The threat of a gas tanker-driver strike has brought out the best in British political double-speak to calm a fearful nation. Queues Lines are forming at every and any gas station as fears of an Easter-break strike has the blokes back in blighty filling up every and any container they can to stockpile petrol. In response to a panic-worthy statement by Cabinet Minister Francis Maude who said "People should take precautions, just in the way the Government has taken precautions doing some sensible planning," and drivers should keep their tanks at least two-thirds full in anticipation of a shortage, sales of Jerry cans have risen this week. This pre-emptive stockpile-driven panic-buying to avoid real panic-buying should the strike occur spurred some calming words from Energy secretary Ed Davey "I don't think they (drivers) need to queue, I don't think they need to change their behavior very much,". Too late mate!

hug.gif Hej Shadow! coffeetime.gif Pfft, at least they are freaking out at the gas pumps rather than airplanes. I wonder if the UK will end up with a Department of Petroleum Security over this? 15.gif

chuckle.gif P and I were talking about this on the egg shortage thread yesterday. It's ridiculous! bored.gif

First, ministers appeared to give conflicting advice on how motorists should cope with threatened fuel shortages caused by a looming strike by militant tanker drivers.

hug.gif Hej JR oh yeah they have already, they're 'accelerating' training rates for military truck drivers to deliver fuel in case the strike goes ahead. A rookie with no experience jamming an 18 speed with 40,000 kg of gasoline thru downtown London uhoh.gif chuckle.gif

Now police force orders petrol stations to CLOSE and rationing starts: Total chaos at the pumps as minister tells drivers to top up when their tanks are half full... then says, no, two-thirds full!
