Electric cars will cost as much to run as petrol vehicles once green motorists are hit by a fresh wave of Government tax rises.
Folk will pay x amount of tax in order to have personal transport. So, government will tax personal transport x amount. Because they can.
We can also estimate the value people put on personal transport. The excess by which they value it over public transport. The amount of tax they’re willing to pay to get that personal transport. Around and about £40 billion a year.
