Fuel protests 'causing no panic'
Is one of the lead stories,
Except for the fact that in Liverpool, There is mass panic buying, long queues petrol rationing, by retailers, limiting the amount you can buy to £20 and ASDA has sold out of petrol in all of its stations in Liverpool.
There are no signs of motorists panic-buying at petrol pumps ahead of planned refinery blockades, fuel retailers have told BBC News.
Why is the BBC misreporting the news? and so blatantly?
There can only be one answer, they have been asked/told by the goverment to play down the fuel protests to try and weeken public support for them.
All I can say is that I am out raged.
I have already made use of this form to contact the BBC about the accurcey of their reporting, I would ask that you please do the same.
You will need this URL http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4236676.stm
To complain spacificly about this artical.

The secret is a liquid dip that fortifies thin sheets of Kevlar, rendering them nearly impenetrable. Norman Wagner, a chemical engineer at the University of Delaware, developed the strength-enhancing substance after studying liquids whose viscosity or stiffness loosens up when they are stirred or shaken (latex paint, for instance). He then became interested in other liquids that do just the oppositeÂbecoming more resistant when suddenly disturbedÂand started experimenting with ways to exploit that property.
Just what I need for that trip to the end of the road, or next time i get a late night bus thought that not so safe part of town.
