was a headline somewhere today. hmm, maybe the freak weather?
SOMEONE MUST BE BLAMED!
If they weren't travelling, there would have been little to no travel chaos.
because they couldn't. Not in London anyway.
there can't have been any travel related chaos. Problem sorted.
WTF? It's clearly hyperbolic crap. It probably cost us thruppence.
if you can go out of business in one day, you must be a pretty shit business
"Russia has no trouble dealing with this sort of weather!"
Well fuck me, it's like that half the fucking year. Investing in snow ploughs is going to get you some sort of return isn't it. Imagine being on that particular government section in this country?
"After 18 long years finally their time has come again..." (Meanwhile they've been on 25 grand a year to sit on their butts.)
they sit idle for 11 months of the year and now it's their chance for glory
that's the worst excuse ever
"Here, we'll pay you to make sure the roads are clear"
*6 months later*
"Er, why aren't the roads clear? We paid you lots of moolah"
"We were busy doing, er, other things"
"Oh. I see. OK then - good job! Here's more money for next year!"
I stand by my misplaced sardonic comments
is done as part of the general refuse contract. same staff, same company.
JAMAICA SEEMS TO BE DOING FINE
whilst it's true that this weather is disproportionate to what we're used to here, I didn't see a single grit truck in the last week, or see much grit laid down, when we all knew this weather was coming. My colleague didn't either - he's in Pimilico, I'm in Highbury.
Contrasted to November and December when they were all over the place, and it seems like the companies were too rigid in their schedules to get trucks out over the last 7 days, until it was too late.

I'm slip sliding all over the board.
"the roads aren't even gritted! it's like a third world country!" said one man.
yes, that's exactly the kind of problem that someone has to face in a third world country. i look forward to seeing bono on the TV later this week. "every time i click my fingers, an old lady falls over"
are people supposed to fit studded tyres for the one day every four years that they might need them?
People were on the news and on the internet saying it was pathetic and diabolical that lack of action. Idiots.
Have we finished talking about the snow yet? Good.
HAVE YOU SEEN IT?!

I LICK YOUR BOOM BOOM DOWN
I lick your boom boom down?
I MUST KNOW!
"It threatened to engulf my big toe!"
