Great petrol revolt begins
Great comments here. Firstly this gem:
Did you know that Labour has been altering computers in order to gain an advantage over their opponents ( Joe public - US ), They have then pretended that the computers are the law so that they can ignore the laws as written down in statutes ( which I have already pointed out should be in public libraries for all to see). They cannot be found in any library in Derbyshire or any Labour controlled Council areas. Many civil servants practice this thinking we are all gullible fools. They are the fools people have been learning all about their tricks.

And a remarkably sensible comment,
british motorists must think they are the only ones in the world paying high prices and blame Gordon Brown, if you think the Tories would be doing better you must be stupid, oil prices and oil speculators have driven up prices not Mr Brown.I am a Brit living in the USA and I can tell you petrol and all other prices have risen far more in percentage terms than in the UK. Your taxes and petrol duty give you free health care and a welfare system which some abuse criminally, Iknow I have relatives who do it. I paid 4500 pounds social security, 3500 medicare and 49000 income tax last year and have no free health care etc, etc, etc and that is pounds not dollars. I have learned politicians the world over are all the same and if Mr Cameron was in power you would be saying the same things about the Tories. I paid my dues in England for 40 years and took nothing from the system so I think Im entitled to a point of view.Stop whining, open your eyes and count your blessings.

Trubbrit1. You have made a very fair point sitting in the US. But you are living in a country where the President - Bush is elected.
Brown is unelected and that is where things are so wrong.
If we had all voted for Brown and the Labour party under his management, when for example he came to office, your point would be valid.
Or indeed we had voted for, "call me", 'Dave' Cameron and things went wrong.
Brown is an unelected leader with no mandate from the people and running things under a constitution by consent. Rremember you are living in a country with a written consitution.

What's being unelected got to do with the points raised by trubbrit?
