The humble tax disc. Annoying motorists for 93 years.
But after almost a century it's going to be phased out.
This is good news for most people. Apart from those in Britain's thriving tax disc holder manufacturing industry.
Gary specialises in novelty tax disc holders, retailing at just £6 each.
One of the visual symbols which makes us British is going to disappear should the government vote the changes through.
Out of around 200,000 reported cases of tax disc evasion, 160,000 were reported by the general public So who's going to report the tax dodgers now? More cameras on the roads and more police spot checks. Where is the chancellor's saving?In the new year, I was going to look for larger premises and take on some staff. When you do something original, it attracts a lot of imitators and counterfeiters who really threatened my business. I was starting to win that battle in the last couple of months to find that the Chancellor wiped that out with a single announcement.
I've lost a fantastic innovative business selling novelty tax disc holders. Other companies will make employees redundant. I thought the budget was going to help me, not ruin me.
