Why petrol pump strike

The petrol pump strike is over, but drivers still aren’t happy.

A nationwide strike by petrol station staff has come to an end after three days. The staff are unhappy about a change in how the government deals with fuel tax. But drivers say they’re still angry about the disruption.

Why are petrol station staff striking?

“Petrol pumps at garages across the country have been out of action for three days.”

“Staff at 2,000 stations were meant to be taking part in the strike. It’s all over now but it’s caused a lot of anger and frustration for drivers.”

What happened?

The nationwide strike was called by trade union Unite and began on October 24th. Staff walked out over changes made to how fuel duty is paid by businesses and how much money goes back into road repairs. The government says that it’s put more money into roads than ever before, but Unite claims that because of changes made last year, more money is going back into central government coffers rather than being spent on roads.

Why is New Year celebrated

The New Year is a time for people to celebrate the end of the year and the start of a new one.

The New Year is a time for people to celebrate the end of the year and the start of a new one. It’s an opportunity to reflect on what has happened in your life over the last 12 months and plan for what you want to achieve in your life over the next 12 months. It’s also a time when people from around the world get together with their family and friends, and enjoy food, drink, fireworks and parties. In fact, more than 200 countries around the world celebrate New Year at some point during January or February.

In 2019, New Year’s Eve was celebrated on December 31st. The date changes every year as it depends on when Christmas Day falls. This means that in 2020, New Year’s Eve will be celebrated on January 1st.

Why is there a leap year

The leap year is added to our calendars to keep them in sync with the earth’s orbit.

The leap year is an additional day added to the calendar every four years, which brings the total number of days in a year to 366. This is because the earth doesn’t complete its orbit around the sun in 365 days and 6 hours, so it needs a little extra time to catch up. The extra day that’s added on February 29th each year was first introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BC, when he created what we now know as the Julian calendar.

It’s thought that Julius Caesar had been advised by astronomers at his time that it would take a little over 365 days for one complete cycle of the seasons, so he decided to add an extra day every four years. However, this created problems for those who were already living at that time. The Julian calendar was implemented before Christ was born, so it didn’t account for Jesus Christ’s birth and therefore Christmas celebrations were often held on December 25th rather than December 25th. There were also some problems with Easter being celebrated at different times depending on where you lived.

In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII introduced his own version of the Julian calendar called Gregorian Calendar (named after himself). This updated version fixed some of these issues by shortening some months and making sure there was always an even number of days in a year. It also changed how leap years worked by only adding one extra day every four years instead of every four years.
