None of us, I suspect, enjoys paying high prices for our petrol, but the announcement by Shell and BP of record profits this morning has been met by official dismay at the BBC. All morning there has been studied rumination over just how greedy these oil companies really are and why it is that with such large profits they cannot lower the price of the petrol that they sell on the forecourt. There has been precious little discussion on the fact that 60% of the forecourt price of petrol goes to Mr Broon and his grasping greedy government. I wonder why it is that the BBC does not question why government has failed to give us a break by taking a smaller cut of what the motorist is asked to pay?
