Riots on the streets can be persuasive.

I'd say they will end up canceling the tax altogether, like it happened here. The idiots are beginning to understand that raising the cost of energy is not palatable with the electorate.

It can be if it is offset with other taxes. However, governments want to add new taxes to existing taxes because they are effectively broke!

Like the GST. Not all taxes that were supposed to have been replaced by a GST were cancelled.
