Re: Fuel Protest

It all passes me by at the moment as my landie is going nowhere right now
without an engine.

It is a joke, because this fuel shortage is caused by the combination of a
natural disaster and the Yanks buying up whatever surplus they can on the
european spot market to make good there shortage of refining capacity.

Dropping the price won't make the stuff anymore available.

Yes but its a huge con we are a net exporter of petrol we are not short of
fuel .The increases are down to the folk who drill and pump the crude out of
the grown seeing a way of a quick profit ( talking up a shortage) and
according to the petrol companies thats not down to them who refine and
supply . my arse its the same people just different divisions and the
profits go to the same shower.
Billy Liar and his Brownosed assistant are sitting on their hands and
making speeches say something must be done newsflash- doing something is
what they are grossly overpaid for (not) doing get on with it or sod off.
