    How good an idea does this sound?, Got it sent through the email last week.

    The British Solution to Save Petrol

    Brown wants us to cut the
    amount of petrol we
    use......
    The best way to stop using
    so much petrol is to
    deport 3 million illegal
    immigrants!
    That would be 3 million
    less people using our
    petrol. The price of
    petrol would come
    Bring our troops home from
    Iraq to guard the
    Channel....
    When they catch an illegal
    immigrant crossing the
    Channel, hand him a
    canteen, rifle and some
    ammo and ship him to
    Iraq ....
    Tell him if he wants to
    come to Britain then he
    must serve a tour in the
    military....
    Give him a soldier's pay
    while he's there and tax
    After his tour, he will be
    allowed to become a
    citizen since he defended
    this country.....
    He will also be registered
    to be taxed and be a legal
    resident..... .
    This option will probably
    deter illegal immigration
    and provide a solution for
    the troops in Iraq and the
    aliens trying to make a
    better life for
    themselves.. .....
    If they refuse to serve,
    ship them to Iraq anyway,
    without the canteen, rifle
    or ammo.....
    Problem solved.....
    >
    If you think this is a
    good solution to both the
    problems, forward it to
    your friends.... .........
    >
    I just did.........

    Good idea!

    I watched a sickening programme on News yesterday that Gurkhas, who have served Queen and country, and paid tax on their wages are not allowed to remain in the UK when they retire. These are guys that risk their lives in all tours of the last 200 odd years, and we are booting them out! In response they are handing back their medals, VC's etc. This made my skin crawl.
    Where as on the other hand, we let extremists rant and rave, and pay THEM to do so.

    3 million illegal immigrants yes, but only a fraction of them would be driving, as they would have no insurance or licence etc. which would be a risk in itself to drive around with the amount of car registration recognition systems in force today.

    Just to annoy a few of you, I used to fill up my S3 full tank for about £62 (In the UK), and I just filled up a few day ago here(Saudi Arabia), a rented Chevrolet Caprice (V6) for £2 full tank. Both cars with 95Octane Now that's £60 saving on a much greater capacity car and I just realisd how much I was paying back in the UK, when I tell people here how much it costs back in the UK they nearly die and I don't blame them I nearly did when I converted the costs back to £. Anyone want some cheap petrol? =)
