Yesterday's fuel protests by road hauliers organised by Transaction 2007 did achieve excellent mass media coverage.
Clearly Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his glove puppet of a Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling have had their Whitsun holiday interrupted, and they are now waffling about somehow exhorting international oil exporting countries to increase production, something which has never worked in the past.
They are also giving mixed signals about the issue of the October fuel duty increase - is it going to be scrapped or not ?
The media have also piled on the political pressure by claiming that there is also going to be reversal of the unfair increase in car tax on vehicles registered after 2001 (why could this not just apply to new vehicles ?), quoting Cabinet Ministers Jack Straw and John Hutton, but there seems to be some backsliding on this from the Treasury.
There also seems to be some media spin about as yet undefined promises to Do Something About "fuel poverty".
Is that going to be another 10p tax fiasco bribe, if so, where does the money come from ?
Will it involve another intrusive, demeaning and wasteful bureaucratic disaster like Gordon Brown's tax credit system ?
Meanwhile, Tuesday's electricity power cuts, affecting hundreds of thousands of consumers, including hospitals etc. show how precarious the National Grid is, due to the lack of investment, caused by Gordon Brown's taxation policies.
The fact that the electricity companies deliberately withheld details from the public, of when electricity supplies were likely to be restored, for "commercial market reasons", show another aspect of the dubious Enron style energy speculation artificial market which was introduced by this Labour Government.
Surely this highly regulated market has failed, once there are actual power cuts to hospitals etc., and trading in energy capacity futures should be temporarily suspended ?
There was also news yesterday that the de-commissioning costs of old nuclear power stations is set to increase by an unknown number of billions of pounds, from the current £73 billion estimate.
Everywhere you look, there is a Fuel Crisis, over which this Government is failing - they only ever seem to promise to "tackle" or "address" such problems, but they never actually "solve" any of them.
There is a window of opportunity to get the Government to change their wretched energy and fuel policies, in the hope of saving themselves from political oblivion, provided that the angry public keep up the pressure on them.
Keep protesting and keep lobbying the politicians (of all parties).
