GenaP you are so damned right about those Labour politicians.

My wife went to Brighouse (near Halifax) for job interview. It tok her one hour in the car.
We looked at trains and it would cost 24 a day, she'd have to leave home at 6.30am to get there for 9am and would take just over 2 hours for return journey.
Also it involved 3 changes of train

I walk to work cos it`s only across the road from where I live, which is great, but I like driving, and pay enough for the privilege, I think it`s crazy the way the motorist is being treated.
A couple of weeks ago, a woman was mugged, and had her handbag stolen, she left lying on the ground while the police were 200 yards up the road checking the tyres on a car they`d pulled over. My brother stayed with her, for 20 minutes while the police caried on with what they were doing..... when they got to where the woman was, they did`nt even ask in what direction the guy fled, and told the woman she should`nt hold out any hope of him being caught. maddness.  >

The states have decided to do away with our car tax and in future we will pay more for fuel from the end of the year.  I think this is a great idea as there are those who drive around without paying for their car tax and getting away with it, but now there is no way out.  You drive your car, you need petrol and therefore they are getting their tax via that way.  


I am a fairy princess, what is your wish.....

The down side of this is that more people will drive with no insurance   Good in principle though

Then it should be a legal requirement to display proof of insurance

Soon all cars will go through a big brother check, even when driving..

Re insurance, this is vital...

Did you see the article 'Speeding drivers not fined' on todays BBC news website today which stated half of drivers caught by speed cameras get off free.

Quoted from GenaP

The most annoying bit is seeing all these powerful people saying we've got to do something, then seeing the carnage caused by the Labour Party Conference in Manc city centre - dozens of big cars chauffeuring single passengers back & forward, often with police escorts, police vans, cars & bikes sitting with their engines idling over & diversions increasing the distance people have to travel & creating traffic hell - a clear case of "Do as we say, not as we do."  



What else do we expect from our "glorious" Labour govt though?
