    That floppy haired idiot Branson is having the entire Country "dug up" to put fibre optic broadband for "all" down

    I spoke to the blokes who are doing it and said " waste of time all this, no fkr wants it nor cares, it wont work right", he fkn agreed!
    Our Town looks like it has been bombed with everything dug up. fkn madness.
    Massive pot holes everywhere but lets spend 20billion quid doing this ******. I despair.

    A guy I know, very well off and a bit of a car collector (usually seen in Bently or Audi R8 etc) pulled up in a Tesla,
    He just said "I wanted to hate it but can't stop driving it"....

    Yup, and they are now starting to be brainwashed by it and think its actually all going to be "OK", tick tock idiots, its not, the World is going to end one day, and it will be sooner than most think.
    I look back at my life now and selfishly, think "thank fk I was born in '61", had all the good stuff, no war, rationing, slave labour in textile mills for 60years like my Mum had to do while the mill owners wasted money etc etc

    If I can eek out 10 more years of "sorta freedom" Ill be happy.

    I have this saying on my wall in the kitchen:

    "YOU don't work for money, YOU work for the greed of someone else, YOU get just enough to stay alive, like slaves and serfs"
    ...Gives me a reality check each day

    Snow...and electric cars !?
    Has anyone thought it through?
    If all cars were electrically powered.....
    Imagine three hours of traffic jam, battery flat, what are you going to do ?


    There is practically no heating in an electric vehicle over extended periods
    If you are stuck in traffic during the night, no battery energy left, no heating !!!
    Call the breakdown services to collect women and children !!
    They can’t even get there because the roads are choked !!
    When the road is cleared no one can move, (flat batteries) !!
    How are the hundreds or thousands of cars going to be recharged ?
    It’s going to be the same in the summer traffic jams.
    That’s going to be perpetual jams with dead batteries.

    The same can be said for petrol and diesel cars in such a situation. Only difference is you won't be choking on all those exhaust fumes.
    The internal combustion has had it's day, well over a century in fact. Time for it to be replaced.
