Government must be losing an absolute fortune in tax from the fuel pump, just when they need it most.

Can't help thinking it'll be us as tax payers who somehow end up footing the bill.

This thread is all about looking at any positives we can find e.g. the lawn has been mown in perfect Wembley stripes and looks good. I will mow it again tomorrow.

More positives, from a personal experience:
1) Virgin Media have given a second month of so many megabites of data and minutes of calls free that I could be on the phone forever.
2) Eurosport have given a second free month on their subscription.
