How long are we going to pretend ....

... that snow is so rare in this country that we cannot possibly be expected to cope with it? It happens every year in most parts and most years in every part of the country. And yet each time roads become unpassable, schools are closed, transport breaks down. One good thing: those pesky teenagers who are taking time out of their studies again today to carry posters given to them by the Socialist Worker party members will find life very hard. I suspect fewer will turn up and many will run home to mummy earlier.


  1. Ahhh, Socialist Worker Party-persuaded students......now i understand your earlier invective towards the 'stoods' in a previous post.....please forgive my previous pedantic questions

  2. I was out in the snow for at least 4 hours in mid Sussex through midday, it wasn't deeper than 1-2 inches in most places, nor was visibility particularly bad. There really is no excuse for the train or motorway networks to suffer in the ways indicated by this Daily Mail article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1334410/UK-snow-Commuters-warned-head-home-early.html

  3. Joesoap, I suggest you have a good look at those posters. The SWP type and design are instantly visible to anyone who knows anything at all.
