Subject: RE: BS: Weapons of mass weed destruction
Don't get me started on those bloody tractors clogging up the roads. Round here they are mostly contractors who are going for miles, not local farmers just going short distances to get to their fields. They rarely give a damn about the jams they cause. There should be a law that forces them to pull over if there are three or more vehicles stuck behind them. And how many have you seen with no rear lights, no number plates, no signalling. Bales of straw teetering dangerously, the bits flying off getting into your car's air vents. Roads covered in enough shit to plant spuds in. And Iains thinks farmers worry about regs! Then there's that cheap red diesel being used illegally. Nowhere near enough spot-checks done. In thirty years round here I've seen about three, if that. Ah, country ways...

We know to avoid Wednesday mornings round here as that's the day of Holsworthy livestock market. The real cash cow round here is tourism, not farming. Wonder what the tourists think about trailing at 15 mph behind a tractor for miles in a convoy on a stinking hot day...
