Is this Gordon Brown or the EU instigating it?

after further reading without the blind rage i suffered last night it is the EU but gordon brown is the transport minister and i have no doubt he was a strong driving force behind this.

imo both are instigating this but forcing people onto buses when they are already over crowded and they thing they can get rid off hundreds of thousands of cars is beyond me completely.

Is your rage still blinding? I think Gordon Brown is Chancellor and transport minister is Stephen Ladyman, or god forbid, is there another Gordon Brown in the cabinet?

If these measures were introduced it is a pure window-dressing measure - I saw some figures from the FBHVC that showed classic cars (not necessarily those over 10yo) make up 1.3% of the vehicle population and 0.1% of mileage travelled.

A ban like that would take two of my cars off the road at a stroke

John, there is a LOT more cars older than 10 years old on the road in Australia than in the UK, especially in states that do not have annual roadworthy checks.

However it would be a lot more diplomatic to enhance public transport (ie cheaper, more efficient) here in the UK and then those that want a car of any age can have it.

Zac, the FBHVC is the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, so those figures do relate to Britain! I do agree, the Australian equivalent would be much higher as it is not unheard of to see the occasional 1950s car in daily use let alone 1980s.

I agree public transport would be a more sensible option. Too bad it is a joke out here, the buses stop running soon after 7pm so if you aren't home by then you could have a long walk!
