You know, we have no grounds to complain about a nanny state and media reporting thereon when we react like this to an impending fuel shortage. OK, so Francis Maude didn’t exactly help the situation by telling people to “fill a jerry can” and “keep it in your garage“, but seriously?
If Francis Maude then told you to then light a match and throw it into said garage, would you do that as well?
