Army ready and waiting to deliver petrol to areas around Lincolnshire and the UK
After saying the Army would not be put on standby to deliver petrol to Lincolnshire and other parts of the UK, the Prime Minister has once again changed his mind.
First, we had that important message from Boris Johnson, “So we are saying don’t go to work, go to work, don’t take public transport go to work, don’t go to work”, and now we have had another important message.
It was announced that the Army would be put on standby to deliver petrol to Lincolnshire and other parts of the country, and then Boris on Monday afternoon said they would not be put on standby.
When it came to the evening of Monday, Boris Johnson then announced that the Government would be put the Army on standby to deliver petrol. It is no wonder the people of Boston, Louth, Skegness, Grantham, Grimsby, Cleethorpes, and the rest of Lincolnshire are confused.
After Boris Johnson has finally seen sense and made up his mind to put the Army on standby, it could mean the petrol shortage problem could be over by the weekend. That is, if Boris Johnson does not change his mind again.
Army tanker drivers are ready and waiting to help ease the petrol shortage problem and stop the panic buying according to the Government.
It was announced that military drivers are currently receiving specialised training, so they are ready to deliver petrol to designated petrol stations across Lincolnshire and the country.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said: “The men and women of our armed forces stand ready to alleviate the transport pressures where they are felt most.
“That is why I have authorised their increased preparedness, so they are ready to respond if needed.”
With more petrol companies putting a £30 limit on the amount of petrol they can buy, and with news that the Army are ready and waiting to deliver petrol, the Government are hoping it will calm people down.
