Makes me so mad!

18 Oct

I read in the Metro newspaper the other day (so it must be true) two stories that just do not give me much hope for the state of the US or the UK, quite frankly.

The first story was around two boys of two and three years old, who drove their toy car down six, count ’em, SIX blocks in a town in America, watched by their neighbours. The boys apparently got stopped by the police when they manged to get onto, and start driving down the highway. Makes me question greatly WHY ON EARTH didn’t the neighbours stop these kids as they were driving down the road in their mini car thing? As some would say “Only in America!”.
Or is it.

Because just a couple of stories down the page was a classic about the leaking House of Commons roof. It’s apparently going to cost £250 million to repair, and all the MPs have to decide is whether they move out of the House of Commons whilst it’s being fixed. They would move to the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre, which is just down the road. To help them towards their decision, someone has come up with the following figures; if they move out, the roof will be fixed in two to three years, if they decide to stay, it will take 25 years to fix, since it can only be done during the summer recess. And guess what? The MPs are going to debate it for three years before they decide. FFS! If they moved out tomorrow, it would be done and dusted in the same time it would have taken them to ‘debate’ it. Maybe I should just go and tell them to move out.

Makes me so mad!

    Perhaps everyone just thought they were further away?

    …and perhaps you should send this to your MP!
