Ban buses, make the poor walk

I’ve had enough of getting stuck behind buses as they pull out without warning, no indication, only to crawl along blocking me off. They have their own frickin’ bus lanes that they nip in and out of seemingly at will with the sole intention of getting in my way, then take up the whole road with their filthy, smoke bellowing engines, and then they drive straight at you when they’re coming the other way.

Environmental CampaignerYet the government and bearded, sandal wearing environmental campaigners (or tossers to the rest of us), like this idiot pictured, say we should all use buses instead of our cars.

Bollocks. I used to use a bus when I was a student. They’re unreliable, slow, smelly, noisy and full of chavs. The drivers seem to delight in seeing you waiting and driving on past you with a sly smile, knowing full well you wanted them to stop. They are not a viable means of transport.

Use more buses? Not bloody likely. I say ban buses, rip up the bus lanes and let the poor walk. Why does someone who is poor and rides on a bus have the right to get somewhere before me?

They’re only going to pick up their giro, they can walk to do that. They don’t need to hold me up on my way to the casino.
