    Brexit triggers scam.

    EXPOSED: Fuel fatcats are using Brexit as an EXCUSE to rip off British motorists

    FUEL fatcats are using doomsday claims about the economic consequences of Brexit to keep petrol prices high and rip-off British motorists, it can be revealed today. Says Nick Gutteridge of The Daily Express.

    Find the report HERE

    Big corporations have been using the “cloak” arguments about post-Brexit Britain which do not stack up to justify sky-high prices at the pumps, a leading campaign group has unearthed.

    FairFuelUK has revealed how, even though wholesale oil prices have tumbled since June 23, the amount it costs to fill up a family car has not budged at all.

    The group, which is campaigning to bring down Britain’s fuel prices, said the “only reason we can find to justify this is speculation driven by a cloak of supposed market uncertainty”.




    Of course, we all knew that the sharks would be the first to use Brexit as an excuse for putting up prices, but this is one price-rise that is not connected to the withdrawal from Europe.

    Yep, like with many other institutions, we can expect Brexit to be used to claim that they are being damaged by withdrawing from Europe.

    We will not know anything for sure here until after the actual withdrawal.

    And, I don't think that Theresa May is going to trigger article 50 until she has everything her way. This could take a very long time.

    This seems to be getting discussed across all of the ROB sub-forums. That goes to show just how important Brexit is to the people of Britain.

    I am now wishing we could just do it and get on with the job as this no-man's land is not good for anybody.

    I agree Angie, as this long-drawn-out action is doing most of our head's in.

    Sadly it may take a very long time before we are free of the machinations of the European Commission.
