Okay, okay I donít know the first thing about protesting other than when I was 10 and I explained to my mother that fish did not have fingers and since I wasnít completely satisfied with the origins of the food on my plate I was not going to eat it.
Fuel prices are stupidly high and rising, but nevertheless we keep paying for it - well we have to donít we?! Itís not like buying parts, we canít check the dealers, independents and then crawl eBay looking for the cheapest option. We have to go with the best we can find with the difference being only a few pence.
So what is this thread about? I often wonder what would be the most successful way for the UK people to protest in a civilised manner against the tax paid on fuel. The blockades a few years ago were necessary to an extent and proved at the time that businesses were unhappy with the price of fuel. The public, to some degree supported the protest although some found it an inconvenience, rightly so...we want to have our say but we donít want to go without.
I would be interested to hear peoples thoughts on the best way to protest that would yield maximum impact with the most public support. How is it possible to show the government that the UK as a whole will not continue to accept this tax and how would it be possible to engage the public to take part in a protest?
This is a hypothetical exercise only, and I am only interested in civilised and rational ideas.
