Parking Tax At Hospitals Now £3 After 20 Minutes

Green bin tax, parking tax, all extra to the council and income tax we all pay. They are called fees and charges, we know them as tax. Who do they think they are fooling? Who are they? Officers and politicians who can’t balance the books by spreading taxes equally, so they introduce double funding. Parish councils charge precepts, but not everyone in a parish benefits from what they charge, more selective double funding.

As reported here  [click to read] it is now £3 for NHS parking for up to two hours, and after car park maintenance any surplus goes to patient care, which is already funded.

But Rosie Cooper says “We need to fund free parking in NHS England – for patients, staff and visitors – by increasing the tax on private medical insurance premiums”. Does it matter where it comes from, so long as it is a public service it is a public cost? Parking charges ruin high street businesses, they ruin health service visits for the sick and needy. They don’t ruin 400+ Derby Street all day car parking places for WLBC staff because we fund them as a job perk. It’s time we didn’t!
