Respect "None"

Ken Livingstone DOB 17/06/1945 - never passed his driving test -never driven a car, maybe never wanted to. In my world, that alone makes Ken a reject & weirdo. What kind of teens did he have, attending meetings of the communist party "Trotskyite", distributing leaflets, extolling the USSR and the dream of a socialist Utopia in Britain.
Previous Occupation: Animal Technician

Why do I feel this way ?

I passed my test at 18, in 1967 - The liberation, the freedom driving bestowed on me was a wonderful thing. I lived on the Isle of dogs, working class - the small row of seven terraced houses went from one car in 1956 to every house had at least one car by 1968. The young men of the street worked hard, and bought cars, bought better cars, and bigger wheels. Days at the coast, steamy nights in the back seat. The car has always been an integral part of my life. I still drive to the coast "Bournemouth" on summer weekends. though not had a steamy night in the back seat since 2000. Little Reading, a view point near Harrow, highly recommended, vehicle Rover 600SLi , definitely an improvement over the Anglia.

................Freak Show...............

I wonder where Ken went for his teenage "petting" I wonder how he made it to the coast. He didn't have the luxury of a 105E (Ford Anglia), and probably didn't have a girl friend to fondle in the back seat. Shame really, to dull to drive, let alone pass his test, to weird to get a girl. So he turned his bitterness to politics, the car, and you, the car driver.
A life long hate, for what he could never have. Here we are, 2004 and a f**ing freak show is now running this great city. He had no choice really, other than to become mayor. It is the only way he can afford to travel every where in a taxi, the only way he would ever get a girl friend.

..............Plan "B"...................
Your editor has seriously thought about topping Ken , but is he worth going to jail for, err! what 8 years, is that really all you get now for "Life". Well maybe if this website doesn't satisfy my anger at the current injustice of the war on car owners, then maybe plan "B" it is. Methods to ed@tba

 

BusRus - OK! I admit, for the first time for many years, I used a bus the other day - Cars in for an MOT "Gulp" . The bus was one of the new concertina types, modern, clean, and remarkably quick. As we glided by the long line of cars and vans squeezed into the outside lane. A smug smile crossed my face. I also noted the other two rather bedraggled looking passengers appeared blissfully unaware of this new found privilege bestowed upon them.

As a temporary Bus passenger I have to agree this AntiCar system does work for the privaliged few, the off peak passengers.

No! I am not going to abandon my car for the bus, as my return journey was a nightmare. It had fallen into the school run. The bus was full (This time a double Decker) of loud, aggressive "Children" some of them well over 6 feet tall. They swore and cursed, they stared at me, their inner rat instinct sensing an outsider. I am well built, and 6 feet tall, and I have been described as "Look like a thug", But I felt intimidated by the staring, sniggering, foul lanqage and nasty remarks. The Bus windows where covered in scratched on graphity, the seats messy and torn. The bad language and general agressive demeanor of this " Child" rabble is apparently quite usual for the School Bus run. Experienced Bus users avoid this time of travel if possible. (Lewisham)

Never again! - I will walk next time I don't have the use of a car, my cocoon, my CD's, my own clean air. As a foot note, I also caught a cold, I have no proof it was the bus journey. A coincidence that the first cold this year, is the day after the one and only Bus ride.

Bus lane extortion - £100! I put two wheels in the bus lane, to avoid an accident = £100 Fine- "Never" Appeal, all the way to Strasbourg. It's a wake up call, to the injustices, and legal extortion that are being perpetrated against the law abiding motorist. In the eyes of Livingstone & his cohorts of left wing nerds, weasels and time servers, you are scum, stupid, money machines. Fight back now. >HOW? - clamping winner

Extortion Charging 6 Months On - Impressive cowering of the motorist in traffic and congestion after the first six months of operation, apathy triumphs. Don't you think its about time, you, the motorists started fighting back against this faceless extortion machine, that has insinuated itself into your lives...I do! More

The clamping case of Vine v Waltham Forest London Borough Council
One interesting question is this. The court clearly made the right of the clamping company to clamp a vehicle defendant on the implied consent of the motorists who parks being aware of the notice. What would happen if the motorist places a sticker on the windscreen, or possibly the wheels themselves, stating, in the clearest of terms, that they do not consent to any clamps being placed on the vehicle? What if that consent could not be implied? The court found that the clamping required consent. That consent was inferred, and no more, from a notice. An explicit denial of that consent might lead to interesting court cases. More

The Farty always pays up - by farty, I mean you - yes you. The good honest citizen, the Tax payer, car owner, victim. You register your car, pay the insurance, tax, servicing, running cost, depreciation, £3 duty on a gallon of petrol, etc. etc. Then after pouring all your hard earned cash on your pride and Joy. Along comes the freak show from county hall, the Police, local authority, to heap more misery on you.
SAVE £3000 per year...
Now if you where a scoff law, or a failed asylum seeker, as in the case outlined below. You could save a minimum of £3000 a year, just buy an car at the auction for £250. Buy one with some tax, as you are less likely get stopped by the Police. I have seen cars regularly at Surrey quays auction for that kind of cash. Drive it for 6/12 months, yes! yes!, the bus lane "zoom", speed cameras, Ha! Ha! parking fees "Never" (though beware of the clamp). Don't mind if you get disqualified a couple of times, because you don't have a license to loose, and you have a back up fake passport, so don't pay the fine. When the car is falling apart, speed down the road and run a child over, leave them in the road to die, and get 3 months in prison, private room, TV. Out in 6 weeks, if you behave.(true story).
Is it just me, or are we all going f**ing crazy ? -

The Independent (London, England); 12/28/2002; Waugh, Paul -
London is choked with wheeled traffic, its residents upset at a network of turnpikes and the high fees charged for using them. People look to their Mayor for a solution, but find only "a vain, prating, bragging bufflehead... a coxcomb".

Kiley's wife penalised
12 February 2004
The wife of London's transport commissioner Bob Kiley has fallen victim to the congestion charge, it emerged today.

Rhona Kiley experienced serious problems when she tried to settle a penalty fine for failing to pay the £5 charge.

She had to make about seven calls to the call centre run by Capita, the firm that administers the scheme for Transport for London, headed by Mr Kiley.

Mrs Kiley, who works for business lobby group London First, said the automated phone system did not accept payment. She finally paid the £40 penalty - reduced from £80 for early settlement - by getting through to a call centre operator.

Her difficulties were revealed to councillors by Mr Kiley at a meeting to discuss the charge.
