    Went past just now. Doesnít look good. Top brass with to many pips to count walking around with powerful cameras. I doubt the driver made it. Spare a thought.

    A field of disaster Iíd say. It pongs. Itís a shocking state of affairs. My heart bleeds for that business community.

    I was watching one of them boat cruises chunking up the stuf to try and break free. Everyone on the boat covered their faces with clothing. Not my idea of fun.

    Saw a maroon Range Rover, looks like some new model with many exhaust pipes jutting from the rear body kit, yesterday morning on the way to work with the owner standing next to it parked and on the phone at a strange place to want to have phone call with someone.

    I went past after 5pm on the way home with the car still there and the same oke still on the phone.

    Can't say it was hilarious as the OP's post is, just rather strange and worrying as to what did this oke eat the whole day, did he have water wirh him, how many very important meetings did he miss?

    Strange stuff indeed on our roads.
