the person who originally set up FairFuelUK I feel the need to respond to some
of the comments from people (particularly on Facebook and the FFUK Blog) expressing frustration or dissatisfaction at what
we are doing and how we are doing it, particularly in relation to the use of ‘direct action’.
FairFuelUK is funded and backed by four main organisations who have stated that they will not support ‘direct action’. I know from the postings that there are a few people who believe that ‘direct action’ is the right way forward. It is for them to follow this through either as individuals, or to support other groups who do advocate direct action, or, indeed, to form and develop such a group themselves.
The reason for putting up our recent posting about the subject of ‘direct action’ was to clarify beyond doubt that FairFuelUK does not support, cannot support and will not support it. We have always been clear on this point and believe that political pressure will ultimately bring dividends, whereas direct action will only inconvenience businesses and the public.
Whilst I understand the anger and frustration that the high price of fuel is causing, FairFuelUK is fighting along the lines set out by its backers. If you feel that ‘direct action’ is the way ahead, we are not the campaign group for you and we wish you good luck as I know that we ALL want the same result, considerably lower prices at the pumps.
