missives issued from the lair

A petrol shortage? Hmm, draining the reserves we still have is going to help, isn’t it? Image: REUTERS/Darren Staples.

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?
