Fresh call for road charging in Liverpool

A few days ago Liverpool city council was named the worst local authority in the country for the second time in weeks. Now as if we haven't got enough to pay out as regards motoring tax, the price of petrol, diesel, increase in tunnel fares, increase in parking fines etc etc. There are now talks of a congestion charge being introduced to the Liverpool city centre putting even more pressure on car owners.

Financial mismanagement is becoming a standard joke for this council so the easy way for them to recoup the money is by hammering all honest motorists by these "stealth increases"..Pathetic.

  1. Whats going to happen to congestion and infrastructure when the population is suddenly boosted by a few million more Turkish workers (and their families) when Turkey acceeds to the the European Community in the not to distant future. Most of them are going to want cars aren't they. After all the more poeple we can get here the better for the economy isn't it.
