Anyway, it takes 2 people to chop them and chuck the bits into a barrow. Hard hats each for safety, but no pads for using the chanisaw! Perhaps they're worried one of them migh lob the offcuts a bit high?
Its not a mad world its a sad world.

Better still just save all your money up and go and live in another country.

Very true.

Never mind the NHS is great - ONLY costs us £100 billion a year - that is the same as the GDP of Israel, Ireland or Egypt!!!
