Default Hyperbole? not from a cyclist, surely? Pavement cyclist claims aterrorist in a van weapon came near him.

“Terrorism is defined as a violent action for political purposes. When
people shout things at me like ‘pay your road tax’, is that not
political? Is that not terrorism?

Are Fedex drivers required to personally pay the carbon tax (aka VED) on their company vehicles?

A. There is no carbon tax on vehicles in the UK.

B. Fedex drivers tend to be self-employed owner-drivers, so their
*business* pays all relevant taxes as costs to the business (and as
reductions to the profit).

So... sort of "no", "no" and "yes".

Nope - many pay nothing at all.

Some people call it VED.
Some, exceptionally low IQ, people call it Road Tax


B. Fedex drivers tend to be self-employed owner-drivers,


Can you provide some evidence for that?


So... sort of "no", "no" and "yes".


I think simply 'No' will suffice.
Remember the cyclist probably owns a taxed car, the difference is the cyclist's car is likely to be parked off road on private property unlike the minimum wage Fedex driver.

That is all.

You know nothing about IQ, clearly.

B. Fedex drivers tend to be self-employed owner-drivers,

I know it to be true because a Fedex driver who is a good friend tells
me about the way the drivers relate to the company.

What more do you want? His name and address?

You won't get those.

So... sort of "no", "no" and "yes".


I think simply 'No' will suffice.


Are you sure?

What does that (even if it were true) have to do with anything?

What term would you suggest for VED?

You are now claiming that if I want to become a Fedex driver I have to buy a specific type of motor vehicle, have it painted in the company colours and wear the company uniform?

Why would anyone do that?

You won't get those.


I am not interested in your 'friend with benefits'.


So... sort of "no", "no" and "yes".

What is "VED"?

B. Fedex drivers tend to be self-employed owner-drivers,


Can you provide some evidence for that?

You are now claiming that if I want to become a Fedex driver I have to buy a specific type of motor vehicle, have it painted in the company colours and

wear the company uniform?

Have you always had such a vivid imagination?

Why would anyone do that?

You won't get those.


I am not interested in your 'friend with benefits'.


What are you bleating about now?

So... sort of "no", "no" and "yes".


I think simply 'No' will suffice.

Out of a total vehicle fleet size of 40,000 vehicles that is really
impressive. How many cargo bicycles do they intend to use?

"Taxed car"?

You just said that those who didn't call it VED have a low IQ.

Have you got a low IQ/
