by the BBC,
the lowest monthly bill was 28 for a rural florist and 194 for a delivery
driver.
A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school paid 86 in
one month.
On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody will
know where you are at all times. They will also know how fast you have been
going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit you can expect a
NIP with your monthly bill.
If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car
driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website

The government are too inept to be able to introduce such a scheme but I'm sure they will waste billions trying

Ex-biker i think you are right to raise this, we have to show that we are fed up of being used to fund blair/bush illegal activities around the globe.

Seems like this partition is putting a strain on No.10's servers.

Last paragraph - maybe they'll get the message
