Fuel Shortage – None say our politicians – get real !

Our politicians tell us confidently and clearly that there will be no fuel shortages providing we don’t panic buy. Well take a look at what the situation is at a small town like Forfar with only 2 petrol stations.

No Fuel

NO FUEL IN ANY STATION. Not sure if stations are topped up during the day, but none last night at 17:00 either!

SO – are the politicians facing “reality” or are they sitting in their little “pods” at the Scottish Parliament and thinking of their next completely detatched from reality speach to the people. While the population is facing fuel shortages already and the strike has not even started?

The reality is the politicians have no control whatsover over public behaviour and even less over fuel supplies to the pumps the ordinary person will use in their day to day living.

It would probably be best if they just shut up and let the thing play out. That would apply for the media as well.

Have a Dram – Keep Calm !
