This looks like this will come into force soon, will this replace road tax and fuel duty? Or will the poorest get stung three times.

No one knows at the moment.

The chances are that this will come into force when a significant proportion of drivers drive electric cars - so road tax / fuel duty will not come into play (for them).

Just looked this up. Sounds like this country if it's introduced will become even more of a hell country. Taxed per mile? I doubt this is what the Yanks had in mind when they were protesting about British taxes but seems they weren't far off the mark. Also are the gov going to spy on you so they know how much to charge you and will the rat *******s charge you to implement this spying technology in your car?

You could take the view that duty on petrol/diesel/LPG is already a crude per-mile tax, with a discount for more fuel-efficient vehicles (i.e. they use less fuel per mile and hence pay less in duty).

Electric cars don't pay "road tax" (Vehicle Excise Duty) currently, but there's no reason why that couldn't change in the future. (This is a standard approach by governments -- give people a financial reason to do things the government wants them to do (or do more of), give people a financial disincentive to do things the government wants people not to do (or to do less of).)
