Default UK e-petition

At the government site:

Restore a rolling 30 year-old exemption to VED, for classic vehicles - e-petitions

you will find the following e-petition: worth signing?

George

Restore a rolling 30 year-old exemption to VED, for classic vehicles

Responsible department: Her Majesty's Treasury

Re-introduce a 30 year rolling vehicle excise duty exemption scheme, for classic vehicles. For too long now the tax exemption of classic cars has been frozen, to only apply to those manufactured before 1973. History did not simply stop in 1972. These are not cars which are driven everyday but rather on sunny weekends, to attend enthusiast shows etc.. It is vitally important that we help to preserve this important part of British motoring history.

Hi
FBHVC. has asked people not to sign this petition. In the current economic climate it will focus the wrong kind of attention on our older cars and might actually set the argument and lobbying back and could prejudice any future change.
It might even remind the treasury about this and prompt them to remove it altogether.
