The highly charged undercurrent has been bubbling away for some
time now and when news first broke of the blockades our inbox
went into overdrive. The media has yet again watched and waited
as the situation went from wide spread fuel depletion to the
government propaganda machine playing the national health card.
The scenes and spirit of the blockades brings back a sense of
nationalistic pride, the support from locals surrounding the
various blockade points has been tremendous.
As the government finds itself on the back foot it's only option
has been to state how it will not be held to ransom, how it
still, after insurmountable public feeling on the fuel tax issue
refuses to back down and reduce fuel tax. Blair looks lost and
shell-shocked, how on earth he feels he can recover from this
god only knows. The fuel tax issue is something that will not be
decided by blockades and reverts back into health and schools
rhetoric. The general public will not buy it any more, he's seen
what can be done and the Hauliers and Farmers have made it quite
clear that they might have decided to go home, but in 60 days
time will readdress the situation depending on what Gordon Brown
comes up with in his Pre-Budget speech.
Boycott-The-Pumps, Dump The Pump started the fuel tax issue and
I feel so strongly that we will finish it, why? Because never
has the fuel taxation issue been more predominant as it is now,
over the next few months we will see a comprehensive array of
flash protests flaring up all over the country, direct action
will continue, but Boycott-The-Pumps is committed to placing
financial pressure on BP, our support is growing because more
and more people realise that the best way to contribute to the
fight for lower fuel prices in the UK is to boycott BP. Each and
every one of us can do this; our support has now exceeded 3.5
million motorists. BP also had 35% of fuel stocks left when
others had run dry; they also have not increased their prices.
These past few days has seen a frenzy of activity as more and
more people realise that it's so easy to be a part of our
So take pride in the actions of these past 10 days, yes we are
inconvenienced; yes we will witness more propaganda from the
government as it concentrates on showing us scenes of irate
people and tries to win back some ground by portraying the
actions as selfish, ill advised and concentrating on the
negative scenes. The Dump The Pump campaign had been ignored by
the government, but not the motorist. Over this past week I have
had countless TV and Radio appearances as well as talking to
over 50 million Americans this afternoon on a live 20 minute
programme, on each occasion getting our boycott BP message
across loud and clear.
