The Cheeky B@stards

Not content with getting a 45c/gallon tax-break for everything they produce, US ethanol makers are now imploring the US government to tie any potential bailout of the US auto industry to the increased production of ethanol-friendly vehicles.

Describing the proposed bailout as "probably a good thing," Robert Dineen, the president of the Renewable Fuels Association, went on to ask for more: "How about a more specific commitment to flex-fuel vehicles" or "some additional infrastructure for e-85 (a high-ethanol blend fuel)?"

How about you make you industry stand on its own two feet Mr Dineen?

I thought I saw his name on the side of a loaf of bread in Asda yesterday, then I realised I didn't, it just said Thick Cut.
