A tax is a tax

Dressing taxes up by calling them environmental levies or so-called 'green taxes' is nothing more than window dressing. A tax is a tax and nothing more.

The EU and national governments are being less than honest when they impose taxes on us and tell us that it's for our own good. Environmental taxes do nothing for the environment, they just take more money out of our pockets.

The favourite targets of the moment are motorists and travellers, in particular air passengers.

The EU is set to introduce complex carbon trading schemes on airlines that will do nothing except increase the complexity of taxation and push up the additional levies, charges and taxes that are already piled on us.
