I see TFL are hiking the maximum fines up from next Monday on those red routes. https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/...s-23-WEEK.html

Yes you're not wrong, They want a £20 council tax rise also to stop the transit system from collapsing. https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/london-s...apse-1.1696349

Maybe we have been lucky in the past with our level of taxation in what ever form it comes in? I know friends who live on the continent tell me what they pay for stuff.

If we want amenities, good public transport and all the other things the modern age is bringing it has to be paid for in some form.

The next new tax will be paying per mile and electric cars will be paying road tax.

Our taxes are actually quite low considering the services.
