Its a crisis but next sentence "situation is improving", next sentence its "Army to be deployed"

I mean they play word salad and ambiguous games all the time but that is taking the utter p*ss and no one even questions it

So its a crisis that's improving (meaning it ain't a crisis if its improving) but the army are being deployed despite the situation improving before they are deployed, ie meaning they aren't needed then?

How well, if you can ever make sense or logic out of these people good luck, ie you can't make sense or logic out of it because its senseless illogical c*ap.

The army on the streets is through the back door, they've wanted this since day 1 of the scamodemic but they couldn't get it in, so its back to the tip toe, frog in a boiling pan way of doing things again.

Lol Army on the streets, are you for real SS

Some 150 military drivers are ready to drive the fuel tankers, with another 150 Army personnel ready to support them.


OMG 150 drivers with the same number to support. Is basically the same as living under martial law isn’t in ss?

The army on the streets is through the back door…
Oh grow up. Unless you live in the Vatican and think every country has an army the size of the Swiss Guards , then 159 drivers is a million miles away from the army on the streets.
These 150 are barely enough to make much difference in actually getting fuel out, government had to be seen to be doing something.
