I worked for Shell for a couple of years too. I should point out that your franchisee managing the garage makes about 1p a litre on fuel sold. The company on the other hand...

In terms of the profit margin my store saw vs. the company is what I meant. :LOL:

Also, the coffee there does taste like diesel, so...

Is a mass none paying of bills possible? I was barely 6 for the Poll Tax stuff but saw Martin Lewis warning there could be a 'consumer strike' if steps aren't taken to get prices under control.

Hyperbole or do we think these cunts laughing at us posting billions in profit might wake the country up?

Well austerity has stripped back the courts systems, so perhaps a consumer strike ain't a bad idea!
In all seriousness, given profits are so high, perhaps we can strip these companies of the ridiculous government subsidies they get.

Not just that just tax the fuckers.

If they won't pay the tax strip them of their licenses to pull it out of the sea and give it to somebody that will and for zero profit.

The petroleum companies are a blight on mankind, pure evil.

So just spoke to my niece, funeral arrangements for my sister have been set.
Looks like I'll be back home for a week or so, probably from 19th Aug thru 27th.

Note left by a classmate for that young girl stabbed in Boston

"‘You were the bestest friend. Hopefully you are now with the angels in a better place. You are probably watching Harry Potter."

Im 56 years old, father of three and Grandfather of six.

I cried at work today

My eldest just informed us he and his family are moving to Fife in 3 months. Sad for us but he's excited ( he and us have always liked Scotland)
Be a bit further from Newport than Shrewsbury but I suppose you have to let them go, hopefully they'll all be happy
At least it gives us a nice place to visit and a cheap overnight when we go up to the Highlands.
