Fuel duty cut shows Labour does not care about public opinion
The Labour party attitude. The pathetic cut of 3p on the massive tax levels at 73% per litre is not
going to help the hauliers, who will pass on the continued high fuel costs to
ALL end consumers.
Blair and Brown hope to stop the second round of fuel protests but it is clear they deserve this
second round and a third and a fourth until they remember one thing: Democracy for the people, BY THE people.
NOT - by parliament. His party is so far out of whack with reality and the feelings of those
on the ground you must wonder does he actually NOT believe there is a problem?
