Agreed the road laws are getting daft speed cameras etc.
Also agreed take the Great out of Britain please.
I would personally leave due to the anti social behaviour and not being able to touch these hoody bastard yobs as they are too young.Too many crazy E,U rights.
However to leave for a smoking ban ,well Im not even going to waste my breath.
I personally don't blame him. I think Health and Saftey has gone too far. I read in my local paper that firemen, or sorry should I be pc and use the term firefighters are banned from using ladders too take down some festive bunting after a local festival as it's "too dangerous" FFS .
AS for speed cameras, yep I can understand having them in blackspot areas, but I do feel many of them are there purely for the purpose of making money, if a motorist is inadvertently travelling a little too fast, I feel they can cause more accidents, with motorists not realising they're there 'til the last minute. I personally feel that flashing "Slow Down" signs are more effective.
As regards anti social behaviour, I feel I live in chav town. One seemed to give me a dirty look as I was getting in my car the other night, nothing flash just a W Reg Vauxhall Corsa. Where I live isn't too bad, but for the groups of chavs who hang around , I nearly always go out in my car , as if I walk it would mean I pass them, and as a lone female it does scare me somewhat.
Regarding the smoking ban, I find I tend to smoke off and on, I've found roll ups less addictive than cigarettes. I can understand smoking being banned in work areas, but this law goes too far. I would have thought with pubs/restuarants it would be left up to the landlord to make his or her decision, after all it's their livelyhood that's at steak, or not as the case may be. I don't like smoking whilst I'm eating, so I would choose a non smoking area.
I am sick of this goverenment telling me what I cannot do, what next??? Tax fattening foods to the hilt in an attempt to stop obesity, promote healthy eating ??? . How will that work, unless the poorest and most unfit people can afford healthy food, as the healthier food is usually more expensive than the less healthy alternatives.
I'm going slightly mad,
It finally happened, I'm slightly mad , just very slightly mad
If you feel a little glum to Hergest Ridge you should come.
I'm challenging taboos surrounding mental health
