Crisis what crisis? In what seems like a fairly obvious attempt to move the donations scandal off the front pages the government have invented a crisis where there wasn't one. Last night as we drove back from The Sage we saw queues at petrol stations that are normally deserted.

Needless to say, nobody is talking about David Cameron's trouble anymore as blanket coverage has been handed over to the petrol shortage crisis. The only reason there's a shortage is because idiots like Francis Maude told motorists to fill their cars, jerrycans and Lord knows what else. 

Ironically, the tanker drivers are working even harder and longer hours as the companies try to keep up with the sudden surge in demand.

It would be funny if it wasn't so serious.

Still, don't worry. Ginger Bob tells me he's got everything under control.

In other news, Tom baked some bread today and boy, does it look good...

Hand-made and baked by my son's own fair hand. Can't wait to taste it!

Warro Sid. Tis a sad vindication of the (paraphrased) quote, "the people get the government they deserve," when you see the queues of traffic blocking islands and dual carriageways just because vile specimens like Francis Maude tell them to.

When you also hear of fighting on the forecourts, it's a sad indictment of what capitalism has reduced the human race to. Punch ups over liquid; it's a Tory wet dream and we're sliding deeper into their soggy patch.

It's horrific on so many levels. The diversionary tactics you mention; a sordidly cynical attempt to keep the heat off the budget; tax cuts for the rich; the bungs for legislation; the lack of growth/double-dip recession; and the ridiculous "pastygate" debacle - the sole aim of talking up a non-existent strike, to keep these "indiscretions" from the public gaze.

And stripe me, what about the NHS? Everyone's forgotten about that little carve-up now. Even when the news that Tory supporter Richard Branson gets the go ahead to profit off of sick kids in Surrey fails to hit the front pages.

In the light of the unfortunate lady in York who suffered the burns from decanting petrol in her kitchen, I think it's also worth sharing this leaked memo from Tory HQ to constituency associations (the Torygraph have reported this, so it's from a conservative-friendly source):

“This is our Thatcher moment. In order to defeat the coming miners’ strike, she stockpiled coal. When the strike came, she weathered it, and the Labour Party, tarred by the strike, was humiliated. In order to defeat the coming fuel drivers’ strike, we want supplies of petrol stockpiled. Then, if the strike comes, we will weather it, and Labour, in hock to the Unite union, will be blamed.”

That's the level of contempt this disgusting government hold us in. And with the success of their panic-mongering on the ill-informed, they've also succeeded in creating a nation of blacklegs.

Sad times, Sid. Angry times.
