“And we are also in a situation that we have to understand is that the government is ignoring calls from the taxpayers alliance, Fair Fuel UK and the whole motoring fraternity of this country to drastically reduce taxes on fuel.

“Germany did it, they cut it by 25p to try to ease the cost of living crisis, they did it, France did it too, Spain did it, Ireland did it too.

“It’s a fantastic situation there, but here we continue to ignore those calls for some unknown reason because the government is tracking something like an extra £4 billion in VAT due to these high prices over the past few years. last 12 months.

“But everything on the road, everything in your studio, everything in your house… Everything arrived by truck.

“And the food is trucked in and exactly what you mean the impact on inflation is huge and that 25p cut in Germany that they just did in the last three months they’ve had a drop half a percent of inflation.

“So it’s not rocket science if you reduce the cost of distribution, you’re going to reduce the cost of goods, which means you’re going to reduce inflation.”
