A welcome response from the Chancellor but......

Reacting to news in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement that the January 3p rise in fuel duty is to be postponed, Quentin Willson, spokesman for FairFuelUK said, ‘This is a victory for FairFuelUK but only a stay of execution. We've saved the UK 9p since March in proposed fuel duty rises and we are now the gatekeepers of fuel sanity for this country. We're going to carry on pressurising this government to keep duty down and reduce it significantly. If we don't they'll hike it up again the first chance they get''.
 
Peter Carroll who runs FairFuelUK said, ‘Adding another 3p a litre at this critical time for the economy would have been economic madness. It's a little like a sick man being told that he was going to get worse, but then being told he's not! Like the sick man, the economy is still in a bad way. Petrol & diesel remain far too expensive. We will be fighting on to try and make the Government understand that the economy needs an actual cut in fuel duty

A cut in fuel duty is needed immediately. If the government wants to save the UK from a second recession, then they need to make an impact on the average persons pocket. Reducing fuel duty is the key as that will allow businesses and individuals to benefit. Less money to fill the tank means less cost for transportation which will have a knock-on effect to ALL INDUSTRY! It's not rocket science.

Why bail out banks when they're insured?
It's our money and our lives they're playing with!
They are there to serve us, not vice versa.

Not good enough. Direct action - peaceful, obviously - is essential.

Every 1 penny in fuel duty, actually raises for the government 1.2 pence. This is because they charge VAT on the fuel duty.

Us motorists are easy targets because fuel is such an essential item in our daily lives. Its about time the government stopped preying on us, and started taxing those people whoi actually caused this mess in the first place.

Re your fair fuel sticker, I support the idea.
The sticker is not forceful enough.
Suggest a sticker something like
Petrol £2 a gallon
Tax £3 a gallon
VAT £1 a gallon
Labour, Consesrvative, Liberal Democrat
Taxing UK to a standstill
I have had enough!!

And if there is a fuel blockade I will be there.
