The knock on effects of a strike probably wouldn't be that bad if it wasn't for the fact that a lot of people in this country are so damn stupid.

At the moment people have managed to create a crisis out of nothing. As it stands there will be no strike and no shortages, yet people have gone out en masse to fill up their cars and have created one.

Fuel strikes
Even then though that was about 10 (?) years ago and there have been a number of threatened and failed strikes since.

I think the governments response initially made things worse than they needed to be.

RE: Fuel strikes
Potentially its a big problem in my area. Due to the lack of funding for public transport it is essential to be self sufficient when the nearest station is ten miles away and the nearest(infrequent) bus service is 2 miles away. People need transport for all sorts of reasons as local facilities get closed and everything becomes centralised.Nobody makes unplanned journeys without killing several birds with the one stone.
Driving 8 miles to a petrol station to find its run out of fuel is not very satisfactory. I feel very sorry for those people who have to make journeys to schools, hospitals,work etc and in rural areas I feel that special arrangements should be made for those who have essential needs.
at the moment the lack of any clarity is worrying.

Which was the most likely outcome anyway. Obviously the government made things 10 times worse by saying people needed to fill up and mentioning jerrycans but you would expect people to use their brains, or their eyes, or their ears, or perhaps (despite the stick that they've been getting over using this word) common sense!

This is certainly one news story that I am totally sick of. You would think there was nothing else going on in the world at the moment.
If the 'Unite' petrol tanker drivers strike they must give 7 days notice. If they do strike, maybe they should be sacked ...... that would teach them especially as they are the highest paid delivery drivers in the UK by a country mile.
As for the foolish politician who encouraged people to fill up their cars and use jerry cans ....he should resign......simple!
End of.
