New Electronic Taxes on Old Paper Tax Discs ?

Car tax has been a stealth tax for decades and has nothing to do at all with paying for the roads. The branding of it as a supposed “road fund licence” has been a clever marketing gimmick to disguise its real nature as just a car tax. Now from October the paper tax disc is being replaced by an on-line system. This gives lots more scope for increased stealth taxes from penalties in catching-out the ordinary driver, a bit like electronic wheel-clamping.
