Rush for fuel shows what we think of Tory ministers’ promises

“‘Buy petrol as normal,’ says minister” – according to a BBC News headline.

So of course we all did the exact opposite. Motorists have been queueing at filling stations all day long, topping up their tanks and bringing Jerry cans along to be filled as well.

“Once bitten, twice shy”, as the old adage runs – and we have all been bitten far too many times by our worse-than-useless Tory government.

Remember: the Tories deliberately caused the crisis in fuel by making damned sure that Brexit would create a shortage of lorry drivers.

They have also caused huge problems with the import and export of goods, thereby ensuring that prices would skyrocket and you would not be able to afford them.

What kind of government – of Prime Minister – deliberately engineers the impoverishment of their entire nation?

Boris Johnson’s Tory government – that’s what kind!

I’m only sorry I’m unlikely to be around to see how the history books describe this perfect storm of stupidity in around 100 years’ time.

    Fascist tory dictatorship is determined to keep those ‘nasty EU foreigners’ out of their mythical white English country! This is why EU lorry drivers are denied right to even enter little england because they would contaminate our pristine non foreign soil!!

    Typical stupidity and arrogance from the fascist tory boys – tell public to purchase petrol as normal and thereby ensure supplies become as valuable as gold!

    But the fascist tories won’t brook any challenge to their arrogance and stance because no one is allowed to speak out against the rabid money grabbing criminal fascist tory boys!

    I’m certain the fascist tories will attempt to coerce historians to write a fake history of how wonderful little england was during the fascist tory dictatorship!

    Sheer co-incidence or careful planning and exploitation?
    Funny how the right-wing media wait until fuel is at it’s peak price and then creates a panic.

    The problem has been here for a while, why wait until now?
