Featured in the August 2008 handbook.

I pulled into the supermarket petrol station the other day.

There I got the shock of my life, the price of Petrol

Had gone through the roof. Well, like me, a lot of people

Can't understand why petrol prices are rising daily.

Then I sat down and worked it out. Yes I GRANDAD, have worked it out.

Well apparently it is due to the OIL shortage.

We all know that the OIL comes from many places, the

Middle East, the USA, plus of course other places, including

The North Sea.

Now we have spent millions of pounds looking for, finding and

Actually getting the OIL out of the North Sea.

So how come we have an oil shortage here in our country?

Nobody bothered to check the oil.

We just didn't know we were getting low.

When you check the oil in your vehicle

You simply pull up the dipstick and look.

Well there is the problem that we have

OUR OIL is located in......

The North Sea

OUR DIPSTICKS are located in......

Westminster !!!
