Sort of know what you mean but this (the French thing) has gone on a bit now.. The government has already done a U turn on the Diesel tax issue that p******d a lot of rural dwellers off and started all this, so that’s a plus for direct action ...but it has now been highjacked by various f wits, from both the left and right wing, or even not politically aligned, just trouble makers..

The sooner it stops the sooner I can stop using tactical routes into town to avoid having to stop at certain roundabouts and pretend to sympathise with the local young farmers (who are never ones to miss a good protest, especially if they have tyres and pallets going spare)...and I can take my Gilly Joan (like it) off the dashboard before it gets bleached white......
