Notes
Increase in VED for multi-car households is simply an abomination and an assault on working families finances. One must remember that most households have multiple adults.

Most multi-car households are not millionaires who own multiple cars, they are teenagers owning their first car when living at home or adults living at home. The tax is a tax on jobs, not excessive car use. Teenagers and adult children living at home will be forced to pay extortionate taxes which will reduce their car ownership, restrict their mobility, and ultimately make it harder for them to work. According to the Chancellor's source, 40% of people require a car for work and 37% stated this as the main reason for having more than one car in the household.

The policy targets hard working people the most. The Chancellor dismissing these concerns by claiming it affects a small proportion of car-owning households is an insult to the hardworking young adults.

Furthermore, the ved changes has many loopholes that can be worked around. Example, It's currently acceptable to put your address down as anything. So what's to stop someone from registering their car with a different address? So take the wealthy who own more than one house can easily register their second car in a different address and avoid paying the tax.

I would have liked to have said "I'm surprised to see so many Labour MPs oppposing a tax cut for the working poor" but I'm really not because based on a highly flawed analysis (unsurpriosingly DayneD89 fell silent when his analysis was demonstrated to be highly flawed) they have convinced themselves that the working poor are unaffected and it's a tax on the middle class despite the fact that it is the working poor that are driving the old diesel cars that carry high levels of VED in the first place and it's the middle class buying the new Mercs, BMWs, Audis, Volvos etc with efficent engines and little VED, and the electric cars and hybrids that have no VED. But hey ho, why let facts and figures guide your decisison when you can tell yourself that a punitive tax on low income women and children who can't afford to leave home is okay because the rich have to pay too.
