The Fuel Crisis Is Getting Worse In The South East!

The fuel crisis is getting more serious in London and the southeast, an industry expert warned, as retailers demand urgent action to restock filling stations.

Soldiers will begin delivering petrol from Monday in a drastic attempt to end the turmoil of recent days.

However, industry bosses are calling for certain dry sites to be prioritised, amid warnings for motorists that they should expect a rise of up to 3p a litre at the pump.

Brian Madderson, chair of the Petrol Retailer’s Association, told BBC Radio Four’s Today programme that in the north, Scotland, some parts of the Midlands there was a definite improvement in fewer dry sites, however in London and the southeast if anything, it had got more serious.

He said that he passed no less than five filling stations in Kent which were dry and that it was a huge problem, and that this wasn’t going to be a major relief, it was a great help but in terms of the volume, they weren’t going to be able to carry that much.

He continued that they need prioritisation of deliveries to filling stations, particularly the independent ones in neighbourhood sites in London and the southeast starting now.

Mr Maddison said local retail sites lying closed without fuel affects consumer confidence and called on the government to speed up deliveries to those areas over the coming days, and he added that this week they’ve seen the wholesale price for fuel increase by 3p a litre for unleaded and diesel.

He said that this had nothing to do with the driver deficit, and that this was solely to do with global factors, and that Brent Crude had risen by almost 50 per cent this year and had been skirting $80 a barrel lately, but at the same time, the pound against the dollar has weakened so those two factors have driven up the wholesale price.

He said, next week, because forecourts have been depleted, new stocks coming in will be at the higher price to them, so they should expect a 3p increase at the pump, and this was not profiteering, it was just genuine wholesale price rises caused by global circumstances.

However, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said the fuel situation was stabilising in most parts of the country and the military was being used as a precaution.

Sadly the media has not helped the situation and has created more panic at the pumps, and now people are filling up their jerry cans when they can just fill the tanks on their vehicles.

But is this all just a coincidence with the big green tax push happening next month, with these charlatans wanting everyone to buy overpriced electric cars?

And where is this Brexit dream that we were all promised? People who voted out believed that Brexit would solve all of our problems, it appears not!

Or is this a totally fabricated crisis, because another lockdown wouldn’t be tolerated, but has the same outcome – stresses the public and hinders them from being able to work and then the mainstream media distracts the public whilst Boris Johnson’s totalitarian regime endeavours to shove medical apartheid and digital surveillance systems through Parliament whilst no one is watching.

Shortly we will have the Army on our streets, best get your COVID papers ready to show, and this is just the tip of a very scary iceberg.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
