As the cost of Diesel in the UK edges closer to £1.40 per litre there has been a resurgence in calls for the public to fight back against these crippling costs by way of some form of protest.
As you will know if you read this blog on a regular basis, I travel over 86 miles per day to my job and back, and I am currently spending £13 per day to complete this trip. Only 4 years ago It cost me £9 per day!.
I remember the fuel protests that took place a few years ago which,although they did cause me a few problems due to lack of fuel supplies, also gave me a feeling of satisfaction in the fact that for the first time (in my experience) the public had shown those in charge (or pretending that they were!) that they could take a stand and at the very least make these overpaid, perk ridden politicians that they had a voice.
I am not stupid, I understand that the country is in a state and needs to generate cash, but with MP's living in cloud cuckoo land enjoying a variety of unfair allowances which cushion the effects of living in the "real" UK, I, along with millions of other hard working people that are hit by the ever increasing burden, get more and more p*ssed off.
