    Hi Chris

    Re your appearance on GMTV this morning on road works. I have written to David Willets on the subject of road tax and the condition of British roads and got a very unsatisfactory reply.

    The Brits pay through the nose for the privilege of using our roads, then when we go into Europe we pay to use the roads in the form of Tolls in one form or the other. Our roads are mostly damaged By large trucks from Europe which come over here with there tanks filled with cheap fuel and pay no road charges in this country, competing unfairly with our own haulage companies who pay road tax and then pay tolls on European roads. If we set up toll booths at all our ports of entry and made a one of charge to all none resident vehicles as the do in Austria and Switzerland. This money could then ease the pressure off the British motorist and help pay for the badly needed repairs to our roads.

    I hope this is something you could think you could take up with your contacts as one voice dose not get very fare.

    Kind regards

    David Castle

    Chris – Do you remember 30 years ago in North Yorkshire when you were at Radio York? He was a large chap called Arnold that went on a diet and created a giant 6ft Carrot called Herbie. Believe it or not we are now planning his 30th Birthday in October this year. We are contacting all the people that were around in those days. Could we have a chat about this please? Best wishes, Arnold Fewell
