Wouldn’t say that here we go. 2 years for business before it goes but agriculture gets relief as well as rail and fishing.
my little woman drives a disco the point i was trying to make is the price of fuel has very little effect on its consumption, but politicians use it as an excuse to impose more tax, its not just fuel booze and fags ,they put more tax on them for your own good, i don't think so!I was referring to your “buy the wife a little runabout” comment - apologies if you feel such an attitude is contemporary, but it certainly isn’t in most households. Of course, I may have misunderstood your post - it’s not easy to follow in the absence of any punctuation.
Many people believe what is passed off as fact if it is given with an air of authority, so i cant bare to let this pass without correction....
Tractor speed limits were comparatively recently raised to 25mph (40kmh) providing the tractor and equipment are no wider than 2.55m. Many medium and larger tractors already exceed this width.
Over 2.55m and up to 3.5m the speed limit is 20mph
Only JCB Fastrac and Mercedes Unimog currently meet the regulatory requirements to travel at 65kmh, and machinery towed or carried has to be no wider than 2.55m and built to the same higher regulatory requirements to travel at these speeds
Fuel will be a tiny part of the cost of HS2. Trust me...the price of railway equipment is just extraordinary.Think he probably just put the cost of HS2 construction up by 20%... be interesting to see the details... diggers will be an interesting one.. might see more farm drainage being down with tractor mounted ones in future!
