The fastest growing petition on the 10 Downing Street website is one which asks that ‘road-pricing’ and associated plans be abolished, or removed from future plans for this lousy government of ours!Now I think I’ve said it before, but I’ll repeat it, there’s absolutely no harm in visiting the website and signing up for this, or indeed any other petition on the pages; but before you click over, and spend a fraction of your time adding your name, e-mail etc. to the over-400,000 other signers of this particular petition, just remember who you are asking to remove something which will raise an awful lot of money for that self-same Government!
In a post upon another blog to which I contribute the occasional piece, I write in support of the freedom to own a gun!
I would like to mirror that post, with a quotation from the ‘Old West’!
“The Lord, He made men short and tall,
In stations low and regal.
The Lord, He made them large and small;
Sam Colt — he made them equal.”
Wandered onto an American food safety site, and came away as though I’d been hit with a large wet, flat fish across the face!
Seems as though, all the years I’ve been taking my wife (and sometimes family as well) I’ve been placing them in grave danger, according to some advice on this same website!
Before ordering our food, apparently I should have called out, presuma-bly in a loud voice, to “ask that your food be prepared without partially hydrogenated vegetable oil” as cooking in this substance considerably raises the risks of heart disease!
Where do these people come from?
Nice to see that the Johannesburg Traffic Police are really on the ball when it comes to ‘roadworthy’ vehicles!!!
Just heard about Naseem Hamid’s removal from the lists of the great and good!
They’ve taken his M.B.E. off him, describing his actions of crashing his souped-up sports car and breaking every major bone in his innocent victim’s body as totally unacceptable!
First class, and long may this attitude continue!!!
