I see, rather surprisingly, that the weather forecasts were pretty accurate wrt the snow and ice that had been predicted.
Given the fact that there has been sufficient and well publicised warnings about the snow I assume that Nanny (eg councils, the Highways Agency etc) and "quasi state" bodies (eg Network Rail, BAA, BA, train companies etc) were ready for it, and have responded professionally and efficiently ensuring that our transport system continues to function during the snow.
What's that you say?
Really, the transport system has ground to a halt again?
Surely these bodies were prepared and ready this time?
Funny that isn't it, the state and "quasi state" bodies are always rather good at telling us how to live our lives (eg "don't travel", "check your flight details before leaving home", "no liquids", "check in at least two hours before departure" etc) and are more than happy to rob us blind (eg taxes, train fares etc) in return for providing us with "services" that fail?
Rather a one way "relationship" isn't it?
Looks like I will be using a lot of cat litter over the coming days!
