  1. That Petition Response is an awfully big plaster Gordon but failed to cover ALL the cracks. I think the upshot is ''Tough- its happening regardless'' Government thinking often defies logic and promotes discrimination. As a life long biker I have seen this aimed at my chosen lifestyle countless times. Some years ago new riders faced a mountain of new legislation designed to discourage ownership under the banner of 'safety & training' whereby having once overcome the barriers and passed a test they were further restricted by BHP (Brake Horse Power)and limited to engine cc. However no such restrictions are faced by young drivers having passed a test, classic example being pass a test in a 1 litre car and next day but a 200mph roadburner as your first car limited only by financial considerations.
  2. Political Correctness was the death of not only Freedom of Speech but also Freedom of Choice, once on the popular bandwagon (of the day) driven by lobbyists and activists our political leaders will adopt any policy to appear supportive of 'responsible' legislation. Which should go some way in answering the points made by Scania & Gordon, if the general population of the UK were fully minded regarding climate change then why isn't the Green Party in government running the country with a massive majority?? Talk the talk, don't walk the walk !!! Before too long it will not matter what engine you have in your MH (NEW OR OLD) it will be banned from ever increasing ''Zones'' Today Euro 6 is considered acceptable, but kid yourself not, for how much longer??
  3. Hi Plaskovski, sorry I'm late replying but only just got back today from 2 week holiday in Lanzarote. If you look in Browse Forums for Motorhome Holidays and scroll down the topics you will see my France Trip in some detail (France 2017) Routes & Campsites with photo's. If you need more then send me a Message Direct. Regards Brian
  4. If ''Green'' taxes are effective why is climate change becoming ever more serious. It's one huge con. Direct tax increases damage election prospects, Green taxes raise necessary revenue in a more 'acceptable' way. The WLTP method is the current favourite with the NEDC held in reserve for when another tax increase is deemed necessary. How long before another named method is invented to replace both, and so it goes on.
  5. It could well be David that they don't know themselves. Governments are often guided by ''advisors'' or ''lobby groups'' normally with a vested interest, I doubt for one second the Cabinet of Ministers thought this up themselves. You need a brain to be capable of independent thought. There is money in it for somebody. Brian
  6. I wonder if Gwynnedd County Council in Wales have contacted the UK Government, they don't like motorhomes either 😄
  7. It is not productive for anyone to try and make sense of any government proposal regardless of subject matter, that's how it is and always been. After all our governments are based in another country (London) and a taxpayer funded palace (Palace of Westminster) What could possibly go wrong???
  8. Am I right in thinking this is only on NEW motorhomes? If correct the logic does not add up as emissions on new MH's is far lower than older ones so any extra tax would logically be aimed at older vehicles surely? This is typical ''establishment'' thinking same as Low Emission Zones all round London but OK given to build another runway at Heathrow so even more planes can be accepted. It's OK to fine vehicles for emissions but no zones for aircraft. If a referendum to leave the EU can be ignored a petition stands far less chance regardless of how many sign it. I think we call it Democracy in this country, let the peasants have their say but just do what parliament thinks suits them. Brian
  9. It would seem having a Euro 6 engine is no longer a benefit, probably robbed the treasury of much fake emissions tax so more than one way to skin a cat. Are there any figures on how many motorhomes are registered in the UK? 100,000 signatures seems a distant target. I did sign for what its worth. Brian
  10. Hi Dave, sent you a message. Brian

    A valid point David, all of which was explained to us but I can't help wondering if the surgeon or any surgeon found himself in the exact same circumstances would say to his wife/partner while watching the daily extreme pain that they are not able to have a replacement knee if below a mythical age. I would prefer to believe I am not that easily led. We spoke to other women who had new knee joints aged late 40's simply because they went private not because of medical circumstances.
