    How are they rationing the fuel ?

    are the pumps pre set to only deliver £ 30 or what ever

    filled up last night about 10 ish

    they had a note on the pump saying limited to 30£

    as a key worker I brimmed the van more than £30 no one said any thing to me and the pump delivered the fuel

  3. Drove past 3 petrol stations yesterday - one closed, two with dozens of cars queueing out onto the road.

    Havent got much driving to do over the next few days, which is just as well, as Ive only got about 10l left. Kicking myself, as Thursday evening I drove past one selling regular unleaded for 129.9, and I thought "ooh, thats not bad, I should fill up", and then I was past, and CBA to turn round and go back. :(

    The hypocrisy.

    When the NHS and teachers asked for a wage increase Tory bots on here were foaming at the mouth. It seems that its ok to exploit teachers and NHS staff.

    Now the Government has done a U-turn and opened up Visas so your argument that they want to help out exploited workers falls flat again.

    You are so manipulated its laughable.

    It’s funny how right wing supporters complain when Labour and unions campaign for higher wages and a fairer society, but suddenly when the same argument can be used against immigrants…..they suddenly it’s important.

    "When I was poor and complained about inequality they said I was bitter; now that I'm rich and I complain about inequality they say I'm a hypocrite. I'm beginning to think they just don't want to talk about inequality."

    It's more the inequality that has a factor tied into wages, but it also spans services and quality of life. Raising incomes is good but not when inflation eats it away.

    The public is unable to understand nuance or details so the Politcians can get away with this.

    When Mottie says cheap, exploited workers. Who do you think he means. And who do you think he's pointing g the finger at? Could it be by chance rich global companies and rich bosses with short hands, long pockets

    No one is blaming the foreigners. You lot keep telling them that they are not wanted or liked very much. With friends like you. No wonder why they go home.

    You have blamed immigrants for suppressing wages on here constantly. Seriously you lie like Bojo no wonder you love him.

    PS Don't lie to your kids.

    I've been an immigrant. I have no problem with good decent people trying to make a good living and a life for their families.

    It's the foreigners who get exploted more so. As alot of the locals will simply not put up with low wages and poor conditions, just to serve those with multiple property's and wealth.

    But if you think uncontrolled immigration has no bearing on wages and working conditions then you really are a blind a fool or someone makes out of others misery and misfortune.

    Straw man argument after your lies are called out. Typical response Bodd.

    If you care about exploited workers you wouldn't be so against wage increases for teachers, nhs staff etc.

    Same here. South Africa in the early eighties but before I could go there, I had to have a work permit and a job offer for a job that could not be filled by a South African, I had to have a health check including a chest X-ray for TB, a guarantee of a return flight by my employer for when the job finished and private medical insurance. That’s as it should be.
