In denial

Finally someone has put Nelson's little dummy spit on youtube. I wonder if he drives a 30yo Torana?

Amazingly, I read recently that this knee-jerk popularism is spreading. According to the Sun Herald the 'Oil crisis rage spreads' and the French president Nicolas Sarkozy is calling for a cut it EU VAT taxes on oil.

In the UK, Gordon Brown is facing petrol price protests:

In the US, Hillary is planning a petrol tax cutting holiday.

And in New Zealand, Helen Clark has sold out on petrol taxes.

Pop-psychologists say that denial is the first stage of grief. Are we there yet, or have we moved into anger?
