Humour me by casting your mind back just a few weeks, Before this laughable little snow flurry hit the UK .....at a time before national hysteria/siberian winters and the new Ice age dominated the headlines. It was the official line that people who drove 4 x 4 vehicles were quite simply the root of all evil. There was no distinction between those that used them as intended or required them for transport in the areas they lived in, or needed them for work......against those muppets who drove them as a status symbol.( Im thinking Chelsea Tractor drivers here ) Eco-loons vandalising 4x4's, Government levies/tax on them and proposed increased for the congestion charge for using them etc.....It was the in-thing to penalise the vehicle and belittle the owner. Now in the middle of our " Siberian Winter " we have numerous stories of people organising the use of their privately owned 4x4's to deliver meals on wheels...enabling house calls from nurses and doctors....recovering stranded motorists...lending vehicles to enable pregnent women to get to hospital...towing ambulances with stricken patients then returning to ferry transplant organs to the hospital...etc ..etc http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1242966/4x4-motorist-tows-snow-stricken-ambulance-carrying-kidney-transplant-patient-hospital--goes-collect-new-organs.html Do you reckon these eco-loons feel any kind of guilt for their rabid outpourings, or some government busy-body regretting their fanatic actions?...maybe even thinking " hell, it does appear that these vehicles are essential out in the boondocks...lets give them an easier time " I do not own a car, only a motorbike.Been using a borrowed one off me Dad for the past few weeks, so I am not a 4x4 fanboy by the way.
