    The same Gordon Brown who's repeatedly telling the oil retailers to lower the price of petrol and diesel to reflect recent declines in the price of crude oil?

    And by the way, the price of oil dropped today by $1.25 for Brent crude and by $0.95 a barrel for West Texas Intermediate.

    Yeah he's happy to tell them which is more of asking them IMO, but if it was so important to him all he has to do is cut the fuel duty. He can say and do as he wants, but there's never any action with government and I can't say any other parties would be better IMO. All bent bu88ers who are only out for themselves.

    Just MO and nothing towards you Thomas

    This quote from the Daily Mail earlier..Reports of the hijacking helped lift global crude prices above $58 a barrel after earlier losses.

    And in any case ..?How the hec did they scale the sides of a ship like that doing 15 knots at the time..does'nt sound right to me.
