NOTE: I've rewritten this post and redone the graphic. The original map on which I based the reconstruction, provided by the USGS, is distinctly different than the one the USGS provides today. The difference is, in fact, rather dramatic. In comparing the older and newer versions of the maps, I have decided to assume the later, more recent, version is more correct.

In her keynote speech to end the Tories’ annual conference in Birmingham, Mrs May will also issue a plea to angry Tory MPs to bury their bitter Brexit divisions and allow her to stay on as PM after our EU exit next March. Scrapping the inflation-linked fuel duty rise due next April saves motorists £1.20 every time they fill up a 60 litre average tank. It will cost the Treasury £800m. Driver Jade Louise has slammed … [Read more...] about Theresa May freezes fuel duty AGAIN in victory for The Sun and scraps 2p-a-litre tax rise as she bids to stay PM
