Blair Rejects a Tax!!

Tony Blair's Taxathon would seem to have come to an end (at least for today anyway). He has rejected an additional tax "to put tax on" air travel to cut pollution. Presumably Tony Blair hasn't bought a ticket recently as my last flight cost more in tax than in travel...

According to the Daily Telegraph article, Tony Blair stated:

It would take a "fairly hefty whack" for people to cut back on flights, adding that it would be hard to sell such a move.
