Just heard a trailer on Radio 2 for listeners to vote for the vehicle
they would most like off the road in this congested age:- "bicycles,
caravans, 4x4s".

I can feel blood boiling already...

No doubt Mr Smug Selfish ******* will be interviewed spouting the
usual line .... they don't pay to be on the road like wot I dus.
Bloody nuisances .... they wobble all over the road and impede me as
its difficult to change down a gear when yer on yer mobile phone and
driving with one hand or applying your makeup as that idiot woman was
filmed doing in North Wales last year.
Don't you realise that I pay loads of tax and that you pay none. You
park those bloody bikes anywhere whilst I have to queue all day to
find a parking space. You don't even have the decency to have
coronorary heart disease like wot I got and the chances are you don't
even smoke either. etc. etc.

Why does he talk in that stupid shouty voice? He can turn any subject
into a farce and can get me to turn off my radio even faster than
hearing the first note of Sailing By.

He's trying out for the Cillit Bang commercials.. Wants to usurp Barry
wotsisname.

He has competition though, as the two blokes fronting Masterchef Goes
Downmarket, sorry, Masterchef Goes Large, seem to have the same speech
impediment, that of being unable to speak in a voice with a volume of less
than 105db, especially that Greg wotsisname that has a fetish on vegetables.

I used to know Mr. Vine to speak to. His former wife was in the same
choir as I. Perhaps she was a calming influence? I know she used to
have to OK his clothes when he as on the telly. Their marriage broke
up when he went to Saff Affrika to be Southern Africa correspondent at
a particularly trying time. There's only so much living under siege
behind armed guards a girl can take apparently.

Calling him my bezzy mate is taking it a bit far. He is after all a
Chelsea fan! He started going before the recent glory days but is
still what is called nouveau. He decided that he wasn't seeing enough
of his wife and they bought season tickets at Chelsea.

He said: "I discovered there was no Tube line between my home and
Tottenham, and after asking friends about Arsenal heard a rumour they
played eight men as fullbacks. Millwall were too frightening, while
Crystal Palace always struck me as having a slightly unhelpful name."

Those comments reveal it must have been back in the days of the famous
Arsenal Back Four when "One Nill to the Arsenal" rang out with
monotonous regularity over the North Bank. Oh, and Wednesday were in
The Premiership, or was it still the First Division then? :)

I guess this will be on his lunchtime show whilst I'm at work, and no
doubt Mr Smug Selfish ******* will be one of those highly excitable
callers that the show seems to specialise in. Hopefully I'll be in a
part of the building where I won't be able to hear Mr Excitable.

It might help if he put a bit of inflection into his voice instead of
the monotone he shouts in. For turning off the radio fast though,
nothing beats Russell Brand or Roger Royle, with Dermot O'Dreary and
Elaine Page coming quite close behind! Fortunately I'll have Top Gear
to watch when Roger "patronising git" Royle is on tonight :)

A pointless exercise, rather.

What's the point?

Is it helpful to have silly polls like this?

Why bother?

SEND US YOUR NOMINATIONS


Which vehicle do you want to be voted off the road?

Cars

Why have you nominated this particular vehicle?

Because they kill colour-blind ginger children.

Your Name: curtis interruptus


http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/vine/vehiclevote.shtml#nominations


It's the broadcasting equivelent of those nutjob local newspaper
letters droning on about cyclists on pavements, dog poo or all them
darkies coming over here.

Or media tarts like Kate Hoey who wrote some lycra-nazi drivel for the
Daily Mail a few years ago, or convicted drunk driver Nigel "charisma
vacuum" Havers claiming that cyclists are the main danger on the
roads.

Difficult to know how to respond to unmitigated bum gravy of this
nature although the London Messengers cyclist chap did a good job on
the radio after that convicted clocker with the twisted mouth
(Quentin?) off Top Gear began a cyclist slagfest.

It's weird and a bit depressing that despite the huge increase in
cycling in London the level of debate hasn't moved beyond the same
tired old cliches and hackneyed hate-filled harangues from Hoey and
Havers. Get the alliteration...

Send in a nomination along the lines of "vehicles driven or ridden by
inconsiderate and/or dangerous eejits, of whatever shape or form", to
possibly give someone an opportunity to fire a brain cell.

Good one.

I wrote:

"Why not change the wording of the question to: "What's the hair
colour of the most dangerous road users?"

Equally daft and just as likely to provoke the demonisation and
dehumanising of the usual suspects. Eejits exist on the roads in all
manner of vehicles and it's clearly impossible to single out the worst
behaviour by vehicle. Since speeding is cited by more people as being
anti-social than any other behaviour (British Crime Survey) and
speeders are often middle aged males a demographic breakdown might be
easier but probably no less worthless.

Stop dumbing down, stop doing silly surveys and play some Jane Wiedlin
you muppets."

They've changed the page - now there is only a selection to choose from,
and cars are not one of the choices. Every choice available (except
caravans & 4x4s) seems to have more right to use the roads than cars!

Today's phone poll is a choice of
White van, 4x4, horse, bicycle, motorbike, lorry, caravan, tractors.

Lots of village dwellers and car drivers 'phoning in to object to lorries.
Lorry drivers objecting to amateurs in cars etc. etc.
