Re: petrol prices

They're c**ts mate, feckin sick of this country.
Feckin ministers doing a national budget and most of them couldn't even balance their expenses.

WHO IS THE ODD MAN OUT

Lord Stevenson: former chairman, HBOS

Sir Fred Goodwin: former chief executive, RBS

Andy Hornby: former chief executive, HBOS

Sir Tom McKillop: former chairman, RBS

John McFall MP: chairman of Treasury Select Committee

Alastair Darling: Chancellor of the Exchequer

Gordon Brown: Prime Minister and former Chancellor

Sir Terry Wogan: presenter of Radio 2's Breakfast Show


You're probably thinking

Terry Wogan.

You're right.

However, the reason may surprise you...........

Terry Wogan is the only one out of this motley crew who actually holds any formal banking qualification!

Re: petrol prices

Petrol prices are increasing day by day..I have heard that in pakistan the pertrol price rises after every 2 months.One of my close friend lives there and he told me that they are charging 1$ pr litre to them so they start converting their cars on LPG which costs them less then using pertrol..

Mr fusiion I believe it was called. Good idea but not much chance of popping into the future to get one. Alternatively plutonium is widely available from the libyians at the min and can't be any dearer than super or 99!

Re: petrol prices

Plutonium is good and if I recall correctly generates 1.21 gigawatts of power, which converts to approx 1,645,142 BHP.
Plutonium is about US$4,000 per gram, which I do believe is cheaper than some motorway service stations, especially those based along the M6 and M1 corridor.
Does any one have a phone number for the Libyans ?
