The reports are growing that fuel protests are back and there planing to block -ad Stanlow oil refinery in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.

How did the channels deal with this 10 years ago?

And that's if you live in an area with public transport. Shame they ripped up two-thirds of the rail network 45 years ago...

And even if you don't drive, fuel-prices push up the prices of everything else-- prices at supermarkets for instance. Alas haulauge companies don't get discounts on diesel.

I don't care. Wish they'd put the price of fuel up more to get everyone of their arses and onto public transport.


If fuel prices go up, then bus and train fares go up too Confused


Duh! Obviously the government have the power to put a lower duty on fuel for public transport and road hauliers.


I'd imagine that's what some of these blockaders are protesting about, the fact the govt hasn't.

[[Mod note: Probably one for Metropol as it the discussion appears to be more about politics than TV.]]
