Oh No Minister!

It's reported that Thanet South MP, Stephen Ladyman is looking for a return appearance on BBC's 'Top Gear'. Perhaps he will offer to make an attempt at beating Richard Hammond's land speed record but along the Canterbury Road instead?

I can't wait!

When most deaths of young people in Thanet in the past few years have been as a result of speeding cars, it does seem to me rather pathetic to see the Minister for Transport setting a poor example in this way.

Why not have a real challenge and see how fast they can get round the access roads to Westwood Cross!

Rush hour at Westwood Crush was a doddle this morning; Margate/Saga/Margate in 19 mins and keeping within speed limit. We should ban the school run!

I last autumn 2006 sufferd a sad loss in my life, I decided that my 5.7 litre car was a boys toy that was no longer acceptable in view of global warming. This link takes you to a picture of me preparing to assault the planet, something I am deeply ashamed of. http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/tdc/chevrolet_caprice_classic_.htm Is this sort of thing is about men saying mine is bigger than yours, or is that a phallicy?
It is my contention that doing something mildly dangerous occasionally is very good for a person’s mental health. In these interesting times I am concerned that that both the minister for transport and my MP is as mentally healthy as can be achieved. I myself have decided to get a small sailing boat again, a toy that at my age will probably dangerous enough. It occurred to me that perhaps if Dr. Ladyman wished for some excitement, he could consider this more environmentally friendly form of fun, and that if he sailed from Ramsgate harbour it would have the added advantage of making him more visible to his constituents.

Dr Steve Ladyman has asked me to apologise for my comments above as he feels that they are entirely unfair. So please accept my humble unequivocal and abject apologies Dr Steve Ladyman, I realise now that my comments were entirely unfair.
