Fucking roadworks! – Thu 1st Mar 07

Roadworks. What the fuck?! Roadworks is a concatenation of two words: Road, and Works. Now, I understand the point of the first word, but doesn’t the second suggest that SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, should be doing some fucking WORK?!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen road workers working. It might be one of those imaginary things like a griffin, a unicorn, god, a successful Evertonian… We get told that for two months, this little bottleneck of a bridge that most people rely on to get to work, will be down to one lane and turn-based traffic lights, because… well the truth is, no one knows. Not the workers, not the council, and certainly not the thousands of people whose working lives are disrupted because some overpaid underworked gibbon of a fuckwit figures out that his team will lose their financial allocation for next year, unless they go dig up a hole in the middle of a busy road for no apparent reason at all.

It wouldn’t be so bad if you drove past (not me of course) and saw them working. I don’t think I’ve seen more than two “workers” working at any one time. I have a theory. I suspect that the average intelligence of the regular “workie” is equivalent to two brain cells…in a goldfish. And if more than three of them actual use their minds at the same time in any given space, the universe implodes. Better safe than sorry eh?

It’s fucking infuriating. They should work at night, (although work anytime would be a start), and get it all done within a week. Two months…for what?! Is there any point complaining to the local council? Nope. Because contrary to popular belief, what people want means jackshit. And you thought we lived in a democracy….soooo naive. A few months back, there was a police-enforced road survery. A FUCKING ROAD SURVERY, that was POLICE-ENFORCED, just so people would stop! What the fuck?! A bunch of sweaty tax-dodgers (read: students) asking people questions on road congestion and “would you like another bridge?” Tell you what, stop pulling people over at 9 in the morning on their way to work, and we wouldn’t need another fucking road/bridge!

This is why the American constitution is one of the best inventions man has ever came up with: a government of the people, by the people, for the people. Unfortunately I live in England, and even so, it doesn’t work, because the people serve the government. There is an elite upper class that will always be in power (only the names change) and you will forever serve them. You will always pay more than you have you. You will always be at their beckon call and submit to their authority, for anything. And if they decide that a civilian survey is more important than you getting to work on time, tough. You might think that’s YOUR decision to make…. pah. What country are you living in?!
