Mail readers are revolting!
They're taking to the streets in hoards (or rather saying they support others who might do it while they watch from behind their quivering Daily Mails)!
Is this the revolution that follows the groundswell of opinon against 10 years of Labour rule? No, petrol's gone up again
£1 litre drives protesters back to the fuel blockades
Some budding Che Guavaras here though:
I agree wholeheartedly for a new petrol protest! The only thing this tzar in 10 Downing Street understands is countrywide protest. Maybe at last, this country is beginning to wake from the stupor of the Bliar/Brown chloroform, which has stupefied their attitude to dissent and protest over outrageous government and taxation.

G-ooo Kathab, g-oooo Kathab.
More power tpo the protesters. Bring the UK to a standstill and maybe politicians might listen. I won't hold my breath, though.
- Rob, London
Neither will I Rob, neither will I.
This is what we need! Some action taken against this government, they won't listen to reason - it's time to start striking back!
- Stu Taylor, Norwich Norfolk
We're right behind you Stu!
The more that join the better.
- M Harrington, Hitchin
Words don't come more sagely than that.
I would fully support any blockades, the price for fuel in this country is unbelievable, I have to put £220 a month in my 1.4 Peugeot just to get to work everyday.

Work closer to home...?
Tell me where and when and I up for it. The alternative is for everyone to boycott a specific fuel company for a week at a time and get the multinationals to put pressure on McBroon. BP this week Esso next week etc.
- Gary, Leicester, England
Gary's up for it. Anyone else?
All motorists should support this Protest. Petrol Duty should not be used as a easy source of Tax Revenue by this waste of space government.
- Mike Adams, Taunton. UK
The shocking truth at last! Petrol duty is just another form of taxation!
Don't drive for a week, that should sort the government out, if that does not work the motorist hit the oil companies one week at a time.
- Michael, Hereford, England
Yeah, that'll teach 'em!
The tax on fuel is not causing the high prices - it is because the supply is running out. Get over it and used to it. You moaning drivers should buy low fuel cars, move nearer to your place of work, get on your bikes or setup a car share scheme.
- Ben, London, UK
Oh dear, Ben. You poor, misguided fool. This is a REVOLUTION!
Interesting, one would assume that this would be the biggest new story in the UK at present, yet there is absolutely no mention of it on the BBC news website. Now does that imply that this story is just so much hogwash or that the BBC are surpressing it?

Ajp might be on to something...
