Time for Action National Fuel Protest

Maybe the government should put a set rate of duty on fuel, not a %??

Therfore protecting us in future from increased duty based soley on the trade cost of fuel?

It already is a set rate of duty, it’s never been a percentage rate. Currently 52.35p/litre and if fuel was £2 or 95p/litre the duty would still be 52.35p/litre.

    I’d forgotten that they cancelled the 2p rise in April. Easy to miss it considering fuel was going up 2p a week anyway at the time.

    How would removing VAT from the fuel duty help anyone in the transport industry though? We just claim it back anyway.
