Perhaps when George returns from his travels he could enlighten us over the
state of things in Eire. I was told that at one time (maybe still) the yearly
excise duty was dependent on the engine capacity and was quoted a figure of
around 500GBP for a 2 litre car. Knowing the Irish sense of humour, this might
have been a wind-up, but at the time people working in Dublin in similar jobs
to myself were earning some 15000GBP per annum and where paying 50% tax. Mind
you, there was no MOT and I saw some fords in Dublin that could have passed
for Fred Flintstones car.
