Alfie: Stop Press – Government fixes something!

10 Jun

Earlier today the UK government declared the counties of Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire to be an official drought area, due to a distinct lack of precipitation since about February!

And since that announcement it has (in Cambridgeshire, where I am, anyway) absolutely PISSED it down!

Any ideas as to how other problems afflicting this country could be solved in a similar way?

    Yesterday, I had all four radio speakers (front and rear – including tweeters in the rear pair) changed in my chariot.

    They couldn’t get the rears to fit – and so created BAFFLES by carving out two pieces of wood – then covering them with a material that was pretty close to that on my rear parcel shelf.

    The whole operation took about TWO HOURS (they had to practically DISASSEMBLE Mitzi to do it).

    Yet despite the extra work, creating those baffles – they STILL charged ZIP for the labour – content with the profit on the speakers.

    The whole thing cost me just 2,500 Baht (including a 200 Baht TIP I gave them for the baffles – impressed the hell out of me that).

    But even allowing for the Pound’s 33% DROP against the Baht – that was still only FIFTY QUID, all in!

    There are more reasons than just the sun and best women on the planet – for escaping to this country.

    Oh – and fags here only cost 60p a pack, too!
