    Well I've now been at junction 2 on the M25 for nearly 2 hours and I've travelled all of 1 miles in that time. What is the longest that anybody has been sat in a car doing nothing because of traffic. Here a chemical tanker has overturned and closed the road.

    On line thanks to bluetooth, GPRS and other toys.

    hahaha ever soo true, Dave.

    Untill a couple of CMs of snow comes along and ruins the transport system Island wide. The Island must of come to a standstill for a good 4 hours three weeks back.

    Unfortunately, I was one of those countless people who also had a collision during that minor snow fall.
