Country refuses to trade with countries which have already refused to trade with it.

I'm confused: what is it I'm supposed to be getting outraged about?

Bollocks to them, I've got a new pair of boots.

Couldn't give a toss. Unless I need to pay even ****ing more for petrol. £1.37 a litre, disgusting, just gives the government another excuse to ramp up the price a bit and strangle motorists even more.

You're supposed to get outraged about the fact that they've refused to trade with countries which refused to trade with them. If that makes any sense.

Unless I have been misinformed, very little of the UK`s oil comes from there. It should not affect our pump price.
Hopefully it won't, but I really won't be surprised if it goes up. Although it does seem to be creeping up every fortnight or so here.

Our oil may not come from there, but it will put an increased demand on the oil we do buy, that will put up prices too.

Basiclly we are screwed, but we all knew that a few years ago anyway.
