Wishful thinking re: oil price?


Owen Law - Writer

This article was posted on the blog for my home county’s newspaper, The Shropshire Star. It’s about the world’s most farcical and least favorite dictator (as if any of them are popular!!?), Colonel Gaddafi (aka ‘Frizz-Face’ to his former subjects, they seek him here, they seek him there etc…) I agree with the sentiment – 0/10 to former ‘esteemed’ PM Tony Blair for ‘bringing him from the cold’ (ha, ha!! A man who now denies that the riots had anything to do with moral decline in Britain. As if he can lecture us on that score, but then I digress!)

Anyway, the last paragraph raised a wry smile for me. The writer believes that the sudden loosening of Gaddafi’s grip on Libya will bring an inevitable drop in petrol and diesel prices in Shropshire. Hmm…yeah…right! It could be little more than that, and don’t forget – we still pay 60% duty on our fuel in this country!

Still, we can dream…

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
