‘The river Thames was left undredged to prevent the disturbance of a rare mollusk called the depressed river mussel. Seriously, this is not funny. It would only be funny if it were not happening. But it is. The species known as the depressed taxpayer doesn’t seem to be on any priority list.’

And their never locals either, these are people who come from all over, protest one thing or another, demand we change our laws and policies to meet their standards and they don't even live here! what's up with that?
Not sure what homer has to do with the concise and logical summation supplied by "stumason". also, never heard of something called a "trades description act". sounds foreign. and stupid.

The only thing that can't be denied is this, when your dealing with the English, you should deny arrogance, that's all they bring to the table. To quote my wee Scots Mother-in-law, the only thing the English are good for is fertilizing your fields.
