to Labour Party

[Daily Mail-Thursday, February
A GERMAN firm set to cash in on the
Government's latest motoring tax is today revealed as a donor to the
Labour Party and a think-tank that has championed the scheme.
Frankfurt -based T-Systems which has
pioneered technology to spy on motorists by satellite and charge them
for every mile driven, paid Labour Party £10,575 last July 
The firm, part of Deutsche Telekom,
also gave £45,000 to the Institute of Public Policy research, a main
cheerleader for the road-pricing plan.
The Conservatives raised questions
about its financial support as the row over the proposed scheme
The numbers of drivers to have signed a
petition against the plan on No10's web-site neared 1.5 million last
Some Ministers privately fear that
charging motorists by the mile could turn into Labour's equivalent of
the POLL TAX.
One senior Government source said:
'Drivers do not like TOLLS, its as
simple as that. We are making a real mess of selling this as an idea.'
Former Home Secretary David Blunkett
suggested pressing on with the plans could cost Labour the next
Tory chairman Francis Maude -[you
remember him it was his colleague Douglas Hurd then the British Foreign
Secretary who on signing the 1992 Maastricht Treaty was heard to
better find out what we 've just signed'
-obviously he felt his colleague at the
signing was also as they say 'in the dark'
[Tory chairman Francis Maud] said:
'There are questions to be answered
when a company that would be in a pole position to bid for a national
road-pricing scheme has been making substantial donations to the Labour
party and Tony Blair's favourite think-tank.'
[What we would like to ask Mr Maud and
his previous colleague at Maastricht in 1992 is it true that bribes were
taken by the signatories of the TREATY-as specified in the:

A receiver on the vehicle informs a
'toll collect' centre which charges drivers.
The idea of a national road pricing
scheme has been mooted for a decade. Supporters claim it would cut
congestion and exhaust emissions.
But it has suddenly emerged as official
The Blairite IPPR helped put the idea
on Labour's agenda. It has run a year-long project examining how road
charging could be sold to voters.
The budget for the project was
£135,000, around a third of which was paid by T-Systems [the
German-Frankfurt based technology company]
The firm already operates a
£2billion-a-year German system where HGV's are charged 13p a mile on
The IPPR dismissed suggestions it had
been influenced by money from T-Systems, adding it had published ten
reports calling for congestion and road charging since 1989.
Of its £10,000 for Labour listed in its
'register of donations', a spokesman for T-Systems said:
'This was an event marketing cost we
were charging to have a stand at last year's Labour Conference -not what
we consider a donation.' [So that's alright then?]
Of the firm's support for the IPPR, he
'T-Systems was one of three companies
that sponsored this research.'

WHY WE ASK YOUR SUPPORT
When we first saw the petition we reasoned
that it had no chance of success from No 10 but we supported it
in order to gauge the number of Britons who would publicly put
their name to a list which stated that they wished to
RENUNCIATE EU CITIZENSHIP and retain only BRITISH.-THAT
IS WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. Some might say that to hide behind a
negative premise is both cowardly and playing into the hands of
the EU FEDERALISTS. DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT-
Place your vote so ALL can see that YOU CARE. about
YOUR COUNTRY and YOUR FREEDOM.
