We all welcome the debate which, quite frankly, is long overdue.
About time all this oil farce was sorted out! We have NO CHOICE but to use cars to get anywhere up in the Highlands. No buses at times to link with any other main road buses or trains and no buses at all on a Sunday or after 7 at night. No trains on a Sunday even though most jobs involve working 5 from 7 days as my Son-in-Law does which means me getting up at 5am (Im a a pensioner) on a Sat and Sun to get him to work 18 miles away for 6.30am and in case anyone is wondering NO THERE ARE NO JOBS IN HIS SECURITY CAREER (FOR WHICH HE IS WELL QUALIFIED) AT ANY POINT NEARER OUR HOMES!!! Fuel costs us over £400 a month taking him work and the children to school and thats not counting any other intermittent trips to our main town over 40mls away for clothes, shoes, household major items or just for a night at the pictures!!!!
I really hope the government take notice of what you and the entire country is saying at the moment. the price of oil itself is not that expensive but the fact they add a fuel duty tax onto that and then VAT on top of that is absolutely disgraceful. Thanks for listening to the public and pushing so hard for this.
I followed, as best I could, the debate in parliament this afternoon.
