Well instead of saying "another f**king useless protest" stand up and be fooking counted..!
The numbers expected for this protest alone are above 5000 already, The police are allocating overflow parking on the A40.. they know this one is going to happen.

If the goverment dont listen to peaceful protest then the only option left is to blockade.. BUT if you drive a lorry for a living, Would YOU blockadge knowing full well that VOSA will REVOKE your operators licence with immediate effect ?
Then the price of fuel dont matter coz you cant use your lorry for work anyway, so you couldnt afford it then anyhow.


Pissses me off all these people that are willing to slate the efforts of other but just sit on there own arses..!

simple, dont cause much disruption to goverment when there not there... lol

alot of people will be about on a weekday also, the aim is not to disrupt the general public but to get there support and get them onboard.

Alot of people are taking the day of work, including a vast majority who deliver your bread for example

I will be there :D

Thats 5000 people that will be ignored for a day ....

If they do something that will get noticed, have an affect like they did when they kept it going for weeks then I would give it my full support.

Some people will always chose to step forward and lead, some will always stay back and be followers. Who is wrong or right isnt important, we all have our different views, but those 5000 will have my respect for at least trying. They certainly arent ignored and i'm sure the protest will get news coverage. Governments are affected by protests, just look at the mess labour are in. Governments who ignore the people will end up ejected.
Good luck to those attending.

I have to agree with you there...

The last one i was involved with at the shell place near chester the blockades where doing there job then it all just broke up and everything went back to normal.. think the leaders were getting threats from all angles.

We all call the French etc but when they dont like something what do they do??? They fetch the country to a standstill and more often than not get heard and things sorted.....

Last protest in London what was it ahh yeah a feckin coffin carried.....

And on one last note most will turn up in gas guzzling cars and wagons erm thats just giving the gov more money for the fuel it will cost to be crawling around the capital the blockades are the best way to go imho....

@ £1.24 a litre of diesel somthing needs to be done, the thing is nothing thats been done before has worked so something else has to be tried and until we can come up with another strategy I for one support the protest as doing something is better than nothing

yes, something does need to be done - but that something isnt to reduce the price of fuel.

Other than that - does anyone have any suggestions?

Well that is were the problem starts............... do we just want to get the price of fuel down? or cost of living on a whole. I think we tend to forget its not just us motorists that are getting stung its the whole country with high costs of living, the guv would be happy with a simple protest for a couple of days and then drop fuel by 2p a litre and hope it all goes away(which is what happened the last time) BUT what if the whole country decided to come out and speak out about cost of living in general (which would cover fuel anyway)
Well here lies the major set back how do you get GB to strike, speak out and show discontent for the current problems? "general elections!!" I hear but think back about the poll tax, we got the cons out and put in labour and look where we are now talking about how to get them out AND PUT WHO IN!!!! its always going to be the same sh*t just a different hole.
All I can say is lets not give up and support what actions are happening regardless of if you think its insignificant what have you got to loose? keep the petitions/protests comming and lets unite and stand our ground

I think the point I was trying to make was this; why waste time on diesel (for instance) when you can make your own biofuel?

It doesnt appear to be that hard, its a hell of a lot cheaper and a lot cleaner to run. Even the Royal Navy is looking at running warships on cooking oil now.

Eventually, the government will tax it, yes - but moving to fuels like this will take the money away from unstable regions like Iraq. With that done, people wont be held to ransom when the war affects the prices...

and this is a bad thing because?

would you not prefer 2500 of tax free fuel a year instead of paying the price for diesel at the pump now?
