Well lets look at the South East. If I insure a car say a mini in the south east it will cost me £500 approx, but if I lived in benefit street it
would cost me £1000 because of high crime.
Now the law says that we all must have car insurance, but yet the law is unfair, because they allow private companies to charge the poor more.
Now you may say that there is higher crime in benefit street and you maybe right.
But whats that got to do with you paying £500 and me paying £1000, its not my fault that crime is rife, thats a police problem which we both pay
council tax for.
So if the law says that you must have insurance then a car exactly the the make make with the same age of driver should be should be the same cost in
Aberdeen as it in in London.
Since the moved away from taxing income and put it on purchase the unfairness has got worse.
I could be on MIn wage standing next to David Beckam in a petrol garage and both of us filling out cars, yet he make a million a week an I make £120
yet we are both charged the same amount of tax,
Fixed fines punish the poor, £80 is 2 3rds of a weekly wage where it is 10 mins work for some.
The poor in this country have a lot to complain about.
Remember a few years back they brought in fines according to earnings and there was an outcry in the media constantly till it was stopped 3 months
Does not matter how much money you have there is an injustice in this country and is always the poorest that get the sharp end of the sick.
You can only kick a dog so much before it bites you back.
