Fuel Protests

#1
A Road Haulage Association convoy of about 30 vehicles is also due to create a rolling blockade on major roads in Scotland from 1000 GMT on Saturday.

The government has warned unlawful blockades should not be tolerated. Police plan to monitor the situation.

Rebates

Peaceful demonstrations by a group calling itself Transaction 2007 are planned outside oil refineries at Stanlow (Ellesmere Port, Cheshire), Fawley (Southampton), Jarrow (Tyne and Wear), Purfleet (Essex), Cardiff, Immingham (North East Lincolnshire), and Grangemouth (Falkirk).

These are also due to start at 1000 GMT.

Not surprising that the RHA is taking this action, but in the week before Christmas, can't see this building into anything other than a token protest.

Can a US ARRSE'r give us a quick update on the pump price in the USA? Always an entertaining comparison.

The BBC has got this one wrong, it’s not the RHA "RHA Fuel Protest Statement"

It’s an organisation called Transaction 2007 which some of the members are part of the RHA, the RHA has even made attempts to distance themselves from these protests.

I wish they would do away with road tax ( I mean it doesn't even go on the travel infrastructure). That way you pay for the miles you drive, and if it is a gas guzzler.... fecking horrible yank expression. you will still pay more than a homo greeny.
