Abolish the London Congestion Charge to get London working

I would abolish the London Congestion Charge in its entirety because it is a tax on the poor, a tax on the worker, a tax on the business and in accordance with the Turnpike Act 1683 the revenue generated is not spent on the roads but public transport which is fraudulent.

The law that needs to be abolished is the Road User Charging (Charges & Penalty Charges) (London) Regulations 2001 which may have reduced traffic a little and encouraged bicycle use but at £8 or perhaps £10 a day is totally unacceptable and a rip-off. This does not discourage use but prohibits use of the zone.

Anyway the charge is not an access charge but a road toll because buses, cyclists and the like don't have to pay it! Never mind the fact that there are computer problems with the system , number-plate cloning, parking problems outside the zone and the like.

Why is this idea important?
