Saying a fond farewell to wretched foreign lorries
As the campaigners either for or against in the imminent referendum continue to peddle their sensationalist propaganda, one sure fact seems to have passed both factions well and truly by.
On the firm assumption that nobody in Europe will wish to trade with the United Kingdom after the Brexiters prevail, won’t there be an enormous drop in the commercial traffic entering this country?
After all, with the threat of tariffs from their respective governments, etc, plus the ongoing satisfaction of kicking the United Kingdom where it, apparently, hurts, we can all say a fond farewell to this wretched trail of lorries.
It will be ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ to Willi Betz and ‘Adieu’ to Norbert Dentressangle – oh, what bliss!
Turning the M20 into a giant car park whenever there is trouble in France will be a thing of the past, so peace can return to those living close to junction 11. It all makes so much sense doesn’t it? I just wonder why the Brexiters haven’t thought of it themselves. Colin Davis, Front Road, Woodchurch
Perhaps most importantly volunteering is about contributing something to the local community. From the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, to the leader of the local Beaver Scout Colony, every one of our volunteers makes a promise to help other people.
This year Scouts are living their promise by making a positive impact in local communities through A Million Hands, a national campaign to support four key issues: improving the lives of those affected by dementia, improving the lives of the disabled, improving the mental wellbeing and resilience of families and ensuring everyone everywhere has access to clean water and sanitation.
It’s about real, meaningful and sustainable action and it’s encouraging a new generation to really think about and support the people around them.
On behalf of Kent, may I say a very heartfelt thank you to our volunteers. And if you feel inspired by what you’ve read, whether you’re an adult or young person, we would welcome you to the Scouting family and support your development too. Dean Harding, Kent County Commissioner
