I don’t think HE pays the fine for using the Range Rover Ken (sorry … Shirley) I dare say it goes against his expenses that the London residents pay for !! So does he give a flying f**k … what do you think ??!!

I’d agree with what you say about Essex and in fact all the Home Counties. A lot of my family are from the Welling and Bexley areas in Kent .. some are just outside the zone some aren’t ….

Living in the sticks definitely has its advantages

"Motorists with older, environmentally friendly cars which are not aged enough to be deemed as classics are being forced from the road by the impending Ulez expansion, while gas guzzlers owned by millionaires are being welcomed to London.
Despite pumping out less than one third of the C02 than the most polluting new cars on sale, drivers of older cars face having to pay £12.50, while watching owners of the latest models by Rolls Royce, Ferrari and Mercedes continue their unimpeded access to the city.
Under the Ulez scheme, which has been described by critics as 'Sadiq Khan's vanity cash grabbing plan', motorists driving petrol cars which do not at least meet the Euro IV standard face having to pay the controversial charge. For diesel owners, they must have the latest Euro VI engines or hand over cash each day they cross into the soon-to-be expanded zone."

You'd need to pay me £12.50 to enter London.

It was great in the eighties and now it's a dump.

Should be "YOU'RE A WANKER" ...
The forerunner of the Mini .. the A35 .. lots of similarities except rear wheel drive. Mine engine contains a lot of Mini parts now and some Metro brake parts!

"Maybe it's because I am an ex Londoner now that I am glad i left several years ago>"
To the tune "Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner."
Last weekend I took part in the London to Brighton Mini Run. As I left the M25 and got onto the A22 on the way to the startI hit the BIGGEST pothole ever. Luckily no lasting damage but the depth and severity of all of then them from London to Brighton and back was horrenrdous (motorway, A roads etc). Rally special stages are smoother now. :lol:
