I agree that the dispute will do more harm than good but after saying that any action that puts pressure on the goverment must be more helpfull in the end.
It may be necessary for the tanker drivers to go ahead with the strike if it cannot be resolved.It will certainly bring the country to a halt, and will probably bring down this terrible Tory government, even if they capitulated and brought the taxation down. With the fuel costs down to an acceptable figure, ie. about £1.15 per litre, many jobs would be recovered and expansion will slowly creep up to a level a lot higher than t is now. Only a Labour government can do this now, as the Lib-Dems will never re-appear and the Tories, after showing their true colours, will be on the outside once more for at least two or three, maybe more terms. At least long enough to change their horrible POSH-BOY images.
The proposed increase are INSANE! They will loose more revenue that they will gain.I have allready
It is not up to any Union led strikers to "bring down" any Government especially when it 's members total about 2000, it is up to the electorate at The General election time to do it. If more people voted at elections may be we would have a strong Government in power to actually be able to carry it's policies out.
Three years ago I was paying 97p a litre (diesel) now paying £1.43 a litre (petrol) increase of over 47% - STAGGERING AMOUNT, frightening!
