Logic obviously isn't your strong point. Nowhere does that say VED is
used to pay for the road. I can use the road tomorrow for nothing (roads
are free to use) it is the vehicle license to use the road that costs
not the road.

No. If you want to drive (or keep) a car on the road, that *car* must
have a tax disc. It is the vehicle keeper's responsibility to make sure
of this, not the driver's.
If it's that simple, stop getting it wrong.

Well they're changing their story, as so many TV detectives like to tell

Logic isn't my strong point? You cannot use the road without a tax disc.
Something I've noticed about you bike riding tossers, you all have this idea
that you somehow pay for using the roads, when you don't.
Do you have a tax disc for your push bike? No you don't. Therefore you are
a sponging freeloader. Simple isn't it?
