Royston BS: Petrol Prices UK (100* d) RE: BS: Petrol Prices UK 12 Apr 10


"The Telegraph today has David Cameron promising some action on petrol prices"

What a sack of shit. Take 10p tax off a litre of petrol.

Where/how are they going to fund that and make an impact on our deficit?

Obvious - move the tax back onto wholesale oil prices. And that would have what effect on petrochemical product prices like, errm, petrol? Or heating oil? or the diesel that delivers groceries to the supermarket shelves?

Any resident rocket scientists want to have a go at answering that.

Surely nobody would actually vote for a party so utterly stupid as to have made that "pledge", would they? Really?
