‘Up to 90 percent’ of UK petrol pumps dry amid panic buying

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

The UK government says it’s working to ensure fuel supply issues are resolved, following days of long queues at petrol stations, with many forced to close.
Pressure is on the government to solve the problem as tension increases and polls suggest voters believe the government is mishandling the crisis.
There have been reports the army may be brought in to drive tankers, because of a shortage of drivers.
Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons reports from London.

    funny, they kick out the Eastern Europeans who come here to pick vegetables, labour on building sites and drive trucks, and bring in Hong Kong’ers, Somali’s, Afghans, Syrians, Libyans etc, then start buying 4 + 5 bed houses for them, giving them benefit and paying for lawyers to allow them to fight the extradition system.
    The whole place has gone mad.

    LOL I’m in the North of England and see no queues.
    90% indeed.
    There is some queuing, and I would guess 15% of pumps may be empty.
    But 90% would only occur after nuclear Armageddon.

  46. Avatar Andy Clark says:

    Government fault, for saying don’t buy fuel.

    As soon as you say that, people go and panic buy fuel. Which happened, when will government/Conservatives learn.

  47. Avatar S K says:

    Those who voted brexit back of the queue please!

    All down to some plonker in the driving union/spokesperson pedalling fake news……

  52. Avatar guyverjedi says:

    It’s understandable if a politician tells you to not panic buy its obvious the opposite will happen…. politicians are lieing cheating bastards, as if anyone is going to listen to them. If anything you do the opposite… that’s what’s happened. TBH the only time a politician should be surprised is if someone agrees with them.

    Africa has so many truck drivers. Let Britain reach out and we shall offer the services

  90. Avatar stuart skinner says:

    I doubt the ‘panic buying’ explanation. Commuters biggest user so they all brim their tanks and don’t need fuel for rest of the week. The problem will be corporate just-in-time logistics and their Globalist clown-world antics. So, of course, Brexit!

    Look how the population of this country is swelling with foreigners and their needs. Answer to that is, of course, to dish out visas.

  91. Avatar Kevin-Albert Williams says:

    Pump A usually 10 customers.
    Pump B usually 10 customers
    Pump C usually 10 customers.

    Pump A. No delivery and shut down.
    Pump B. 50% capacity
    Now there’s a queue at pump C which equals 25 customers in a queue.

    People need fuel. Simple as. There’s no panic buying. Don’t blame the drivers.

    “Very emotional, I cried” for fks sake, people are nothing more than over reacting Muppets. What fkn short supply, you mean the one thats over as soon as it started LOL, fkn idiots will report on anything today. As much as you want to buy where I live..

  93. Avatar PEdulis says:

    Who would go through all the trouble needed to obtain a visa to work in the UK for just 3 months to then be kicked out again at Christmas because “forerigners” are not wanted in the UK any more?
    As a Dutch HGV driver put it: “I spoke with colleagues and none of them will go to the UK to help them out of the s… they created themselves.”

    But its not brexit fault! I am rolling on my sofa sitting at home and sipping my italian coffee. No issues where i am with petrol or any sort of shortages. And imagine these ppl introduced 3 months temp visas to lure drivers in. Nobody wants your visas! Europe moved on and nobody cares about little englanders! Just on a side note lets wait till summer when fruit picking season hits. But its not brexit fault lol
