Yet again, games are in the firing line and now I’m getting really angry.

Forcing Religion On People

Saturday, December 16th, 2006

I’m sure that most people will have had an encounter with Jehovahs Witnesses at least once. If you are a Jehovahs Witness, then I make no apology if you are offended by the content of this post, its just unfortunate that you are a part of a religion that so openly forces itself on people. And to be perfectly honest, I’m sick of it. (more…)

Lane Markings? What are they?

Friday, December 16th, 2005

Been a while since I posted, so its time for a rant. I’m pretty certain that everyone who drives will have had one or two dodgey experiences where you’ve ended up in the wrong lane whilst driving. We are all human and we all make mistakes, but you’d think that people who travel at peak times probably do it every day and as such, should know the lanes on the roads they use. (more…)

Everytime I read a story like this one I wonder just how much more of our personal responsibility for our own welfare we’ll be parming off on someone else over the next 10 years or so. (more…)

Computeach Ad

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

I really am quite tempted to write to the ASA about the Computeach ads that are currently airing on Channel 4 et al.

The ad goes something like ‘I’m a software engineer, working from home spending more time with family’… the guy saying it is drilling a hole in the road. Now, given that these guys sell IT training, you have to assume that they are saying being a software engineer, a web designer or an IT manager is better than your current job. Well, in some respects it could be, but they don’t exactly give you the whole picture, so here’s a few comments from the other side of the fence. (more…)

Congestion Charge On The Railway

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

We heard recently about the road charging proposals… so, as a motorist I think to myself, I like my car, but I’ve commuted on the train before… its not so bad and for places like London, its great. Now this… ‘ Rail ‘congestion charge’ proposed’ (more…)

£1mil To Encourage Minorities Into Countryside

Friday, June 10th, 2005

Unless I’m blind or just really unobservant, I don’t actually recall seeing any signs or any other items which may or may not deter the minorities of this country venturing into the countryside… they would use the same roads as the rest of us… the same means of transport… the same footpaths… so why is £1mil going to be spent trying to encourage the minorities into the countryside?

Road Charges Could Crucify The Less Well Off

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

Here we are on the verge of what I can only describe a one hell of a messed up scheme designed to address the increasing levels of congestion on the countries roads. So, as a motorist, here’s what I think about it. (more…)
