Protest against Gordon Brown's Air Passenger Duty increase and fly for £10 all in - Just pay the APD!
APD is Gordon Brown's tax on air passengers, which he is doubling from £5 to £10 per passenger from 1st Feb. He claims this is good for the environment. This claim is rubbish. At £10 on the average Ryanair fare of £28, ordinary passengers will be forced to pay over 35% in tax. The £1bn that "Greedy Gordon" collects will go straight into his deep pockets and do nothing for the environment.
There is no justification for doubling taxes on ordinary holidaymakers when the Stern Report confirms that aviation accounts for just 1.6% of global green house gas emissions. It's about time that Greedy Gordon tackled the real causes of climate change, namely power generation (26% CO2) and road transport (18% CO2). Stealing this £1bn from ordinary holiday makers is just another tax which will do nothing for the environment.
