Mental

Why are we so feckin useless in the uk I only came in to get some breakfast turned on the telly and on the bbc there is a news special on the snow.
They have a man from the RAC telling every one to slow down and he said if the car in front starts to slide then keep your distance! well no sh#t.
Of course the next line is If your journey is not important then stay at home
I bet most of the people going out are doing so to empty the shelves of their local tesco in case these ARTIC conditions are here for the next 2 days.

Once again we get a little snow and life comes to a standstill.

I am pretty sure we are now officially the laughing stock of Europe.

Sorry for the rant I just needed to vent my disgust how stupid we look to the rest of the world.

Not just the laughing stock of europe; the euro star debacle has made it onto Japanese news. Japanese must think you brits are all a bit wussy i reckon. Takes an earthquake to stop the Shinkansen (bullet train).
