I can't drive so I don't much care.
And it's not true either - it's an 'everybody panic, life is rubbish isn't it even though we worked so hard to achieve our lower middle class (despite no real education) lifestyle' article in the Daily Mail once again.
I personally prefer to look on the bright side of life and just let my dog use the Daily Mail to do his business.
It was true. Even if you can't drive, you can walk to a garage and check if they ran out of petrol and diesel. The ones around me did.
And for non-UK people, the strike never happened. All that panic was for nothing.
