FairFuelUK's Top 5 Campaign Objectives 2024...

Cut Fuel Duty - Implement PumpWatch - Scrap 2030 Ban - Stop ULEZs/LTNs 
Reverse Anti-Driver Policies Since 2010, 

FairFuelUK has been the only true political voice of UK drivers in Westminster. 

Labour Reverse Ban on New Diesel and Petrol Cars, back to 2030

If you drive for business, work, hospital visits, education, or leisure, be aware that Labour’s net zero politburo is looming. Please don’t believe that they say they support the UK’s 37 million drivers. As their Hans Christian Anderson Manifesto says, they are telling porky pies about supporting motorists. There will be more anti-driver policies based on fairy-tale science they are brainwashed by. Prepare for the imposition of nanny state bans and restrictions that will not only halt your vehicle usage but also make it financially unviable to continue. This directly infringes on your freedom of travel choice and independence, clearly violating your democratic rights.    My good friends at the Alliance of British Drivers and the Motorcycle Action Group showed, through independent research by the CEBR, that the ban on selling new diesel and petrol cars from 2030 would cost five times more than the hypothetical environmental benefit. That’s why Rishi Sunak moved it to 2035. That is one good thing he has done, even though dumping the policy completely is what FairFuelUK has always called for, which is backed by hundreds of the recent Tory MPs. But the numpties in Labour ignore the economics and are happy to put huge costs onto each and every one of us to save the planet, allegedly. FairFuelUK with Reform UK will campaign hard from now on to scrap this ill-conceived ban, which will destroy British jobs. A better win-win is possible: new technology will provide cleaner engines, cleaner fuel, and lower emissions while preserving British jobs and boosting British industry. But Labour is too stupid to incentivise technology; no, they are wedded to nanny state bans; it’s in their political DNA.

Independent economic research

 Proof ULEZ Shrinks London's Economy £500m to 800m Per Year

Howard Cox, Founder of the FairFuelUK, commissioned the Cebr (The Centre for Economics and Business Research) to analyse the economic impact of the proposed extension of the London Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) in August 2023

The key points of the study are:

The existing ULEZ has an impact on the London economy – we estimate the costs to businesses and consumers are £253 million, though as part of that (£169 million) is revenue for TfL, in economics terms the economic cost (the deadweight loss to consumers and the admin costs) is £199 million.

Scaling from this we estimate that the Proposed ULEZ has an additional revenue impact of £369 million.

This means that the total Proposed ULEZ scheme (i.e. both the current scheme and the proposed scheme) has a revenue cost to consumers and businesses of £538 million.

If in addition the economic costs to users are included the total cost rises to £807 million.

Using a different measure, which discounts the revenue costs because they represent income to TfL but also includes their admin costs, the total economic cost of the scheme is £569 million.

Moreover these calculations only estimate the direct effects.

Since the impact of the Proposed ULEZ on vans is 4.5 times that of the existing ULEZ and hence essentially on business activity, it is likely that the Proposed ULEZ has additional indirect economic effects which we have not taken into account, and that for the extended scheme these could be quite substantial.

Howard Cox says: “Mayor Khan’s fixation with an alleged air quality improvement scheme that not only needlessly fleeces drivers, sole traders, and low-income motorists, it also rips at least half a £billion out of the Capital’s economy per year. It is way past time, hard pressed Londoners rid themselves of this dishonest career politician and support a new Mayor that will scrap ULEZ for good and get London moving again.”

The  Electric Vehicle Con:

Our research has shown that from cradle to grave, battery-powered electric vehicles have little – or indeed no CO² advantage – over internal combustion engine vehicles. We have considered the resourcing of raw materials used for the manufacture, utilisation and final disposal of both internal combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles, including emissions from the production of both electricity and fossil fuels. If it was to show any theoretical advantage, a battery-powered electric vehicle would have to be manufactured and re-charged using power that is genuinely as close to Net Zero as is currently scientifically achievable – including the CO² costs of constructing the power generating infrastructure.  This would restrict the only possible power source to nuclear energy, as wind, solar and hydro are intermittent and need constant back-up from conventional sources to keep the National Grid providing reliable electricity. As yet, the world – and particularly the UK – is unable to deliver that scale of power reliability, and there is no such thing as zero CO².

Here are ​FairFuelUK's 5 Core Campaign Objectives for this Government, and all 
Westminster Politicians, to support.....

1. ....Cut fuel duty big, to stimulate economy, reduce inflation, increase consumer spending & generate new growth taxes 

2. ....Introduce our PumpWatch that the CMA backs, but it must have teeth to make petrol & diesel pricing fair, honest & transparent

3. ....Scrap the 2035 un-consulted and needless ban on new petrol/diesel car sales

4. ....Stop the continuing cash grabbing vitriolic myopic local authority warfare on UK's 37m drivers (These include ULEZs, LTNs, 15 Mins Localities, Cycle Lanes that cause congestion etc)

5. ....Recognise motorists are not just cash cows to be demonised by politicians & much of the ultra left wing media, but instead are the essential social & commercial heartbeat of our economy
