I know Tim Yeo hales from somewhere near your neck of the woods, so I am hoping that you could ask him if he could help me with my dilemma;
I am a Conservative voting pensioner living off a very small income, topped up with the state pension.
I bought a 1.8 Zaphira in 2001. Should I;
A) Pay a penalty (=fine) of around £250/350 or more per year VED for the next ten-odd years, to be used towards propping up our country's collapsing economy, because I now own a gas guzzler, or
B) Spend £13,000 plus from my rapidly diminishing pension pot to order a new greener car, manufactured from the world's remaining resources, in order to only pay another £100 plus VED ??
I am relying on you to ask him, as I read somewhere that he is a very busy man, as I believe that apart from being an MP, he also travels all over Europe reviewing golf courses for the Telegraph.
P.S. Please also give him our best wishes from the real world.
