The only time I have ever heard of a boycott of this kind was back in 2000. That was the fault of Blairs Government too.
Lets just bugger him off and get someone new. Maybe we'll get someone decent this time. Anything is possible.
People should be protesting for more research into enviromentaly friendly, renewable power sources, not trying to make the problem with this Earth cheaper to use. Nobody cares about the beautiful planet that shelters us from space and keeps us alive, or the people who are killed for oil everyday (in iraq and elsewhere).

Couldn't agree with you more. But this is about a Government who uses the environment as an excuse to impose a duty of 80% on fuel as a pure tax-raising exercise.
I'm sure a lot of people would support fuel duty if any of it went back into funding research and development of renewable, environmentally friendly and realistically priced alternatives.
Good luck to them.
