An annual Dog Tax of £100 a year per dog, this tax would include Insurance so dogs are not a burden on the NHS.
I have to pay for a fishing licence, so why not a dog licence?
Ridiculous. How would charging an amount that is more than treble my car tax, stop a dog pooping?
All it would do is frighten pensioners and anyone who hasn't got that sort of money into giving their companions up.
How mean can you get?
Many would just get dumped - or worse.
And you think that's a good idea!
If people didn't buy a licence at the old price of 7/6d, what makes you think they would cough up £100?
As for fishermen having to buy a licence, there's no comparison.
Quite right you have to pay to go out and murder fish for pleasure!
Besides that, the fish are hardly friends and lifelong companions to lonely people are they!
