Re: Fuel Protest

I queued for fuel this morning. I was careful not to block the road for any
'shoppers'.
Nearly every filling station in my locale is out of fuel. I only know of one
selling diesel.
I filled my tank and two 20litre 'Jerry' cans too. I use my Landie for
work - I'm self-employed. I now have enough fuel for the week, without which
I cannot earn a living. If this makes me a 'sheeplike parasitic wanker',
then fine! I've been called much worse!

I don't think you would be in that group
I know a lot of people in your position that had to queue behind some
twat that needed to fill their car to the brim and managed to get about
6 quid in I mean FFS
We had a car in for test last night with a leaking fuel tank
when it failed the owner said it only leaks when it's full and
we don't normally fill it past half as we hardly use it but with the fuel
strike on WHAT FECKING FUEL STRIKE?

These are the same useless wankers, like Martin said, that rush out and buy
15 loaves of bread when they see 1 flake of snow just in case
personally I would take them out and shoot the sheeplike parasitic wankers

sorry time for a valium

This I'm alright Jack F*ck everyone else attitude is what's making this
country into a shit hole anyway.Why fill up with petrol there is no shortage
and no-one is going to stop delivering it either. I,m self employed too but
if there was no petrol its the same for your customers aswell so you with
your full tank can go to work but your customers can't because youvé bought
it all so they can't earn any money to pay you.

Can you imagine if we went back to the seventies with Power cuts, strikes
etc I don't think the modern Britain would cope.

Have heard we are letting prisoners out to go fill their cars with petrol so
they don't have to walk home from the pub!

My view not a personal attack on anyone.

Well, I'm also self employed, though 60% of my work is done at home, I
saw no need to rush out and fill-up, though I did fill up with LPG
just because I like to fill it up when I've got nothing else on as the
place I get it from is 12 miles away.
Petrol tank is about half full..
Wife filled up last night but only because her car was empty, and when
it's empty we fill it up.

There _are_ people panic buying, therefore the petrol stations _are_
running out of fuel. No fuel in petrol station = local fuel shortage.

This is caused by an organised fuel protest, it's not the breakdown of
society. I'm sure everyone will be able to pay their bills next week.

I'm looking forward to a few days of gentle anarchy. Although I am a
little worried that the SIII only has quarter of a tank of diesel, how
will I drive the baron wastelands like Mad Mad with only quarter of a tank?

Yeah, that's that I was getting at in a confused kind of way. This _is_
happening, however ridiculous the reasons. It is just a normal
(justified) reaction to an expected problem.
There is nothing to be gained by sitting at home with no fuel, thinking
that your actions are teaching the more stupid people (as they drive
past with a full tank of fuel). The people with fuel are not necessarily
"I'm alright Jack F*ck everyone else" kinds, they just want to avoid the
inevitable problems.

The people who left New Orleans by car could have been criticised for
blocking the roads and buying all the petrol. The people saying "don't
panic, wait for more weather reports, I've seen worse" were not so
clever when the winds came.
