No such thing as road tax, it is vehicle excise duty, thats how they get away with the state of the roads as they are.


That is how all Governments work, do you think the SNP would act any different.

Tax is collected and distributed as the Govt. of the day see fit.

I would prefer a fairer distribution .

I'm away for a wee Coke, the Cola kind you understand. tongue.gif

I may laugh with Rab C. But at root I don't share his cynicism.

What took you to Kuching, in Sarawak? I worked, and lived for several years in Brunei.
How I got there was because I was single, quite adventurous, and took certain opportunities that presented themselves.

However, not everyone wants to be in a country where out of 17 native species of snake, only 16 are poisonous.


So you were single adventurous and scared of snakes!

"road tax" is just old shorthand. Interestingly, you either need a "tax" disc or complete an "off road" notification. Just done my motorbike SORN smile.gif

Pedantic lot that you are.
You know I meant the tax disk but it seems that they're looking at doing away with even that now. It's all going to be computerised. Eek!
Sorry to hear about your motorbike, farrochie, or do you only drive off road?

It already is Betsy, police have number plate recognition and know if you are taxed, insured and MOT'ed. Mines didn't come in time last year, i phoned Swansea to let them know and they said it was fine to still drive as i was on record as having paid as i did it through the website.

I never use it in the winter, so for the first time I thought I'd save some money by not taxing it over winter. Will do 6 months tax May - October.

John, I mean they are doing away with the paper disks altogether soon.
Farrochie, good thinking Batman. Mind you it does make you a fair weather rider! Don't you want to ride in snowstorms and howling gales?
Anyway, I'm going way off subject so I'll shut up now.

Seems to me that both sides are as bad as each other the no campaign with their fear campaign and the yes campaign who see Independance as a panacea for all ills.

I think the situation was best summed up by Rab C on the Hogmanay show last night - "2014 will be the year the great Scottish people will decide if they are to be shafted by Westminster or Holyrood"

Many a true word spoken in jest.


I could not agree more what I really want is a vote on EU membership it's our membership of that morally bankrupt den of thieves that is destroying our nation.

As for an independent Scotland how long would it take for us to end up like Greece or Ireland if we allow the shortbread tin nationalists to take control of our nation.

It's time for real change vote UKIP all the rest have lied to us and sold us down the river time and time again.

Yet you don't seem to have a problem promoting our continued membership of that not just morally, but financially bankrupt den of thieves that is destroying our nation called Westminster Stephen.

An independent Scotland would not end up like Greece, why would it?

For example Scotland's economy is much broader based and stronger than Greece's, if we are to compare an independent Scotland to similar sized European countries then Denmark, Finland, or Sweden would be more accurate examples.

It has also escaped your notice that Ireland's economy has recovered quicker and is outstripping the UK's, and as for your slur about "shortbread tin nationalists to take control of our nation", had you even bothered to do a quick check before opening your mouth you would have realised that the Scottish economy has grown quicker and is stronger than the UK's due to the skill of John Swinney balancing the books and protecting the people of Scotland from the ravages of Tory cuts and George Osborne's calamitous mismanagement that see's the UK debt spiral to over £1.5 Trillion and growing at an astonishing rate of over £5,000 per second. http://www.nationaldebtclock.co.uk/

Yes, Westminster have lied to us and sold us down the river time and time again.

Time for change.
