“PAYE, legalised theft from the middle and lower classes who have no option of dodging anything and the best one yet we all get duped with is VAT on petrol/diesel taxed on tax.”

Townliar on Nov 27, 2013 at 01:20:12

“Sick...you can opt out of PAYE just tell your employer you wish to do your own this is perfectly legal trouble is it is too easy for people to let their bosses do it for them ...but if everyone did and was a bit late in paying what a shock the Gov would get as the gravy would dry up quickly, HMRC would go into melt down chasing everyone and hey presto a newer easier more fair system would need to be very quickly set up to appease people and get them paying again as for VAT you are right paying taxes out of money that is already taxed just like savings taxed on the interest from money you have saved after tax and capital gains making money of a property you paid for (after tax) and with interest??? Lawful rebelion is what is needed a start is to stop paying the BEEB it will give you a warm glow and set you off down the right path!”

“I seem to remember the economy was improving under Liebor too then nosedived under the Tories into an almost triple dip depression never before achieved by a chancellor. Meanwhile Ozzy in his wisdom pumped billions more worthless bits of paper into the "economy" devaluing the pound, creating inflation and boosting the "debt" to double what Labour left us with. Smoke and mirrors mate, if you have any sense buy something which will either retain or increase in value as just like every other country in this ponzi scheme of debt based currency we are going down and it wont be pretty once the hordes are hungry.”

“When they were kicked out the last time they were known as the "nasty party" but this lot have surpassed themselves and I cant think of an appropriate adjective, needless to say these greedy toffs have never had the wellbeing of this nations people anywhere near the top of their list of priorities, proven by who they give tax cuts to as soon as they get in and their failure to address tax loopholes. The bigger problem is that when they do get the boot for a number of years you then have a new crop of voters to convince of how absolutely horrible this party is for the majority.”

“Rather than concentrate on taking cash from road users I think the better idea would be to instruct cyclists who have placed themselves in dangerous positions at these junctions, but no, as usual someone has seen yet another way of taking money out of road user pockets is what I was driving at so really has nothing to do with safety but a lot to do with collecting cash.”

“Yeah, ban the lorries whose road fund license, insurance and MOT is through the roof, whose drivers have to undergo refreshing their licenses regularly and who deliver all those goodies the London consumer gets to waste their cash on, sounds like a bad plan to me.

I'd also like to understand the 650 cash collectors at junctions, are they being positioned to aid safety or just another revenue scheme for councils who won't repair roads, provide cycle lanes or even empty the bin weekly though they are rewarded handsomely with each residents council tax payment, oh sorry I forgot, thats to pay the council employees a spiffing pension and ridiculous wages for management, how remiss of me.”

peterwilson2135 on Nov 25, 2013 at 03:26:05

“If lorry drivers do get bans or fines from a greater police presence, they still have to break the law, the police can't just hand them out for no reason. I'd also assume the police can hand out on the spot fines to cyclists for running re lights etc, this won't be a focus on vehicle users alone.”

“So what happened to the loan terms that till you earn X amount theres nothing to repay and if you dont earn said amount the loan is written off after X years, or did these defaulters know another way around repayment like not taking a PAYE job.

I'm not understanding this one as these are the terms of the SLC/government so is this another U-turn of sorts to hit the lowest paid yet again.”

“What, you mean the 260 years where England pilfered what they fancied throughout Scotland, where almost every Laird has his families roots in Southern England. England has been a yolk around Scottish necks long enough, oil or no oil, who gives apart from the likes of yourself who fear losing something in the handover and if not, then why are you so against a legitimate country being in control of her own destiny. Scotland will go from strength to strength if she casts aside the muppets we are forced to endure in the UK parliament.”

“Wastemonster wouldn't be making such a big deal out of this if Scotland weren't going to benefit from it, squandering oil billions for forty years by parliament is just something they'll have to get used to and good luck to the nationalists on it.

The pic above is something else Scotland is likely to lose by remaining as part of the UK, wastemonster forced all industry to the wall south of the border, at least Scotland still has something to be proud of.”

“What about the other 260 years when Scotland did not have oil,and in twenty or thirty years time when it dwindle to a trickle?”

Cyclists 'Long' To Be Knocked Down, Says Tory Lord James

Commented Nov 22, 2013 at 09:16:48 in UK

“I doubt very much anyone is longing to be "knocked down" or to knock somebody down, collisions with cars will be mostly through driver or rider observation skills being way down in the pecking order but as most of these accidents have occurred with HGV/Buses then cyclist stupidity has to be the case, these large vehicles have massive blind spots to stay safe you need give them a wide berth and not hide from their drivers along the inside or under the mirrors of such vehicles, they will not see you.”

sussex2 on Nov 22, 2013 at 09:41:23

“But hiding from vehicles is a national trait.
How often are children told to 'quick run across the road' and/or run out from behind parked cars.
How many drivers wishing to overtake another vehicle hide behind it rather than taking a position where they can see past the thing.
It's endemic and accounts for a lot of trouble on our roads.”
