Ah yes 2 days ago we british went hrough that annual event known as the Budget, yes that time of year where we find what our so called goverment will be price increasing (again!!) and by how much (TOO MUCH!).

It is that occasion where we are told why certain areas we pay for are being charged higher and where the money is going to!

As usual the poor british motorist gets screwed just because of the size of his car and becuase he won't use public trans port! well some of us have a car that fits the purpose it was bought for! ok if you carry alot of items like i do from time to time you need a bigger vehicle!

And unlike the luck few who can walk to there place of work i have no option but to drive! why? because my workplace is 18 miles from home! and the bus network does not come anywhere near the site, oh i could use a taxi but why should i get screwed £40+ a day!?

As for public transport ( what a joke) we have a rail network that is incapable of running on time, over crowded, way over priced and subject to delays or cancellations!
Oh yes the Bus network - bad time keeping, untidy, noisy, smelly, over priced! And not forgetting the Taxi drivers - over charged & in most cases i wonder how they get around considering most i have come accross have no idea where they are going! understanding & speaking clear english helps too guys!

For all those coming to britain i say welcome to RIP OFF BRITAIN!!

My sister went to London recently. She was surprised at how very expensive it was. She says it is on par with the likes of New York, San Francisco, and Tokyo.

I guess you'll have to come to Texas!
