Having made a complete dog’s breakfast of the non-strike by fuel delivery drivers that has resulted in the circus at the petrol pumps, the Mail had this to say:
Yesterday, the Liberal Democrat half of the Coalition pantomime horse joined the chaos, with Ed Davey managing to contradict himself over how low drivers should allow their fuel tanks to go within the space of only a few hours.
That conjured up such a wonderful image of the present government that I had to throw together the Photoshopped image above of Cowboy Dave on Champion the Blunder Horse.
The situation would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious in its consequences. Like the woman in York who suffered 40 per cent burns, presumably after following Francis Maude’s advice.
But you wonder if the Conservatives might be secretly pleased by all this media coverage as it takes attention away from George Osborne’s cack-handed budget.
Or worse, from International Development Minister, Andrew Mitchell, who has used highly dubious tactics to avoid paying £2.6 million in tax.
