The government, in their infinite wisdom, have decided that they will charge all landline owners 50p per month for the priviledge of using the phone. That's an extra £6 per year that you and I will be taxed!!
They claim that this will raise £175m annually, which will enable them to invest in future telephony networks. They seem to have forgotten the people with phones, but don't use the internet.
This seems, to me, that this is a way to nationalise the internet and is totally unacceptable.
I have created this poll to try to gauge reaction - it's just for fun, and I'll publish the results next week.
