Nope, and when I did have a car I didn't have to pay anything for its "road tax" either. :)

Yes, for the first time in my life I now own TWO cars!  Two 1990 'H'-reg cars, so 2 x £195, or whatever it is at the moment, before it goes up in the budget.

Alright, VED if you want to be pedantic.  It'll never be road tax though, not even for you.

Oh, sorry!  I did realise you said that title tongue-in-cheek, so I wasn't including you in the list.

  • Not my boat. Now sold.
Not me.
I sold my car (Rover Montego 2.0 Turbo Diesel) when I realised that it needed me more than I needed it.
However, that I've got more (much more) money than sense, I'm considering splashing out on something sporty and impractical.  If only to keep some rain off my driveway.

These vehicles include

I pay vehicle excise duty on 2 cars. I also pay £160 per month council tax, income tax, insurance duty, duty on petrol, duty on beer, duty on wine, VAT, plus probably a hundred other petty little taxes introduced by Gordon fucking Brown over the last 10 years!!!   >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
This isn't just a thousand to one shot. This is a professional blood sport. It can happen to you. And it can happen again.

I dont think he can be blamed for *all* of them, FB....   

(and there's a simple way to pay less tax on beer - you wont like it, but it works ;D)

Yet we still pay less tax (as a proportion of national income) than for the entire 1980s bar 1989 where we paid the same amount as in 2008.  We have had two periods of low tax since 1980 - once under the Tories, 1992-1997, and once under Brown, 2002-2005.  The remainder of the Brown period has been fairly average.
