unplanned demolition derby on a bridge. Drew should love this.

100 car pile up, 200 injured this morning.

Reminds me of an olde song.

A foggy day in London town. 

Tons of photos and video. Take a look at this mess.  And they were stranded all day.

I guess cell phones really prove their worth in these situations as would tablets and Kindle.

Yikes, 30 degrees c.  I think (?) that’s about 90 degrees in real temp. terms. I HATE centigrade. 30 tells me beans but hey, 90? Now that I can relate to.

Local Conservative MP reveals he had concerns about design of bridge’s lighting and will talk to the authorities

Police say it’s ‘truly miraculous’ that no one was killed in today’s pile-up, which saw 33 people taken to hospital
Lives probably saved after lorry driver uses truck to block bridge entrance and stop more cars piling into crash

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
