Ministers did nothing wrong by urging people to hoard petrol, William Hague claimed last night, as truckers warned they would join any strike by tanker drivers to ‘bring Britain to a halt’. The Foreign Secretary said ministers such as Francis Maude, who told people to fill their cars and keep jerry cans of fuel at home, had done ‘absolutely the right thing’. With polls showing support for the Coalition plummeting, Mr Hague suggested that panic buying had made Britain more resilient to any strikes. He said: ‘The country is in a better state of preparedness than a week ago for the eventuality of a tanker strike, so I think they have handled that correctly. 'My colleagues have done absolutely the right thing to urge people to take sensible precautions and they will be vindicated over the coming days. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...[/ex ]

Let's be honest. Who listens to Hague ?
Only the criminals who work alongside him.
You're right. They should all go.

PS. Not implying that people shouldnt rebel or what these truckers are doing is bad (IMO it is great, 63% tax for fuel???).

"The most tolerant nation on earth"? Seriously? Blair showed that you guys are certainly capable of electing clones of G. W. Bush and fully supporting the massacre of civilians.

"where will all this madness end with the lib con goverment?"
Well it probably won't end really . The people 'choose' another government and a whole other agenda starts again. The belief that the different political parties are actually different is a mistaken one IMO.

The government now seem to be claiming that they did not know that, if any strike was called 7 days notice must be given by the strikers. They claim they only just found this out, which is a lie, because I knew about this law before. If they did not know about this law then it just shows how incompetent they are. They are trying to defend their reaction and the crisis they manufactured themselves.
The Government have shot themselves in the foot as now we all know the importance of the tanker drivers job and the tanker driver obviously deserves the money they get and to defend their working conditions. Not many other professions can have such an effect when they withdraw their labour for a couple of days.
I'm not saying let the drivers hold the country to ransom, but the government needs to have a bit of respect for the work they do and the demands they have.
