I Pity the Fuel

My mother visited for the last ten days. I don’t put holidays online while they happen, because I don’t want to advertise when anyone’s house is empty. Especially family. We don’t see much of family most of the time anyway and it’s been far worse since the Covid Cult took hold. Haven’t visited Denmark, nor even Wales, for over two years now.

So okay, I’ve been busy driving around. The car really needed the exercise anyway, it’s been quietly rotting outside for ages, and it was a good chance to see my kids and grandkids more frequently too. There wasn’t much spare time and what there was I used to try to get the editing work done rather than blogging. I have emails and other messages to catch up with too.

Anyway, she’s safely home now. Things are getting back to some semblance of normal again. Except… Two days before she left I thought I’d better refill the petrol tank. That car hasn’t done so many miles in ages. Simple enough, there’s both a Morrison’s and Tesco’s where my son lives so we just called in on the way home.

Tesco garage was closed. It’s a 24 hour garage with pay-at-pump facilities. It was closed for lack of fuel.

Morrison’s had half the pumps coned off and queues. I got petrol there, they had E5 which costs more than E10 but I prefer it. My car will run on E10 but the mileage is very noticeably worse. It burns more fuel to go the same distance but that’s ‘green’ in the wind chimes that pass for minds in government.

So there appears to be a petrol shortage. As with all the other shortages of the past two years, it’s not real. There is no petrol shortage in the UK, it has been contrived by government and assisted by the police as usual. The police could simply arrest those obstructing the highway but that law doesn’t apply to the useful idiots, as Lenin called them. He was so very right about that.

It’s the same as the ‘toilet paper shortage’ at the start of the scam. The problem is not supply. It’s distribution. In the toilet paper game, the problem was that idiots bought massive amounts of arsewipes faster than shops could restock. It’s a bulky, low value item. They don’t waste too much stockroom space on it and really, a 24-roll pack should last a family of four a month unless they are spectacularly prodigious shitters. Or, as I suspect may be the case, as full of shit as the average politician. In which case they might be better to invest in a power washer or a slurry pit.

This ‘shortage’, we are told, is due to idiot children blocking fuel supply centres because they want to ‘end oil’ while typing this on their plastic phones and wearing plastic hi-viz jackets. The incoherence of their arguments is astounding. I’m just waiting for Tarquin and Frogmella to phone Mummy for a lift home to be told that they can’t get any fuel for their Audi and the little darlings will have to walk back. Or take public transport. Which, thanks to their idiotic quest, won’t be running for lack of fuel. They might be walking for the first time in ther sad lilttle sheltered lives.

Welcome to the 13th century, kids. You want to travel the world? It’ll take you several weeks to travel the length of the UK. If you survive the reivers and the highwaymen. Oh and don’t give it the ‘I’ll call the police’ line because your mobile phones are only good for propping up a wonky table leg. There is no fuel to provide electricity to power the network and no way to charge them anyway.

Oh, and those plastic hi-vis vests? In the coming New Normal, hi-vis is likely to be a bad choice. If you want to scoff and say I’m a tinfoil hatter, be my guest. I’m not going to tell you why it’s a bad idea. You’ll find out and you’ll draw a lot of unwelcome attention from me while you find it out.

We have oil central heating. In February it was around 60p a litre. In March it was £1.08 a litre. I don’t care, we just light the wood stove every night and to the Righteous who want to moan about us ‘burning trees’ I have one word. Drax. We use dead wood, not felled forests shipped from the other side of the planet.

Besides, the Cult of the Green God has no issue with destroying millions upon millions of acres of green land for windmills and solar panels. Both of which are a horrible pollution future.

The fuel ‘shortage’ could be resolved in an instant if the police were allowed to treat these idiots like they treat those who protest for freedom. This bollocks is only going to end one way now. We have no police, no government, no legal system to take our troubles to,

Boris has left us with only one option.

The Mussolini ending.

  1. Mussolini? Wasn’t he hanging around lamp posts?

    Agreed that this continual state of crisis is a complete Government cock up from start to finish and all points in between. That’s not just the UK, but everywhere in the West. It’s almost like they’re all working to a script.

    And, right after I read this, here across the pond in New York, a man only identified as wearing “a high visibility vest” shot up the subway. I’m going out to buy tinfoil now.
