See-Search Campaign for the Same Fuel Prices Across Europe (SFPAE)
|Prices and monthly trends||Unleaded pence/ltr||Diesel pence/ltr|
Data sourced - ERIC/USA Av August 2005)
(monthly movements indicated)
NOTICE THAT IN EVERY COUNTRY THERE IS A
SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE (SO MUCH FOR FAIR TRADE IN THE EU)
and what does that say about how the UK government (and others) back their own industry.
Diesel price difference across UK @ August 2005 of 1.8p/ltr (8p/Imp Gallon)
Amount taken by UK Government in tax per litre/Imp Gallon
|Pence/Imp Gallon Tax||126p||326p||320p|
Which other item do you know that is taxed at over 75%
Check out the equivalent cost of fuel in the USA (California) =38.4p Litre
So you think that is OK for UK to cope
with in Europe and as it will surely be a fair and level playing field here - Think Again.
We have been taking statistics for nearly two years now and feel the general public should see for themselves how fair it really is in the UK for it's own subjects.
THIS IS SCANDALOUSThe Government has now revealed its master plan Kim Howells (Minister for Transport) has gone on record as saying he wants to increase the cost of driving a car up to the point where only a few people will be able to afford it.
This Governments Plan he says is, "to tax people out of their cars in the same way as the authorities have tried to tax people off cigarettes" Thats rich coming from a load of self styled socialists who voted themselves a 50% pay rise while the rest of us were induced to be thankful for a measly 2.5%.
This is openly an attack on all of us in order to make sure us plebs will be able to pull our forelocks as the chosen few drive past; in whats left of our once proud industrys output.
So what of us plebs, the x-car worker, the x-transport driver, the x-engineer, the x-office worker, the x-nurse, fireman, services and everyone else. Well find your place and stay in it cos youll get no-where fast with the shambles the public transport system has been allowed to get in, and even if you did find a way where would you live if the price of everything transported has to account for the extra cost of this policy to the consumer beyond their means to pay.
Then again it could all be brought in from abroad where the cost of fuel is much much lower then in the UK, or is that the hidden plan no-one is admitting too.
This website is unashamedly proud to be English first then British. What has happened to this country, are we all sheep?
Leaked/alleged Government papers reveal proposals to ban everyone from the roads except essential services if Petrol Dispute goes ahead. This considers MPs as essential so they won't be affected, everyone else will have to stay at home and the country will of course run itself.
Highest noted petrol in UK 109.9 pence/Ltr or 494.55 pence/Imperial Gallon (Bispham Lancashire) -
Gordon Brown has gone on records as stating, 'it's the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries that's to blame for the high petrol prices'. So is he trying to say the british public is thick and don't realise that must of the cost to us all is in the Petrol Duty and then the VAT on top.
This means this government would prefer to let the country and its industries go to rot rather than listen and admit they are WRONG, WRONG and WRONG AGAIN.
Last year the treasury has took 5billion pounds from North Sea Oil production, this year it likely to be more than 15 billion pounds. And this does not include the 17.5% VAT charged for every litre of fuel at the pumps. Obviously I'm in the wrong Job.
Gordon Brown - Stop treating me and the rest of the country like imbeciles
Then again it's what we have come to expect from 'New Labour'.
