    Check out:

    This directly affects me and tens of thousands of others who live within the (now greatly enlarged) congestion/CO2 charge zone and own larger cars.

    We have no choice but to pay the charge as we already live within the zone. Red Ken's tax rise, and complete removal of the resident discount for larger cars, means our tax will rise from 190 per year to 6625 per year, a rise which is unprecedented in British history.

    Livingstone is acting like a rabid dog; in less tolerant countries, with a tradition of more "direct" action when dealing with unpopular politicians, someone would have already put this creature down by now.

    One can only hope that Porsche, represented by the not inconsiderable talents of blue blooded City law firm law Slaughter & May, will see this through all the way to the European Court.

    Against the backdrop of the Stalinist regime in City Hall, how ironic it is that individuals are now relying on global corporations to defend their freedom.

    That seems a little extreme.

    Cool picture but no it isn't!

    A lot of regular cars are affected by Red Ken's politics of Green (as in envy) despicable gesture. Check out

    http://www.vcacarfueldata.org.uk/search/vedSearchResults.asp

    and select "all" from the drop down to see affected vehicles. All 68 pages of them!

    A basic knowledge of biology should impart the fact that Carbon Dioxide, CO2, is a fundamental molecule, essential for all life on earth. Plants and marine life absorb this gas and produce Oxygen as byproduct of the metabolic process, which in turn is of course fundamental for all non-plant life on land and in the sea. Therefore, in no sense, is CO2 "noxious" or injurious to health and longevity in any conceivable way.

    All the BS talked by Green lobby fails to take into account the real nasties produced by cars, namely Carbon Monoxide, hydrocarbon particulates and Oxides of Nitrogen of which many scuzzy small cars produce in greater abundance to larger, better engineered vehicles eg check the table at the bottom of page at

    Three quarters of Londoners do not support this insanity. Also note that Livingstone has refused to release the baseline data behind his own earlier poll that ostensibly suggested everybody wanted it:

    http://www.porschejudicialreview.co.uk/news.php?id=13

    In not publishing the basline data, Livingstone's pollsters are in direct contravention of their own industry's code of practise.....

    People laugh at Fidel, Kim Il Sung and various Mad Mullahs running elections and opinion polls showing overwhelming support for their regimes. Unfortunately such practises are evidently alive and well in Ken's Soviet Socialist Republic of Londonistan....

    In any case, the Conservatives have just unseated the Looney Red/Green Livingstone in the London Mayoral elections and they have promised to scrap his insane Class War based tax.

    So it looks Porsche can drop their challenge and I wont have to sell my Lexus.

    Result!
