Returning to the UK..Fill up with fuel ! .

Having just returned I am so glad I filled up before I got on the ferry.  The situation re getting fuel near me is getting really bad with our only garage in the village closed because of no fuel ... Even Sainsbury 's and four other  garages I have passed this morning are closed off  with cones .   I have taken the decision to keep the fuel I have in my car for my use and have decided  not to do my  3 days voluntary hospital car service driving next week  Now patients appointments will have to be cancelled ...as no arrangements have been made for the likes of me to draw fuel to take them in ...   What a crazy situation   !

Yes it shows just how stupid society has become there isn't a strike even planed yet. No ones stocking on food yet because they are all to thick to realise the lorry's won't be delivering without fuel.

A crazy situation indeed Frederick, just what "call me Dave" and his old Etonian mates wanted. Still; I will fill up in Boulogne tomorrow as usual before entering the tunnel and will  have enough to get back to Boulogne on Monday, happy days.

And some garages are rationing fuel so if "you not be from round 'ere", you may be refused fuel ...

People are behaving extremely foolishly in their panic. yesterday when filling up my car I noticed that the BMW in front of me only put in about 5 litres. He probably used half of that driving to and from the filling station.

I still can't believe a senior cabinet minister would suggest storing in jerry cans. Already a woman has received 40 degree burns when decanting petrol in her kitchen when flames from the gas cooker set the fumes alight and set fire to her clothing.

Yes but it's only right in the natural order of things that the stupid should die first. I bet she gets a no win no fee solicitor to gain compensation. I don't like any politician but seeing how stupid the voters have become society is doomed unless Simon Cowell speaks up to save us.

No cabinet minister said 'forget common sense and basic education' and while I feel deeply sorry for her, why in GGE did she ever think of doing that where there was a naked flame ? Truly tragic...
