Truth about diesel and high fuel costs
Pellon New Road
Halifax SO Mr Algirdas Semeta wants to raise fuel taxes across Europe adding yet another 1.5p per litre to petrol and a lot more to diesel. So who is he? Well a Lithuanian who just happens to be the EU tax Commissioner.
Whitehall sources say they will oppose it , like they did the prisoner vote, which we now have to implement tout suite with no right of appeal.
This is a Green Tax. Not. It’s another way to raise money for an ever growing, more corrupt, and dictatorial state.
But why, might you ask is diesel being hit harder than petrol?
Well for one reason half the cars sold in Britain today are diesel powered, get more people therefore more money easy. Well no, not so straightforward.
Yes the money raised will be astounding as will the extra VAT.
As everything moved in this country is moved by diesel up go all the prices, foods, clothing, furniture etc,etc. Everything.
But let us look at the diesel engine, during the seventies it was noisy and cheap to run. We were encouraged to buy diesel cars to save petrol and like sheep we blindly followed the political desires of the day and bought them. Succes- sive governments have raised the price annually till it is now more expensive than petrol. They have condemned the petrol engine as being the cause of high tides dry summers no snow during the winter rise in temperature and every other climatic oddity.
This is and always has been a lie.
Fact. Diesel engines emit up to 20 times more harmful gases from the exhaust

Fact. The nonoparticles
con- tained in the exhaust Cause an increase in cardiovascular disease. (The.Lancet)
Fact. Diesel exhaust gas contains more than 40 substances that are listed as hazardous air pollutants of which 15 cause CANCER. (EHC Teknik)
Fact. The W.H.O as part of the same studies said ‘there exists inadequate evidence in carciogenicity from whole petrol engines’. (The World Health Organisation)
Fact. NOx gasses produced by diesel engines have increased by 19% or by 4 million tons per year
So remember when you get on the bus and leave your car at home You are killing someone, and paying for the privilege. And if you drive a diesel car...?
