Banning Women Drivers

In its first sensible policy for years, the Government has announced that it will ban women drivers from our roads. Since just under half of all road traffic accidents are caused by women, this policy is expected to save thousands of lives.

The Minister for Health and Safety, Matt Sojinist, announced that women, most of whom get fat by their early 20s and take 9 months off work for no apparent reason, are a health hazard. "My own Missus gives me an ear bashing if I get home late from a Cabinet meeting", he confessed to our report in a rare moment of male bonding. "In any event, why do women want to drive when it is a proven fact that none of them can reverse park or do a 3 point turn?"

Women will, however, be entitled to operate other road vehicles, such as prams, for which a new road licence will be necessary. Mr. Sojinist added "The Government feels that women operate prams better than men and therefore men won't be given licences to push prams."

Finally, breast-feeding in public will be compulsory, except for fat women, who will receive on the spot fines for whipping their hooters out in front of other people.

Hmm agree with the ban in general, but I think there should be a caveat that they are allowed to drive when ferrying husband/boyfriend to/from events that include alcohol

That is a fair point. Include a caveat which permits them to drive only if 75% of their driving time is spent playing taxi driver to their nearest and dearest. I like it.

Ever thought of running for office Mikh?

Like my wife says - She hasn't had an accident, but seen loads!

However - she's not telling the truth, she managed to drive into the front of our house 'Bloody brake pedal and throttle pedal felt the same!'

Well you understand I do not personally inspect them all, but when did you hear of a woman killing 7 people overtaking like a manic, having previously had a similar accident on the same stretch of road? And running from the scene? and having been convicted for it?

I have not heard of this woman so please tell me about her.

7 people overtaking like a maniac have only themselves to blame.

rosinacarley, you are, of course, right and I'm even more guilty as I suspected that was the event you were refering to.

At the risk of being yet more unpopular, I must confess that a particular aspect of this somewhat irritated me at the time:

Mr Brain was reported by the Mail on Sunday to have received two years' probation after an accident on the same stretch of road seven years ago, when a breathalyser reading showed he was twice over the legal alcohol limit.
Now, unless Mr Brain was known to have been over the limit at the time of his final collision, was that revelation relevant or called for? Is a past misdemeanour an automatic qualification for criminal responsibility for something long afterwards?

Anyway, a very sad loss and waste of lives; and it brings back bitter memories of something similar that I experienced many years ago. I wish the survivors well and all strength to the friends and relatives.

Sorry folks, my initial posting was “Borrowed†from a Spoof site. The story is total Magumba, but taking into consideration the accident in Cotswold’s, I now feel that it’s totally inappropriate.

I don't feel the post wasn't inappropriate to begin with. It was meant in jest. I am a bit out of the loop with UK news stories, but this was a terrible tragedy.
