Due to the Libyan/Arabian crisis the global prices for petrol have astronomically soared, but in the UK the motorists seem to be getting hit harder than anywhere else.
In fact there have been several riots at UK petrol stations and the National Guard has had to be called in.
The government were due to rise petrol prices before the Arabian crisis started, but in their wisdom decided not too and dropped a penny off of the petrol tax, but this doesn't seem to have been passed on to the punters by the greedy petrol suppliers.
Some of the reasons for them not reducing the pump prices are beyond belief, here are just a couple:
A) The UK could be attacked by Gadaffi's rockets?
B) Syria and Palstine are planning a submarine attack on all BP off-shore oil rigs?
C) Multi-billionaire Saudi Sheikhs don't give a camels shit about the UK only their footie teams and Rolls Royces.
D) Bin Laden was last seen at Sainsbury's filling up station asking for discount stamps on his petrol, scary?
E) The Airforce needs all the fuel necessary to carry out their air strikes on Libya?
PM, David Cameron, has come up with a brilliant suggestion to ease the UK motorists burden; "fill your cars up with whisky, it's cheaper and will be until we get Gadaffi!"
