Don't panic!

I can't resist highlighting the contrasting stance that appears to be developing about fuel supplies and public transport today:
  1. First Minister boldly states today at FMQ's - "Clearly, it's a time when we need everyone, and the public's cooperation, to behave sensibly and responsibly, to cut out non-essential trips, to use public transport. The essential message is that the stocks of the available range of fuels will stretch into May and there is the capacity to import more if required. Scotland can cope with this difficulty".
  2. Lothian Buses, Edinburgh's main public transport provider, later in the very same afternoon promptly tell everyone they are about to run out of fuel and won't be able to run any buses within a couple of days!

Oh dear.
