Howard Cox, Jason McCartney MP, Robert Halfon MPWe are delighted to say that the launch of our FairFuelUK Manifesto for Growth 2015 that highlights the Campaign Objectives listed below was a great success. Massive thanks to Jason McCartney MP (middle) and his team for sponsoring the launch in Westminster. There was a cross party turnout of 50 MPs with over 70 sending their apologies for not being able to attend but wishing good luck for the event. Every MP picked up their copy and those that did not make it had a copy put in their pigeon hole in Parliament this morning. The good news is the vast majority of these MPs ...

For months FairFuelUK has been a lone voice pleading for something to be done about oil price manipulation. UK regulators turned their backs on our calls for transparency (I personally wrote to them all) and at times we felt very isolated indeed. Now nobody should be in any doubt that our concerns were absolutely valid because the US Federal Reserve is calling for a ban on banks holding oil stocks. Investigators have proved that aggressive speculation in commodities by major finance houses has pushed up the prices of food, metal and fuel. This week a US trader was fined over $1 million and banned from ...

Quentin Willson of FairFuelUK and Robert Halfon MP with 4 other MPs delivered the Campaign's Call for a full open and transparent inquiry into Oil Pricing to the Offices of Fair Trading. The FairFuelUK petition was signed by 32,000 supporters.


The OFT issued a rapid response to FairFuelUK's Petition. Despite the Campaign's call for action the OFT statement says it seems that they will not be investigating the Oil Pricing Process even though millions of the UK Public and businesses want them to do exactly that. The OFT said: We continue to welcome any new information about ...

On Monday (July 15th) at 9am I will submit your petition at the Office of Fair Trading in London. I will hand in the 32,000 signatures from FairFuelUK supporters with Robert Halfon and other MPs to the OFT.The Petition calls for a full and transparent inquiry into the Oil Pricing process. Regulators in Europe and America are now actively investigating oil price manipulation, yet the UK it seems, does nothing.

We will be rallying outside the London offices of the OFT to object to the Government's surprising reluctance to act. We will also be unfurling a banner (see above) in ...

FairFuelUK and Robert Halfon MP can claim another victory. Last year I wrote to the Bank of England, FSA and OFT and asked them to investigate oil price manipulation. Robert brought the subject up in The Commons in an official question in The House. We were adamant that last year's spikes in oil prices had nothing to do with supply and demand and everything to do with market manipulation. Regulators in the UK told us there was no charge to answer and that the market was working normally. We were, to put it mildly, very angry.

 

But we battled on sure of our facts ...
