Fuel Protest

A go slow on the M60/M62? That would be about as effective as a go slow at J11 to J6 at rush hour Gill. Nobody would notice the difference.

    I’m just watching it on the traffic cameras – there a three police cars in front of them and the bikes are bunching up behind them. The police are actually keeping them travelling slower than they would be.

    Personally I think this is a misguided waste of time, money and effert but if you’re all set on the idea you might find this interesting.

    If there’s a d notice on it what are they reporting here, here, here, here, here?

    Fuck me. Do you not understand? IT’S ON THE BBC WEBSITE, syndicated by Associated Press, on hundreds of sites that you can find via Google, on all the major newspaper websites. I’VE EVEN POSTED SOME LINKS.

    How is that suppressed by a D Notice in any way?

    The reason that it’s not headline news is because it was a minor protest for a few hours on a Friday afternoon when there were no mainstream reporters present. It delayed a few tanker loads of fuel by a couple of hours – and that’s only because the tanker drivers are about to strike for a ‘fair wage’ of £37k or something.
