UK government plans tax on fresh air to ‘help improve environment’

UK rural

The air we breathe is set to be taxed as part of a revolutionary ­Government plan to raise more money.

Rural folk will have to cough up the most under the new charge – already dubbed a gasp bill – while those living in our polluted cities will be expected to pay less.

The Air Tariff Control system will assess charges in different areas of the country and every household will be liable for payments, which will be administered by local authorities and added to council tax bills.

The project, to be run by a private firm under a five-year licence, is designed to fund air quality improvement initiatives.

One senior air technician at the Environment Agency said: “Air is natural but, just like water, it is a finite resource that we have to manage sensibly. Water quality and supply improved with privatisation and there is no reason why this should not have the same impact on air. The aim is to allow everyone to enjoy high-quality breathing air.”

The scheme, which the Government believes will help reduce levels of asthma and bronchitis, will see each region of the country allocated an Air Band to determine how much each household will pay.

The Lake District is likely, according to
the documents, to be in the highest bracket while residents of cities such as London, Manchester and Birmingham are earmarked for rebates because of traffic fumes.

Special plants will later be built to capture clean air and regulate its flow around the country, monitored by tracking devices being developed at Ayr University.

But critics believe the Coalition plan will see the end of free air for all in the UK, with private companies cashing in.

One Labour backbencher said last night: “This has literally taken my breath away.”

    The IMF & World Bank are UN agencies (google it) & it’s sovereign eating un-elected dictator technocrats are UN agents… >that pay no fek’n tax. Do you think the UN is there for you? Do you think they will tell you the truth about AGW?

    Greenpeace isn’t who they want you to think:

    Google: Amid Federal Land Grab in Brazil, Whole Towns Evicted at Gunpoint by Alex Newman

    Federal Brazilian police and military personnel, some wearing United Nations insignia, are forcibly relocating whole communities in Brazil at gunpoint under the guise of returning huge tracts of land to a small group of Indians whose ancestors were allegedly there at some point.

    Excerpt:
    Critics& local residents have accused the government of Brazil of mass corruption, saying the end goal is to smash private property ownership &all potential resistance — starting with the rural population. They argue, among other points, that federal authorities are doing the bidding of foreign interests &are in cahoots w/ the UN, massive international corporations, Western-based non-governmental organizations like Greenpeace, &other interests.

    Remember this?

    Armed Troops Burn Down Homes, Kill Children To Evict Ugandans In Name Of Global Warming

    Prison Planet
    September 23, 2011

    Armed troops acting on behalf of a British carbon trading company backed by the World Bank burned houses to the ground and killed children to evict Ugandans from their homes in the name of seizing land to protect against “global warming,” a shocking illustration of how the climate change con is a barbarian form of neo-colonialism.”

    “The evictions were ordered by New Forests Company, an outfit that seizes land in Africa to grow trees then sells the “carbon credits” on to transnational corporations. The company is backed by the World Bank and HSBC. Its Board of Directors includes HSBC Managing Director Sajjad Sabur, as well as other former Goldman Sachs investment bankers.”

  2. OK, so who pays for the chemtrails?

    This is so confusing :/

  3. Are the Brits bloody STUPID or something?? They cut off the Pope for just such idiocy, yet will tolerate it from the Greenies…Wake the f up, England!!!!

  4. Co2 (the so called global warming gas) is the air you breathe out and it’s paid through your energy bills. So they already created an air tax! SAY NO TO PAYING AIR TAXES TWICE!

  5. UK government can go to hell. They don’t mind war machines spewing Depleted Uranium on human beings, destroying the human genome for only about (glances at watch) 4.5 BILLION YEARS. The mega industries that flaunt every environmental initiative also get a free pass – but the lowly average citizen? Let’s tax the very effing air they breathe – nice try, but go to HELL.

  6. What a great idea. This will virtually guarantee Scotland breaking away from England.
    When the wind blows from the North, Scotland can send a bill to England for the fresh air.
    When the wind blows from the south Scotland can send a bill to England for their polluted air arriving in Scotland.
    Ireland can cash in on the deal when the wind is from the west. France and Belgium can cash in when the wind is from the East.
    Alternatively, the British people should say ENOUGH and get a new system of government.

  7. Jajajajajaja
    Jack ass amazing… Jajajajaj
    It has to be a joke…
    Next tax… Smelly crap tax.. Citizens crap will be assed for methane content and those with smellier crap will have to pay up…
    No wonder the west is going down the drain…

  8. I am gasping for air reading this

  9. Pollute less, pay more. Makes perfect UK jackass sense to me!!!

  10. Hail Hitlar! See the Bittish Nazis are taxing anything. The public wont put up there crap much longer. How about we dont spend 160billion on war equipment that is not needed for fake govenment terroists. This country has turned to shit. Im ashamed to be English. FU cammron your a massive bellend. And wont get a penny off me

    • Sounds like we’re all pretty friggin fedup with our asshat leadership. Us yanks (how did we get that label? sounds similar to wanker, doncha think?) have had enough garbage from the cesspool of politics, and it’s apparent it isn’t going to fix itself. But at least we still have guns. Lots of guns.
