Power, speed, thrust … There is no doubt a certain kind of car is sexy. In which case, why don’t you date the car?

Let’s be honest, the owner probably won’t match the ideal ….

Traffic is no respecter of reputation. You can go up to 160 all you want, but it’s not much use if you’re stuck on 0.


Transport – moving people about – is one of the most pressing issues facing our society.

As yet, every attempt to solve this problem has just made the problem worse.

I’ll be honest, I haven’t got an answer to this. Perhaps there isn’t an answer to this. Perhaps, as more and more cars fill the roads, you just have to accept that things ain’t gonna move very quickly.

Perhaps, if we weren’t all in such a rush to get ‘there’ – wherever ‘there’ is – being stuck where you were, wouldn’t be so bad.

“Yes, but if I’m late for work I’ll get the sack”.

In which case you can either: 1) move home so that you are closer to your job; 2) find another job which is closer to your home; 3) leave home earlier; 4) manage it, so that your work day starts later; 5) work from home; or 6) stick two fingers up to the system and beg or busk – and then you can choose your own hours …
