Can't beat a good protest,
and when Less Tax On Fuel
(catchy..) start then this definitely won't
be a good protest. It'll be about as much fun as their last one, although their Forum's
good for a laugh and will let you voice support when you're stuck at home cause the pumps have ran out as a result of their actions!
While everyone I know agrees that we pay too much for petrol here in the UK, blocking the roads and disrupting supplies isn't going to help. I don't know of anyone
who supports a return to the protests of 2000.
And besides, there are some motorways in the UK where they'll be lucky to reach 20mph at rush hour. They might even speed things up..
