Bloody Tourists!!!

Because it's the start of the big holiday season this weekend all road haulage will be banned between
now and Monday.

Meaning if I order stuff on Amazon it won't arrive until Tuesday.

Damn.

You can buy Miley Cyrus DVDs and tissues in your local supermarket.

Is this the French's idea of irony? Banning road haulage when half of southern Britain is clogged up due to the issues at Calais?

Are they really bothered about holidaymakers?

The roads really are a nightmare in France at peak holiday times. I recall being stuck in a traffic jam after midnight on the autoroute and that was years ago. Probably worse now.

Click here - or maybe you're referring to being lucky enough to live in an area with very little rain?

That brace might be a good idea...

No, France's idea of irony is taking the p155 out of the Rosbifs for their constant Strikes all through the 70's, and then becoming Europe's biggest perpetrators of them!

You can't moan about tourists! Most of your lot and South East Asia are currently in St Pancras pushing their oversized hard shell suitcases at me!

**** you.



I just spent 9 hours driving to Spain.

9 hours of hell with ****-wits on the road.

Getting fuel or choccy was impossible.

Got to the hotel, some ****-wit has parked badly so my reserved space is unusable.
Guess the country of that badly parked car......

GGgggggNNNNNNnAAARG!!!!!


And it's s****ing it down with rain.

Should have stayed at home.

Too bad about your reserved space. Still, on the bright side, gives you an excuse to do some off road parking?
