Have your say

So it seems last week’s hysteria over petrol running out is finally over.

What was happening around petrol stations up and down the country was unbelievable.

It looked like a scene from a disaster movie.

All those cars queued up was reminiscent of footage you see from a war-torn country whose fuel supplies had been cut off.

But we’re not at war!

The tanker drivers hadn’t even gone on strike yet and everyone was going crazy.

And as for the poor woman who filled up jugs of petrol in her kitchen while the gas hob was on.

In the next edition of the Oxford English Dictionary under the word stupid there should just be a picture of this lady.
