All aboard Postman Pats bus!
No wonder the country is bankrupt!

The state provision of outrage buses must cost a fortune given the unbelievably low bar for entry to ones youman right to express ones outrage of the outrageous and the ridiculous. I bet if people had to pay for their own outrage bus and travel permits, the level of outrage would diminish considerably and the outrageous outrage be eliminate except in the confines of ones own private habitate.

Moreover, I do believe the explosion in quantity of public outrage has severly lowered the quality of genuine, deserved outrage.

BBC News - Ben Ainslie: Lymington gold post box painter arrested

Ministry of Defence | Defence News | History and Honour | Olympic gold for Larkhill postbox

Royal Mail happy with the criminal damage in Larkhill, but unhappy in Lymmington
The difference is the Lymington one was painted by the Royal Mail so they give a sh*t and the Larkhill one was painted by some sad dropshort in the middle of the night and not the Royal Mail so they don't give a sh*t

Simple really ^~

This made me laugh:

And it follows the painting of a postbox bronze in Doddington, Lincolnshire, to congratulate the British women's hockey team, who beat New Zealand in a third-place play-off.
A Royal Mail spokeswoman told the Guardian: 'We understand the sentiment and congratulate the women's hockey team on their achievement. However, we'd rather people left the painting of postboxes to us. We are liaising with our engineers to ensure that it is repainted red as soon as possible.'

You what? An 'engineer' to paint something red? I can just imagine the 'liaison':

'Is that Dave the painter? (all trade blokes shorten their name) Steven here (managers never shorten their name). Someone has painted a post box gold, can you repaint it red please?'
Dave: 'What a cnut. Be down this afternoon, should take me no longer than 30 mins.'
Steven: 'Thanks.'

Job done. Engineer my arse.

I suppose if he makes a mess once he has painted it the Council will get their Broom shaft technician to come down and clean up.

Ben Ainslie had 1 painted outside the "Pandora Inn" near Restronguet.
This has started a local arguement because he spent more time at Mylor, which is where Restronguet sailing club is.

Funny how nobody seems to complain when Banksy sprays some graffiti where it shouldn't be, rather than criminal damage its treated as part of the national heritage and in some cases they bolt perspex sheets over the top of it to stop anyone spraying over it or stealing it. Don't get me wrong I do actually like Banksys work, but whats the difference between what he does and somebody painting a postbox gold? I bet if Banksy sprayed one of his works on a royal mail postbox they'd have a right chufty on!
