I hear the sound of Tumbrels*
In the case of fuel, the taxman takes a double cut because VAT is applied to the cost of the petrol inclusive of fuel tax. Essentially, you have to pay tax on the tax you pay to buy your fuel.
It really is time to rise up and slaughter them!
*Tumbrel: a farm dumpcart for carrying shit; carts of this type were used by the hoi polloi to carry politicians and the other undeserving to the guillotine during the French Revolution.
Two of the benefits of the tumbrel........(1) it doesn't need petrol. (2) it can be pulled by the stronger politicians and the other undeserving to the guillotine.
