Bikers stop Motorways in fuel protest


http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article4071480.ece

More than 500 motorbike riders revved off in convoy from a service station outside Manchester at 8am and staged a “go-slow” demonstration against escalating prices at the petrol pump. Onlookers – and even those caught in the disruption – applauded in support as they sat in the major tailbacks on the M62 and M60 around Greater Manchester caused by the protest.

I love this figure in the article.

"The latest figures from the RAC indicate that 67.2 per cent of every litre of petrol consists of tax and VAT. "

Wasn't there a big revolution about this a couple of hundred years ago?

I'm guessing that we will be close on your heels after our next election.

Cheers,

Thanks Mike,

It is good to know that civil disobedience is alive and well in the old country. :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Not much sign of protest here in the colonies, but petrol is only ~$4.50 +/- a gallon at this time :eek: .
