I am really glad I don't pay a licence fee to enable the socialist propaganda machine to make money selling Eastenders to the rest of the world.
My BBC?... not since 1997. The BBC is funded by an unfair illegal tax and is supposed to provide "public service" broadcasts. It used to do that up until a few years ago until it decided it would be a good idea to go head-to-head with ITV and make programmes with B list celebrities making idiots of themselves learning to cook/dance etc.
I watch what I feel is worth my time and effort on the iPlayer and I don't contribute a penny towards it. No such thing as a free lunch?
Do you have gas and mains sewer out in the sticks?
Not everyone does. Some people have to pay for bottled gas and a lorry to take their shit away. That is their choice. Live in the countryside: don't expect all the amenities. Broadband is not as essential as gas or sewers.
If you a really going to change the way you vote over this you shouldn't be allowed a vote, but I suspect you are red through and through anyway.
I wan't cheap and nasty, could give a toss about the environment. China doesn't. What about that boat they've sunk off the coast of Japan - think of the dolphins...
Paris, because... see the first sentance.
PS I'm green because I have a 10 year old PC running Debian

I work in road safety and it not speed but inappropriate speed that is a problem.
Bad driving is the problem. No argument. Someone, who thinks they are a safe driver because they travel everywhere at 40mph is more likely to cause more accidents than someone breaking the speed limit. We need more police on the roads and we need to throw the book at drivers for dangerous driving or when they are the cause of an accident. Cameras do not make safe drivers. If the motoring public saw a marked police car everyday along their route they would pay more attention. Once you know where a camera is located you brake and speed up, just like speed humps. Not paying any attention to anything else.
For example which catches more mobile phone users? a speed camera or a police officer?
My company is using xp with ie6 and notes 6.5. We have 50000+ employees so I can't see it changing anything until a major lock-in kicks in and we have no choice.
Personally I dropped XP for w2000 because of genuine advantage/antivirus bloat/forced upgrades to media player etc... oh and the fact I couldn't re-install it without ringing microsoft to ask if it was ok with them to use my software...
Windows 2000, just for running Money 2004 - all running in VirtualBox on ubuntu of course.
Tux cos there's no freetard icon
