Only in some countries... In Italy a 55 minute train journey into central Rome is EU2.60 because workers need to get into the city. In the UK it is about £30 because the privatised rail companies can rip off the poor bloody workers who have no choice.Because they're exempt from a lot of taxes and have been for decades, so governments effectively subsidise air travel.
Why did Margaret Thatcher take away our free school milk? I don't remember the Heath government, but I remember our milk being taken away. I cam remember there were sometimes power cuts, which were fun because we could light candles and use the oil lamp.
I've carried a pocket knife for most of my life, perfectly legal as long as its under 3" and doesn't have a locking blade.Blunt kitchen knives. I go to stay with a son from time to time and have an en-suite accommodation and d in l feeds me in the evening. I make my own breakfast and lunch as I am out cycling in the daytime mostly. Making lunch involves cutting thing like fruit etc. but the kitchen knives are always blunt by my standards. When I was an agriculture student I learned the importance of always having a sharp knife and this has carried on the rest of my life. Blunt knives are useless and dangerous. All schoolboys in my day had a pocket knife as a matter of course but nowadays this would give the powers that be hysterics.
I have a couple of Leatherman multitools, really handy things to have. But because of the locking blade, illegal to carry, so they live under the seat of my motorcycles.Smudge I actually have a 6 inch kitchen knife I take with me now. Since this is carried in the bottom of my bag I doubt it would be a problem. I also have a couple of illegal lock knives which I bought when they were still legal. What on earth is one supposed to do with such things. When I go sea fishing or diving I am also highly illegal but again how does one gut fish or open scallops with a tiddly little blade?
