The air we breathe is set to be taxed as part of a revolutionary ­Government plan to raise more money.

Rural folk will have to cough up the most under the new charge – already dubbed a gasp bill – while those living in our polluted cities will be expected to pay less.

The Air Tariff Control system will assess charges in different areas of the country and every household will be liable for payments, which will be administered by local authorities and added to council tax bills.

The project, to be run by a private firm under a five-year licence, is designed to fund air quality improvement initiatives.

One senior air technician at the Environment Agency said: “Air is natural but, just like water, it is a finite resource that we have to manage sensibly. Water quality and supply improved with privatisation and there is no reason why this should not have the same impact on air. The aim is to allow everyone to enjoy high-quality breathing air.”

Blatant outright misleading LIE!

The global water crisis and the commodification of the world's water supply

Absolutely tragic what privatization of water does.

The whole theory is kind of stupid.

They should be taxing bad air so people can't afford to produce it.

if this happened it would be the poll tax all over again....nevermind the air tax - how about bringing down the water bills. three hundred and fifty pounds a year is a frickkin legal robbery for a country that has plenty of rain and inadequate infrastructure. just like the roads.....we pay tax for the upkeep and building of the transport infrastructure but none of the money gets spent on such a thing. Now we are being told toll roads will pay for what our tax should have already paid for....

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?
