Fuel Protesters May Make Villa Visit A Nightmare

Aston Villa's trip to the City of Manchester Stadium this Saturday, 1st May 2010 might end up being a travelling nightmare as fuel protesters intend causing travel chaos.

The Huddersfield Daily Examiner is reporting...

'A GO-SLOW fuel protest could be about to hit the M62.'

'The protest, due on May 1, is being co-ordinated by bikers' groups in Yorkshire and Lancashire, angered by soaring petrol prices.'

'They [protesters] plan to take up all lanes at speeds no greater than 25mph until they reach Manchester Town Hall, where they will be met by more protesters on foot.'


Aston Villa take on Manchester City this Saturday May 1 at Eastlands. Kick off is at 3pm.

Personally if I wasn't watching the match I'd be joining them, in my car. Fuel prices MUST come down.

If I didn't live so far away I might even join the protesters as well. I wonder if they have anything planned in the south of England?

Just go on Friday night and stay in a travel lodge, no big deal. I'm worried you might get David Villa on "emergency" loan before then though.

Would pay to find out where that Travelodge would be! :-)

Travelodge - yuk.

What about Premier Inn? Lenny Henry makes it sound so good with his disasterously unfunny adverts.

Premier Inn - ah, now that's more like it! (lol)

Poor Lenny. On the plus side he's just shed about 19 stone!

Hahaha

Good thing the rags aren't playing at home then - the sight of an empty Old Toilet might not look too good on the Sky cameras.
