Bruin taxes motorists to hell-but rations salt!

#1
Bruin and his lot are exposed again.Motorists here,are some of the most highly taxed in the world,but road tax does not get the roads clear. WTF?

Blame the banks - their greed has caused the mess the UK is in. Blaming Brown is like stamping on a dying dog. Later, you can blame the blue team - if you like.

'Eff' all to do with the banks - the 'lame-brain' Brown had ten years or more to examine and control the banks' behaviour.

Stamp on the dog and stamp hard!

He, Brown - aided and abetted by the pusillanimous Bliar - has done more damage to this country than Napoleon, Kaiser Wilhelm II and Hitler combined!

Supporting Brown is sure sign of insanity!

No its "Your" local council who decide what to do for your "local" area including the roads.

You might say that the Government has placed a monitary constraint on the "local" council who have to decide what to spend cash on.

Maybe a few less lesbain outfeel helpers or fish health and safety inspectors and an eye out for the weather but its not directly Broons fault.








Indirectly he is a cokc of the first order but thats another thing :D .

Right on Phil. Have you seen the size of some of those bank vaults? Far too big just for keeping bankers' bonuses, Ferraris and Philippino love slaves.

I reckon those evil bankers are hoarding salt in their vaults as it's now more valuable than Sterling. The sooner Gordon chases them all away to Geneva, the better. We can then use the vault space to set up eco-friendly communes of lesbian vegetarians.

It depends on what salt because ordinary table salt will not thaw ice below about -12C.
You, Sir, look like a connor, connie, conner, gentleman who knows what he likes...

You can, er, taste the merchandise if you want.

A quick lick should do. Let's just go over here where it's more private, like?

Dont buy salt, buy winter tyres, with studs in. Rarer than rocking horse pooh in the UK i would guess:
Its not as if winter comes as a complete feckin surprise every year. Salting roads just turns the snow to a sugary type consistency making it easier for the snowploughs to hoof it out the way. Until the ploughs arrive, it just adds to the nightmare. Buy some winter tyres it makes all the difference. -18 outside my house now.

He taxes the hell out of 4x4 drivers, then local councils beg for their help to deliver services. Will 4x4 drivers see a rebate next year?

Salt is salt, sodium chloride, NaCl, there is only one type.
Typical bloody boring bedding storeman type attitude, repressing all attempts at private enterprise.

Balls Sir, Salt as in.

Salt is salt, sodium chloride, NaCl, there is only one type
So what about potassium chloride (KCl) as it is also a salt a metal halide salt.

There are a few more as well , try Potassium superoxide KO2.

Salt is not just salt my friend.

On the news tonight a county which had prudently ordered a consignment of salt in order to do what its voters and council taxpayers expect of it has had the order cancelled by central Govt. Because the Party knows best.

Just out of interest, how would people feel about the UK salt mines selling to the highest bidder even if that was from outside the UK? Do market forces really provide the solution to all ills or is that something that's only true when it's somebody else getting the shitty end of the stick?

Indeed! Guess who's been asked if he will make his 4x4 available this weekend to visit vulnerable people in the rural surrounds… I'm sure as soon as the snow melts I'll be back to No1 on the Councils hate list.

I don't know what it's like in your areas, but the snow is finally clearing from the main roads and the tarmac is showing through here (Gloucestershire).

The size of the pot holes appearing is astounding, some appear to be as big as the moon!
