Yes, the same four wheel drive cars that have been criticised in the past years when we were going through mild winters.
The same four wheeled drive cars that have been hammered with extra road taxes, because of their gas guzzling qualities, and have been partly blamed for global warming.
If it wasn't for the four wheel drive cars used by emergency services, and help for the aged, many people of all ages would have died because they could not have been reached.
Perhaps the government should be rethinking their green policies, or in other words, their ripoff taxes on these cars, and all the other ways they have conjured up to extort money out of us with the feeble excuses of global warming, because if this is an example of the winters we will suffer in the future we will all have to revert to four wheel drive cars, government ministers too, but then again they will claim it as a necessary expense and con us out of more money.
It is hard to justify all the hullabaloo of global warming during such an extreme spell of weather, and while some may say that this is one of the consequences OF global warming, others might argue that there is no such thing.
Either way, there will be other winters like this when we will need to be reliant on these four wheel drive cars, so instead of moaning about them during the summer months, remember how useful they were, and how many lives they saved, during our harsh winter.
I believe the earth will look out for itself, as it has done throughout its lifetime, without help or hindrance from mankind, with extremes of weather and weather cycles continuing long after mankind has departed from the planet, whether it be through natural occurrences, or mans own folly.
It is their selves our politicians are worried about NOT the planet.
As I have said before, the planet can look after herself, mankind cannot, not when mother nature is the opposition!
