SNP should promise petroleum tax reform
In a perverted attempt to help reduce pollution, the retards in Westminster
raise diesel and petrol prices by 6% a year, in Scotland and England.
The idea is to force people out of cars and onto public transport.
This may be fine in the cushy South East of England where there are buses and
trains, but those in Rural Scotland and England MUST use their cars to get
to and from work and live their lives.
The SNP should promise to cut fuel taxes for consumers AND cut crude
petroleum tax levies on oil companies to get their support for moves
towards independence NOW.
