The uk has many issues but I’m convinced a lot of their issues could be corrected by simply driving on the correct side of the road. No country is an island. Gstq.
I think I’m with this guy:
“I’m not sure what they’re achieving - other than inconveniencing people," he said.
“…. The protesters have actually inconvenienced everyone else who is inconvenienced by high fuel prices.”
It is a good thing to allow the common folk to vent their frustrations. Some people think harmless venting is criminal. A study of king George on the 4th is not off topic.
Two years ago it was Canadian truckers and now UK truckers.
And Brussels, farmers in France and Greece…
Their taxes are so high that their fuel only doubled from the low point during the pandemic. In the USA it is up nearly 4 times, even though our current prices is less than theirs.
The person who commented that people still drive at 80 MPH has a good point. Doing that increases fuel consumption a lot.
