Cheers for the response. I wasnt actually meaning to look like i was fuming and enraged. I think its often very easy to get confused with someone just
being quite passionate about what they are writing, or looking like some enraged lunatic!!
I will apologise to the OP for writing the post was pathetic and perhaps that was not the correct thing to write.Its just that i really cannot be
doing with people getting sucked into believing the rubbish the media write. I think its probably something that a lot of people grow out of. Depends
what paper you read as well. I do read tabloids sometimes, but only as a source of amusement because you can see the sensationalised bollocks they
churn out most days, of course, to sell papers, and make cash, which they do!!................
I think its better to have your own opinions, fromwhat you see out there for yourselves on the streets, roads and in the towns, cities and villages.
This snow business is blown out of proportion completely. Its starting to melt away up north now, and im sure it will follow suit around other parts
of the country, I am sure that cash points willbe filling up, mail is ariving and food is on shelves. Basically the panic was for nothing, the papers
sold a few papers and some people fell for it all, hook, line and sinker, again. Ive quoted numerous other examples of sensationalised crap the papers
churn out, and hope that more and more people start to think for themselves a bit more, instead of relying on unreliable sources, for information.
I appreciate you saying i am a good person. I try my best, although i unfortunately like everyone am very imperfect and that can be seen in my
original post where i have a tendency to rant and rave, until i calm down a little bit!!!.............Someone called me a macho man before, which i
felt was pretty sad. Theres nothing wrong with having a bit of fire in your belly and a bit of heart. I would much rather be like myself that somebody
gutless who gets spoon fed media crap every day and digests it all without even a fart or a burp.......
Letters to representatives is a nice sentiment. But in my experience they dont work all that well. I wrote a letter to my MP recently, and he didnt
even get back to me about the issue i raised. They have bigger fish to fry than dealing with a constituent that had an issue about council tax
exemptions on empty properties!!........I have to say i disagree with that point you raise. Getting changes in a system where those at the top make
decisions that detroy the welfare of the poor and working classes demonstrates the sort of arrogance where no moaning letter will do the job. That
letter probably ends up in the bin with a lot of the other letters whilst our mps and representatives saunter around, having meetings and wrapping
this country up in pretty packaging that hides huge problems on a scale that is almost impossible to tackle, and lets not forget, with no resources,
Its no wonder this country cannot deal with snow!! Why?? Because this country doesnt spend any money at all on its infrastructure. And when the # hits
the fan they hold an investigation into the matter. As if it wasnt obvious why public transport etc cannot cope in the first place. This country
pretends its still a force to be reckoned with, but lets face it, we are minnows.
Of course getting completely back on subject the standard of driving improving would help traffic flow, which would help the roads. I agree some
further training for those drivers that lack confidence would be good. Its easy for the more confident drivers to chastise those who arent very
efficient(me included) but that doesnt help anything. Common sense would help, Theres been plenty of good advice on this thread about what you should
do to deal with it,and plenty on the internet,
The OP continues to try and get his points across which is fair enough, but i think that the worst is over for now up north, the panic is over and the
roads are getting better in large parts of the north.Just continue as normal, get your normal levels of shopping in and chill out if you can help
it..........Its the x-factor semi final tonight and we can moan about that instead!!
