Just for oil

Frit and Mrs Frit were unable to avoid providing dinner to two members of the teaching profession last night. They spent the first half of the meal lamenting the price of fuel and the current cost of driving the two hundred miles from their home to their holiday home in their two litre car at weekends. The second half of the meal they spent berating George Bush for invading Iraq “just for the oil”. Even worse, one of them appeared to imply that the fine port they were served had been adulterated with “cherry juice”!
