Well the other night I went past the Texaco garage on the A1 at Doncaster and diesel was £1.299 a litre!!! That's £5.85 a gallon! In the last few months I know crude prices are going up but I filled up in Calais last Saturday and even with the strong Euro it's about £1.02 a litre. So we have nearly a 30% difference on exactly the same product as our friendly frog crunchers!
Everyday in my lorry I put in 150 litres so from this time last year one shift has gone up from approx £150 to nearly £200! We have 180 lorries and each one does at least 2 shifts a day(if you can work that little lot out you'll see how much Gordon Brown's fat wallet is increasing and that's just one company...!). Who in the end will pay for all the lorries' costs rising acros the country? YOU WILL. As well as all the sneaky taxes that we're being hit with absolutely all prices are going up (from bread,milk, chicken to gas and electricity) yet we're still being taxed on the fuel price rises and then VAT put on top!
I know all politicians are only in it to line their own pockets but surely if nothing is done how close to a general strike can we be? I have practically nothing left every month now due to not having had a pay rise for 4 years due to the poor state of the economy and rising fuel prices and it's getting to the stage of looking at people on the dole enviously cause they're better off than me and I work 60 hours a week!
GORDON BROWN AS A STARTER DROP THE CRIPPLING FUEL TAXES BEFORE YOU KILL THIS COUNTRY!!
