Fuelled by Frustration - Press release
Over just two days, 10,000 frustrated and bewildered supporters of the FairFuelUK campaign to lower petrol & diesel prices by cutting fuel duty have emailed their MPs. This enormous number is reaction to news that a promised Commons debate on fuel pricing might not take place despite over 100,000 signatures on FairFuelUK's ePetition. At one point MPs were receiving 1,000 emails an hour.
Quentin Willson said: 'The Government told us that their ePetitions would make Parliament more responsive to the public. I'm not seeing any response at all and completely understand the unprecedented frustration of thousands of our supporters. At best this is making the Government look inefficient, and at worst shifty. This level of public outrage shows just how deep feelings really are on the subject of impossibly high fuel prices. The FairFuelUK Campaign team is holding a reception in Parliament tomorrow (Monday 31st October) and will be lobbying MPs to help expedite this long-awaited and crucially important debate. There should be no more prevarication and dithering.'
