THE GREAT LEWIS FUEL RIP-OFF
Since moving back to the island in August after 10 years on the mainland, the first time I ever had to pay over £100.00 to fill my tank was my first fill-up back in SY.
Shocking. And again I say, Shocking.
LIKE THE BANKS
Everyone knows about the mercenary rapacity of the banks posting obscene profits while every one else suffers. Well, this is exactly the same.
It is obvious that the people selling the fuel have all agreed that it would work against them to compete with each other as the inevitable result would be that they would have to drop their prices - they would all lose out. Better to agree to keep them up.
It is common knowledge that fuel retailers make a very slim profit margin - that doesn't stop healthy competition on the mainland. But it does here. Why? GREED GREED GREED GREED GREED GREED GREED GREED GREED.
NO MORE INERTIA
People of Lewis - are you listening? NO MORE INERTIA.
No more shrugging of the shoulders and hoping someone else will bang on the doors of these robbers - yes - ROBBERS. These people are in collusion - agreement - aiding and abetting.
OK people, what are we going to do about it? Let's get organised.
