I really am getting very tired of this shit.
There are a few reasons why I find this particularly galling.
First of all, it's more of this fucking "nudge" process. Make something as difficult as possible so we are forced to use an alternative. There is so much of this fucking nudging going on that life is becoming very difficult. I don't want to use fucking public transport and I shouldn't be penalised for that choice. If they were really serious they would make public transport cheaper and not motoring more expensive. Cunts.
Then there is the small fact that not all of us live beside a station or near multiple bus routes. If I want to use public transport, the only place I can go to is one end of Skobieville and that is one little journey I do not want to take. If I want to go any of the places I normally would drive to, it would take a flat minimum of two buses, and more often three and sometimes a train. If they think I am going to hang around in the wind and rain waiting for an overpriced succession of late unreliable buses they can fucking think again.
Next there is the simple fact that next to smokers, motorists have to pay a vastly disproportionate level of tax anyway. I already have Road Tax, VAT on petrol, excise on petrol, carbon tax, licence tax and a car-test tax and probably a few taxes I have forgotten, and I do not need another one. And in case the Idiot Varadkar doesn't realise it, transport costs affect the price of virtually everything. If I want my oil tank filled, are they going to send out a succession of blokes with jerry-cans on the bus? No, they're going to use a lorry which will cost more and I will have to cover that cost ultimately.
And then there is the final kicker –
"Addressing climate change is one of the major challenges of our generation. There is no doubt that climate change is real and that it is largely caused by human activity," he said.
And of course the EU is behind this with their fucking "emission targets".
When are they going to get it into their thick fucking skulls that there is a fucking doubt, and the longer we live the bigger the doubt becomes. This is yet another pandering to the largely discredited Church of Climatology and once again we have to pay for their idiot beliefs.
Stop the fucking world.
I want to get off.
