The "Westminster Muppet Show" have surpassed themselves this week by causing the public to panic buy fuel. The media keep bombarding us with imagines of massive ques at petrol station up and down county.
Do the Government live in the same reality as the rest of us? Somehow I very much doubt it. They should have called for calm as there is not treat of fuel tanker drivers going on strike in the foreseeable future. Instead they advised people to keep their tanks full and even suggested that hoarding fuel at home is a good idea! The result has been wide spread panic which in it self will cause fuel shortages. Worse still a woman in York has managed to blow herself up trying to pour petrol from one container to another in her kitchen while cooking on a gas stove. She received 40% burns and has been admitted to a specialist burns unit, while her family home lays in charred ruins.
The only possible reason I can think of for the Governments ridiculous behaviour is to raise even more revenue from the much punished British car owners. Apparently the public purse has benefited from an extra £32m in fuel duty over the last 48 hours, due to all the extra fuel sold at the pumps.
