    Do they really want us to use public transport?

    Last year the gov't earned over Ł30,000 million (is that Ł30 billion?, not sure) from tax on fuel (73% tax), if everyone boycotted the roads for just one day the gov't would lose over Ł82m.
    This isn't a pop at Labour or anybody else (the tax on fuel hasn't drastically changed since the 70's) just an observation.

    Well, at least you come in, every morning i'm trying to think of a reason to go sick, but then remember i'm on probation for being off sick to many times, and have to go in. Visa-ve, ergo.
