Lorry Drivers in Low Emission Zone Protest

London's new Low Emission Zone charges have been condemned as yet another stealth tax hitting lorry drivers who already face the burden of congestion charges, petrol duty and the ever-increasing number of tyres on their vehicles.

A spokesman for the protest, Mr Tach O'Graph, said,
"The cost of driving a lorry from Romania to London is already prohibitive. What Ken Livingston doesn't understand is that many lorry drivers simply cannot drive around the outside of the LEZ. There's only so much oxygen in these air-tight container lorries, if we go the long way round all the illegal immigrants in the back will asphyxiate."
