Fly tipping costs us all

I have a nephew who's job amongst other things is clearing up after fly tippers. Often it is beauty spots that are blighted by the thoughtless actions of others. Selfishness would be a better description but in reality it is not even laziness it is stupidity. The person has thought about how they can tip stuff and they have not been lazy just plain stupidity. How can any sane person go to the trouble and effort of seeking out a quiet spot to tip their rubbish when the council operates refuse tips open seven days a week  where it is free to dispose of their rubbish, but no people still seek out beauty spots to dedicate with their unwanted rubbish. It is despicable and criminal which brings me to the point of this post. I read today Liverpool have prosecuted more people for flytipping than any other council in the country.
I wish to congratulate them and at the same time berate every other council in the country and tell them they are failing us the people who pay and that we don't want to pay for clearing up the rubbish of the minority who think someone else can clean up after them. I want everyone to rise to the challenge. Prosecute those stupid people who blight our countryside. Clean up your act council's put them before the courts and do it now.

Brexit when will it ever happen ?

I voted to stay so will always give  a biased view on brexit but even as a remainer I am getting concerned about the plans or should I say lack of plans regarding our exit. No one seems to know who or what is happening! Even Teresa May had to phone the bloke in charge of the EU to reassure him we were actually doing something. I don't think we are doing sod all other than blame everything on the news x t guy.

Clinton for president

I cannot stand Donald Trump so the alternative is Clinton.  See I know this stuff and I worked it out all on my own without any help from a grown up. Trim ok has flagged off women Mexican people gays and just about every minority in the USA and every Muslim anywhere in the world and still people vote for him! All I can say is if it's a protest vote you must sure be pissed with America's politics to even consider voting for Trump let alone actually going ahead and doing it. I get all the stuff about jobs etc. But if you really think Trump can give a toss about you once he was in office your more deluded than me. And I know Jack about your politics.  Clinton at least has some knowledge of the world Trump  wouldn't know if a map of the world was upside down, he can only tell now if the names of countries are up the right way! Take away the writing and he would get it wrong twice on the trot and there is only two ways  for the answer to go.

More about the condition of Kent's roads

Who's fault is it that the roads are in a state of permanent disrepair? Is it the car driver's after all if they didn't dive their cars over the roads they wouldn't  need repair would they? I know blame the lorry driver's great big heavy things weighing ever more and racing up and down our road network.
I don't blame any of the above!
I blame central government. I have driven a car all of my life, I know I cannot drive any longer yes yet another thing multiple sclerosis has robbed me of.  I have been on the road paying taxes into centralized government since I was sixteen. That's road fund licenses for forty five years. Tax on every gallon of fuel I have ever purchased and tax on oil tyres and every other consumable related to me owing a car. Now in my dottage I am in a wheelchair and being driven around in the back of a car that is wheelchair accessible and I feel every bump and lump of the road surface. The roads are in such a state it will take ten years to repair them and billions of pounds to fund those repairs according to last Saturday's Time's newspaper. What I want to know is why. Every single car lorry or motor cycle has paid in, not strictly true foreign lorries don't pay tax for using our roads and with modern day vehicles being so fuel efficient they don't even buy fuel over here it is cheaper to fill up in France with enough diesel to last the entire time they are here hence they get to use our road network for free even NOT paying tolls like the Dartford crossing.
This may sound like I am moaning and yes damned right I am. This government like countless others before it have taken our taxes and shot changed us. I can take you to roads near me here in Margate that have not been touched in eighty years since they were first made that have never had anything spent on the. A road with a hundred home must have at least one hundred cars some have two or three, my household once had five and all that tax collected gets very little in return. So yes I will moan I think in forty five years of being taxed till I squeak I am entitled to moan
