Fuel Protest-Time to Act now, join the convoy.

So you’re protesting in Scotland and delivering your fuel price petition to the Scottish Parliament?

That would that be the same Scottish Parliament that doesn’t control fuel duty anyway and is already screaming at Darling that they want a share of the increased oil revenues in order that they can subsidise fuel in Scotland.

If you wanted to send a message to Alistair Darling wouldn’t you be better delivering the petition to his constituency office? 22A Rutland Square, Edinburgh, EH1 2BB, 0131 476 2552

    Maybe you missed the point – Alistair Darling is the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the person who’s responsible for setting fuel duty rates. He’s also the MP for Edinburgh South West and you’ll be almost driving past his constituency office to get to Holyrood.

    Presenting a petition to an organisation that already agrees with you and can do nothing to help seems a bit of a waste of time and money to me.

    So Scotland needs to remain part of the UK in order to benefit from the defence of the UK armed forces?

    In case they’re invaded by Norwegians or something?

    The Irish manage to run their own economy and ‘defend’ their country against Norweigans even without the oil revenues which the Scottish want their share of.

    If you were to boycott McDonalds, Burger King and KFC would it bring the price of potatoes down?

    Look hard enough for news coverage? Like listening to the national news or searching on Google? The reason it’s not got a 10 minute spot on every news report is that fuel protests are becoming quite common and they’re not having a great deal of effect so far.
