    You can't all have been on the trollies or scratching out your nvqs.
    1990, I was 23, employed by BT, wanted promotion for the extra money, and bought a 350 YPVS with a loan, I didn't want to riot.
    The Poll Tax was pretty easy to avoid paying, just live at someone's but not be on the electorall roll, I think I paid it for the first 18 months of it, but then never paid any more of it by living at 3 different addresses at the same time.

    I'm an upstanding citizen and have happily paid my taxes, knowing that my contributions help maintain a society whereby those who can pay support those who cannot.

    Fairest usage tax we had... never understood why people objected to it.

    10 people in one house use more than a couple in a house. Even if the house is tiny and they live like a load of Bulgarians... gypsies tramps

    I wonder if these guys would try stopping the tube like that on a Saturday afternoon when Millwall fans are trying to get to the ground?

    You're welcome.
