WHY is the government still allowing diesel drivers to get ripped off for gas?
Wholesale prices are at a 15-month low.
But retailers are now collecting 19p a liter profit instead of 9p last year.
Freezing fuel taxes like Chancellor Merkel did, White Van Man doesn’t mind if gas stations keep making profits.
The RAC says if only one major retailer did the right thing and lowered prices to a reasonable level, its competitors would follow suit.
But that’s exactly what the government could do permanently with a new Pumpwatch regulator to monitor and publish prices.
Why wasn’t this mentioned in the budget?
Out to Africa
DESPITE all the nagging about the “unworkability” of Rwanda’s migrant program, the African country has the capacity to take in the thousands who have landed here illegally.
But we suspect that only a fraction of these spaces will be needed.
The term deterrence confuses the left.
But once migrants with small boats realize they are buying tickets to Rwanda via Dover, they will go elsewhere.
Channel junctions will dry up.
Denmark and Germany are also considering such plans.
But Labor remains so against it, as it has absurdly declared Rwanda a “failure” before it even started.
Blinder ideology increasingly overrides solutions in Keir Starmer’s party.
France breaks out
IMAGINE if the Tories suddenly raised the retirement age by two years without a vote, challenging Parliament and sparking riots.
The left would explode.
They would brand Rishi Sunak a fascist, beat him with crippling trials and public shaming in Parliament.
For Twitter idiots he would be “worse than Hitler”.
But we’re talking about President Macron here – the photogenic poster child for the Remoaner craze of the liberal, inclusive EU.
He gets a free ticket.
By the way, we agree with Macron.
Tragic as it is to imagine the French having to work beyond 62, the new 64 limit is still lower than most.
If their pension system goes bust, well, c’est la vie.
Licence to kill
A RISE of 8.2 per cent in the BBC license could be the last straw for a skint audience.
That’s the projected increase in 2024, in line with inflation after a two-year freeze.
Millions are increasingly outraged at paying a mandatory tax on their TV in this modern era of multi-channel selection and subscription streaming.
It’s insane that this channel is still funded on a model that was created a century ago.
So is the idea that the BBC cannot get by on the £3.7 billion that is currently being stolen from us every year and given to us by the state
