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

They should now provide provision to draw fuel for those of us who are working within the community providing a service to those in need  in the event of a strike . It only takes instruction to designated garages to provide fuel within our working area  on production of our photo ID cards and garages told not sell right out before they close to the  general public  .
This was not happening last week I was annoyed  so they got an E mail ... The sad thing  is  heaven help us if it takes Emails from such as us to remind them we exist and what we do ....and can not do without fuel .... serving the community  .

No, the strikers should be made responsible for the consequences of their acts. The strike is a vicious political act and unnecessary and before they withdraw labour, the strikers should know that they are going to cause real hardship even put lives at risk. These are not poor downtrodden workers but well paid opportunists.

I was very impressed to see the last time there was fuel shortage in France that a lot of the garages imposed a 20 Euro limit on each car. I'm sure that helped to combat the "fuel grabbing" that has taken place in the UK last week. Although it appears that this has now eased.
