Yes, get a car because the roads are never hit by delays and disruption are they?

Why does traffic use this route over M4 / M5 when everyone knows they are going to be held up anyway ?

I should imagine that one of the reasons is that it is about 35 miles shorter.
In these days of major concern about the emissions of cars (ref. the diesel debarcle!) maybe folks think this matters?
Also, if everyone currently using the 303 switched to M4/5 then I would imagine that they would become a car park themselves?

As an aside there was one comment from someone on the Jeremy Vine show yesterday who declared he wanted things to remain as they are as he and his kids enjoyed the slow ride past the monument and that this was of historical value to his children!! wink.gif laugh.gif

Their confusion to the truth is evident, but personally I applaud the peace women for their determination and dedication to their cause.

However, the moment they start causing damage, attacking moving vehicles, placing people lives at risk, even children and babies, they became nothing but thugs.

I dislike the term "peace" women and "peace" camp.
I think it is a misnomer.

There are very few of us who don't want peace, it's just that different people have different ways of trying to keep it.

The notion that nuclear weapons can be uninvented and simply disposed of is unrealistic.

What has kept relative peace in the developed world for so long?
Is it "peace" camps or the threat of the weapons themselves?
Or maybe it is just common sense diplomacy.

"Protest" camp / women is better.

I thought the idea of any forum was to share views on a particular subject ? We now seem to be more interested in a character assassination on the poster as opposed to indulging in a responsible debate . I am not suggesting we are going to see eye to eye on everything but shouldn't we agree to disagree and embrace the argument ? rolleyes.gif

Been fighting that battle on here for years SirW.
Good luck, although I have to admit things have improved on here from that aspect lately.
Perhaps due to the diminished number of contributors? unsure.gif

Good design is all. Now, imagine replacing all the failing slate roofs of (say) strings of Victorian housing and public buildings not with tiles and panels, but with panels alone. I suspect few of us would even notice.

Don't get me wrong. I not against generation from "renewable sources".
I am just pointing out that, in my opinion, there is a price to pay, lesser or greater, in some way for all our energy requirements.

I'm very much in favour of solar, I know that in this poxy climate it's not as effective as it could be but it still a largely unobtrusive means of generating power.

Right! wink.gif

Tidal power is in its infancy, but France has a 240MW plant, Korea a 254MW one; the Swansea project is planned to be 320MW.

And I forgot to mention hydroelectric.

Interesting thanks.
I should imagine hydro- electric has the least environmental impact?

Is the electric car revolution as "eco friendly" as we are lead to believe.
Seems there is always an environmental / human cost no matter what form of energy we decide to use up!
