Chancellors-Budget-2012

Just Heard about the budget 2012 on the news, well to be honest the budget doesn't help us or give us inspiration to spend more, the budget does not help us in rising fuel costs where most of what little profit we make goes to the government.
  • Fuel duty no change until August then goes up by 3p (still expensive) this will affect us.
  • Road tax to rise in line with inflation (road hauliers VED Frozen, couriers not included) This will affect us.
This isn't going to help those looking for work as there is no inspiration for business to spend, which is what the budget was about.
Just a thought, TBH if it carries on like it is, just like many other small owner driver courier business's, we may end up on the scrapheap, as bigger companies are looking for cheaper alternatives, as we are being priced out of the market.
