There's been a movement on Facebook about fuel prices,a 7 day boycott of all but one retailer. Sounds like a plan,can't remember when it is though.

Fuck me that's cheap !

From my office window, the price at the garage opposite is 121.9 for petrol and 122.9 for diesel

There will be no proper fuel protests. As usual, the truckers and farmers will do it, get threatened with arrest and get fuck all support from anyone else, but they will get joe public whinging cos they got held up on the way to work/school/bingo.
Problem with this country is that they all sit back and let someone else protest for them, Apathy rules !!!

M40 services today 1.28, both deisel and un-leaded
anyone else remember when derv was a bit more but that was Ok because you got extra mileage?
The BP in milton keynes, has numbers printed that they stick up over the prices, it must be changing so often it makes it easier

Unfortuantly like most you are totally misinformed petrol is around 79p per litre the rest you pay is taxes the goverment imposes on us.

as a point of interest possibly - the last 4 years the government has added the loss of smokers revinue o ntop of an annual 3% rise per LTR

Don't forget the extra 2p a litre the guvmint put on fuel duty when they cut VAT to 15 per cent, then mysteriously failed to take off again when VAT went back up to 17.5 per cent...

not a case of being miss-informed creature
we all know that the government impose the taxes on fuel
but by boycotting the big companies two at a time don't you think that they will demand the government change their taxation policy on fuel and so reduce the price of fuel to the user
I do believe that the government would be inclined to listen to these big fuel companies a dam site more than they would listen to us................

Unfortuantly it wont work as it will be the fuel companies that will suffer and could force closures of forcourts.

The government wont care as it now's the people will moan n winge about it. but wont stand up for there rights. As it will inconvience them !!

look at the last time teh truckers tried to strike - in fact the last several times they just got no support just twats moaning on teh news that its gonna affect there shopping,work and there little brats. no thought even to say yep we gonna support them we will get out of our cars for a while and walk to were we gotta go !


I hate the french but I gotta admit when they protest they do it right.

Until the majority of people decide to do something about things and stick together then nothing will happen

They wont change policy as they can't change policy... International agreements and treaties make it impossible. Taxing is the cheapest and easiest way to force social change a government has!

If you fancy a day out in that London there's a demo ride on May 1st organised by the campaign against bike parking charges. They also regularly host the increasingly popular Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club. Check their website for details and videos worth sniggering at.

Here's a handy money saving tip...

Look for a corsa in the local car park, corsa's don't have a lockable fuel cap...

Insert one end of a four ft garden hose into the fuel tank and suck on the other end until the petrol comes out, put that end into a one gallon can, and you can probably fill your tank....

With practice you can do this without getting a mouth full of petrol, however this might also save you money at the pub....

So here's another, Take one loaf of bread, remove the crusts from each end, strain meths through the loaf and the colour will come out leaving you with something that may pass for cheap vodka.

Glad to help out in these hard times.

John

I agree with a lot of what has been said, the chelsea tractor bitches were whingeing all over the news about not being able to ferry Jerome and Jemima to school/ballet class/Crocheting circle, during the last blockade event. Those of us that work for a living supported or even joined in.

However,

Once Bliar had finished telling the country to fuck off 'coz he doesn't give a toss what the electorate think. He decided to make the blockading of fuel provision facilities (which includes gas refineries, oil refineries and petrol stations) an act of terrorism.

Dirty Liebour bastard.

got this email this morning......................




The price of oil is as low as it has been for a while, yet the oil companies have simply jacked their prices up and kept them high because we are used to it.
And the government won't do anything, as they rake in extra VAT for every increase. See what you think and pass it on if you agree with it
We are hitting 119.9 a litre in some areas now, soon we will be faced with paying 1.50 a ltr. - and unnecessarily so!
Philip Hollsworth offered this good idea:
This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy petrol on a certain day campaign that was going around last April or May! The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to hurt ourselves by refusing to buy petrol. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT,whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.

Please read it and join in!
Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a litre is CHEAP, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the market place not sellers. With the price of petrol going up more each day, we consumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see the price of petrol come down is if we hit someone in the pocket by not purchasing their Petrol! And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.

Here's the idea:
For the rest of this year DON'T purchase ANY petrol from the two biggest oil companies, ESSO and BP. If they are not selling any petrol, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit. But to have an impact we need to reach literally millions of Esso and BP petrol buyers. It's really simple to do!!

Now, don't wimp out at this point... keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!
I am sending this note to a lot of people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message
reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers! If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been
contacted! If it goes one level further, you guessed it... ..

THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!

Again, all You have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all.(and not buy at ESSO/BP) PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE 90p a LITRE RANGE.
If you don't already please please buy your petrol at: - Shell, Asda,Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Jet etc. Boycott BP and Esso.

* as long as the other stations are (hopefully) not supplied by Esso & BP.


Isn't that what I said ?
