I've just renewed my road tax online, two weeks before it's due to expire. It may be a good idea to renew your road tax NOW (online) if it's due to expire on the 31st March 2007.

Online Road Tax

Speculation is, that there could be higher road taxes coming with immediate effect from the 21st March 2007 (post Budget).

2007 UK Budget

Save some £££ folks, you know it makes sense..

Ok then but who do we vote for instead?

UKIP? Er no, bunch of pointless fools

BNP? No, bunch of even more pointless fools.

Conservative? Can you tell the difference between these guys and new labour?

Green? They'd ban our cars for a start so NO.

Lib dem? They'd put up taxes even more and the motorist would not get an easier time than they are now.

I would love to vote for someone else, I just need a party worthy of my vote...

I'm struggling to imagine they would be more pointless than the ones we already have, at least we may get some sense on imigration.

Well said Nigel, with you 110% on that point! I'm not a big fan of their earlier years policies but I think they are better reformed for the better. It's only a matter of time before enough people get fed up with the way our country is being run down.

The BNP believe in repatriation for all none whites. So anyone who isn't white will be sent back to the country that their family originally came from, even people who are second and third generation in this country.

So yes a bunch of pointless fools.

The whole taxing the 4x4 thing, I feel, is just the begining. Once the leftys have got them baned it won't be long before they turn there attentions to large cars then anything over 1000cc, by which time they'll have us living in bloody caves again.

I say we should rise up and have a cull of all the lefty greenies just think of the amount of greenhouse gases they produce endlessly talking about the environment. We would be saving the planet!

Not sure whther you are being sarcastic or not.

Let me put it this way, my best mans girlfirend and the mother of his child is only second generation Uk. She was born here but her parents weren't. She works in the NHS as a cardiologist and contributes to our society just tha same as me or anyone else.

However as a none white she would not fair too well under the BNPs rule.

The BNP aren't about reducing imigration or stopping illegals getting into the country, they're about getting rid of anyone who isn't white regardless of why there here and how long they've been here.

If people don't have a problem with that then go ahead and vote for them.

Second generation myself Peter, so no, I'm not being sarcastic sorry if it came accros that way.

My best friend wife gave birth to their second last week, he's also second generation however his wife isn't....where the hell do they go?

They just haven't really thought it out have they?

I was under the impression that is their old regime and not what they are about now. I have some family who are second generation Jamaicans so would also come under this ruling. One of them is a DCI in the police, the other works as a court administrator so also both contribute. What gets me is the ones who cannot speak anything that remotely resembles our language but can take our council houses which our tax has paid for and have benefits that we pay for. I do not see this as fair in any way, shape or form. It is this that needs to be stopped to stop our country going completely down the pan. I am a firm believer in "when in Rome...etc..." so why is it we have to give them their own space to practise what they want to do and if we oppose it we are being racist?  angry? don't even get me started.

Sorry, I appear to have veered off topic, not digging at any remarks on here but we have touched a subject very close to my heart and it makes my blood boil.

If you really want to be able to propound the policies you want, you might want to have a go a standing in your local constituency as an Independent candidate.

With the "right" (and did I say "the right"? I meant "plausibly attractive") policies, you could find yourself in the Commons at the next General Election. Ask Martin Bell and that doctor fella from Wyre Forest....

And with sufficient numbers of Independents in the Commons, things could get interesting politically....very interesting.....

So, who's up for it, then?
