New waste charge costs announced

Sotte Voce

"Well, Aerial View, there are taxes paid by smokers that are not paid by non-smokers, so what is the relevance to motorists and cyclists?"

None whatsoever would seem to be the answer.

Finbarr Saunders

Very good point dot. I didn't realise that people could buy fuel off road that was free of road related impositions (taxes and duties).

So if I get this right, if you want to use a car off road the...


Aerial V, case our friend raises his point about the "car running in the drive", it should also be added that road tax free fuel is available for off road use. A number of outlets sell the...

Bob your post does not make sense. When a cycles is used on the roads there is no need for petrol and no tax paid. When a car is used on the roads unless electric requires petrol which is taxed, whils...

Yes, Finbarr, we have had a lot of trolling from Bob on another thread. He does like to derail a discussion and troll all over it.

The various impositions which are paid by motorised road users are...

'Help find car park hit-and-run driver'


I was hoping for a better response from Bob, but sadly he's gone back into insult mode, even including some sort of sexual reference, it would seem. His mind must be a most dark and unpleasant place.

I am so glad that you find so much pleasure in trolling on here Bob.

It makes a refreshing change from Diggers multiple profiles and his tissue bank.

I wonder why you get equally excited every t...

He's still repeating his misreading, Dot.

The claim "Vehicle registration is a valuable means of detecting crime" makes no sense to the Bobtroll, who simply deliberately misreads and then repeats a...


Still cant provide an example.

And now resorting to comments about "the moderator".

Its rather sad how you cannot even respond in a sensible manner.

Vehicle registration cannot detect crime.

Someone with sense - absolutely spot on - get in the States quick, sorry on second thoughts probably too well educated for the BigOuse !!!


Totally bang on. I know so many idiots who took History of Art as it was the only course they could get on. Bring back real skills and hands on expertise. Invest in kids who might not get great exam r...


Totally agree. Media studies and any literature degrees for that matter are of no benefit in degree form. A good background of schooling and work experience is what brings that degree without 3 years ...

A critical friend . Is this the title of a new book ?. Now Steve ! how much are we the overburdened Taxpayers paying this UK charity ?

Yet another huge bill heading in our direction!!! I'm sure we must be the laughing stock in the "consultant" industry.


"the original Masterplan included plans for a new hotel..." That is the first I have heard of any plans for a hotel. I sat on a panel which was set up (under the then Planning Minister) to look at...
