It’s the fault of the people panic buying.

However, the most dangerous leftists of all may be certain oversocia- lized types who avoid irritating displays of aggressiveness and refrain from advertising their leftism, but work quietly and unobtrusively to promote collectivist values, “enligh- tened” psychological techniques for socializing children, dependence of the individual on the system, and so forth.

He is right, but as you say, I am not sure how pointing it out will improve things. It is what it is at this stage.

He could try blaming the media, e.g. a simple story about a few garages closing was given exaggerated coverage etc…but then I guess they have to try and keep the media onside.

Yeah, but he didn’t mean it, that’s just Hertfordshire slang

I guess that allowing them to travel extra miles without breaks is causing them to use up all the fuel?

Not quite sure how they are meant to do it without using any, mind!

He's almost bad, innit?

'Shapps's brother, Andre Shapps, is a musician who was a member of Big Audio Dynamite (BAD) between 1994 and 1998, playing keyboards. Their cousin Mick Jones was a key figure in British punk rock of the late 1970s, and a founding member of both the Clash and Big Audio Dynamite.'

Come on. Why should people effectively employed pay sod all tax by claiming to be a company?

They’re providing a flexible workforce to an industry that needs one. The self-styled ‘party of business’ really ought to brush up on it.
Also, take a look at the ‘sod all tax’ that a contractor pays and you might find it’s a different story to your perception.

It's 106 miles to Portman Road, we've got a full tank of gas, half a round of Port Salut, it's dark... and we're wearing blue tinted sunglasses.

There the little man sat, smirk firmly planted on his vacant face blaming everyone but the government. I had to laugh when he said there was no problem. It reminded me of the bloke in Libya in at the end of Gaddaffi’s time when he said the situation was fully under control, just as a rebel tank rolled into view behind him.

There was no petrol from Kent to Suffolk yesterday. Not a drop apart from possibly Copdock where there were some cars queuing. Telling me there is plenty of petrol in the country is nonsense, I bet there is plenty of petrol in Alaska. Neither is relevant if people have no access to it. There is a petrol crisis. A shortage. Lack of supply.

Blaming hauliers, people’s natural buying habits, media, RHA, this that and the other is a typical lack of taking responsibility. He is Minister for the Dept of Transport. Warnings of potential supply issues have been there for years (run up to Brexit) but he and his cronies were not interested. They still aren’t.

He can blame who he likes, he is accountable and if he had any decency would resign over this mess. But like the rest of the nose in the trough brigade, there’s no chance of that.
