Heard petrol is going to possibly go up by 2p a litre AGAIN

When are we going to start striking and protesting.

Surely the petrol price is the same as couple of years ago when the last strike was on ??

The reason people arent protesting is because the English are nothing more than sheep and follow what ever they are told :rollin

Sure that'll make a difference with the world's oil traders that are pushing the price of a barrel through the roof >D

The Govermin know, or think they know, that people (especially truckers) will only start getting really grumpy if fuel prices rise above the magic £1 per litre.

I'd rather it rise 2p than 2 euros

Anyone else glad that Europe has blown up in such a big *****-0ff way

If the Man. United fans showed as much energy in opposing gas hikes as they did Mr. Glazer - maybe the government would think about reducing the fuel duty...which alone is more than the Canadian's pay for a litre.

But then the yob's wouldn't get their weekly "salary", then they'd really be riots.

I heard on radio this morning that the average is 86.0p per litre and the highest recorded average was 86.5p - most garages I noticed on my way home were showing 88.9p. $60+ a barrel was mentioned iirc

The main gripe during the last fuel dispute was that GB had left the tax escalator (??) introduced by the tories in place. Since then petrol taxes have only been in line with inflation (I think) and road tax actually dropped for some cars.

I am not sure, but I think fiddle just said something slightly favourable to the government. I suggest that nobody speak to him or even acknowledge his existence until he repents.

I hope it is perfectly clear to all CUK regulars that, without tax, fuel would be free or even that they would pay us to take it away. Without tax, using it would vastly reduce greenhouse gases and very soon we would have Blue Whales merrily disporting themselves in the Medway.

Bugger bugger bugger - just read it again and it did rather let them off the hook didn't it. Sometimes truth hurts. They are all still bastards though.

FFS, this is a contractor's forum. Petrol should be £5 quid a litre in order to get plebs out of their cars, so that the streets are clear for my BMW X5.

BMW X5 is a plebs car.

Hardly helped their cause, did it?

Personally, I advocate nude protest (those fox hunters had some great totty parades). All totty should protest naked outside No. 10.

Why should Man U fans be responsible for starting a fuel protest?

It would give them a chance to earn all the state benefits they draw.

...or is that Liverpool fans?

"Because being predominatly Chav like they voted this shower in."

Well that is bollox! I thought the common trait about Man U fans is that most are prawn sadwich eaters from Surrey. Not your typical chav in my opinion. Surely when you are talking about Chavs you mean your typical dole scrounging scoucer or each and every Burbery coated Gooner.

I'm not too sure about that. Is there a distinction to be made between chavs and pikeys? As far as I'm concerned they're all scum and should be treated as one and the same. However, due to falling standards in this once fair nation, it is possible for plumbers and builders to earn vast amounts of money (cash in hand x state benefits x earnings from crime). As a result these filthy degenerates are able to buy whopping mansions in Surrey. As for wine...how many times have I heard some Jodie Marsh look-a-like describing the joys of wine?

Planetit, I'm not posh, but chavs should know their place (ideally beneath the boot).

When they talk about wine whay they mean is Thunderbird. It's the Chavs' Chateau de laTour.

Do they still sell Thunderbird? Had a sip once at a mate's BBQ - his wife is a complete and utter chav - nearly threw up on the spot.

well if you're not posh (like me) you shouldn't be drinking wine. Know your place WageSlave.

I seem to have spun off my own inadverdant thread.

Perhaps Man U aren't the best crowd to protest. They all eventually caved in and bought season tickets anyway.
Just the same way England stopped resisting the Royals...and now look at what the English are left with. Sadly in this "current environement" - protestors would be categorised as terrorists and placed under house arrest. And the Chavs would be left ...do whatever Chav's do...shop and vote Labour.
