During the week, the leader of our Green Party came up with a classic.
In his mind anyway, there is no need for rural people to have so many cars. All we need to do is have just one car for every ten people and we can all share it. Isn’t that an amazingly clever idea?
It took me around two pico-seconds to think of reasons why this is an utterly brainless idea. It is so crazy that it is actually quite funny.
First of all, who owns the car? One in every ten people is going to be lumbered with the cost of buying a car, insuring and taxing it and of course fuelling it. In the meantime everyone else can sit back and relax while enjoying the benefits of free transport. Unless of course the full cost is shared amongst the ten, in which case there will be fierce arguments as to how the burden is shared. Why should Billy pay a full tenth when he only wants a lift once a week, while Jack next door uses the facility every day?
There is also the assumption that everyone wants to catch the same train or bus up to the city each day. Or what happens when Bridie wants to go shopping and wants to be collected two hours later? Whoever owns the car is going to have to do a scheduled taxi service all day every day.
It’s obvious that the brainless twat has never lived in the country and hasn’t a fucking clue what the world is lie outside his tiny suburban brain.
He apologised the following day “for the pain and anguish” that his plan had caused to rural people. Personally I’m glad he said it – it’s one of the funniest of his crazy ideas and I had a right laugh.
What concerns me though is that the moronic cunt is in a position to influence those who make the laws. That is really frightening.
What’s worse is that the tax payer pays him a massive salary for the privilege.
