Hi Phil,
I got that "Common Law, right to travel", from the attached website.
Feel free to pick it to pieces, I know that I can trust you to do it fairly, and with your customary panache.

Coming into the thread a bit late, as a non car owner and dreadful driver when I was, where does Road Tax go to then? I honestly thought it contributed to repairs to roads, maintainence etc.?

Short answer: general taxation. Longer answer: The BBC explains Road Tax

It goes nowhere Jan, because no-one pays it. It ceased to exist in 1937.

And vehicle excise tax re motorists etc whereas cyclists have completely free ride in essence especially with the Santander scheme. And in today's hectic London traffic surely it is more VIP than ever to display vehicle
or implement registration badges for a point of witness.

Thanks for the link, Tom.

It's after dinner, and I've spent five hours travelling home from work today, so I'm not as sharp as sometimes but, looking at that stuff, it looks like the petitioner is asserting the common law right, but that the responses (eg 87608 Kenneth Heskin.pdf) point out the permissory nature of the license, and add extra responsibilities to tax the vehicle as appropriate.

I can't see that they confirm they confirm the 'common law' right that 'Kenneth Heskin' asserts, nor any other right. Have I missed something?

You're kidding right?

Huh? You pay for using those Santander bikes, no? It's not the user's concern what happens with that money. Apart from that - registration badges/some kind of recognisable number plate for bicycles are a definite must.

That's fighting talk eDWaRD, I like your style, and you're talking my language, however, when the lieutenant blows his whistle for us to go "over the top", if it's okay with you, can I walk closely behind you, using your body as a human shield?
Poking the cyclists hornet nest is great fun, their sting is ineffectual, nay, non-existent, but the annoying buzzing sounds that usually ensue when they're disturbed can be maddening.
