I just knew it would be too complicated for an idiot like you to understand.

Have you got the joke about "What causes more damage in a crash - a car or
a bike"? yet?

Dave - the small piece of 14th century armour used to protect the armpit.

A whole 30s must of been dreadful!

I suspect you had plenty more delays since the roads around there are
almost allways busy.

I normally use the A23 but there was 40 min delays due to roadworks. This
event occured near purley where the road is still single carraigeway.

Only twice Tom?

You are lucky.

I pay as a motorist, cyclist, homeowner, earner, saver, spender, the list
goes on...

Frankly I think the system sucks. They should load up the tax on fuel to
ensure that those who: damage the roads the most, take up more than their
fair share of road space, pollute, cause danger an inconvenience to others,
and use the public highway for commercial gain, pay their fair share.

The "penny on a litre" due in April is pathetic. In a fairly economical car
that is 1p per 10 miles. This Labour government are pandering to the
system-sucking right wing scum

Yes he is. That is because Medway does not possess the skill to cycle, or
even drive safely.
