How else would they cope with all the snowdrifts on the Common.
Oops forgot, First snowflake all schools are closed due to

Not nearly enough...
Why you should require a vehicle as big as a battle-tank to transport one child the size of an amoeba for a few hundred yards is beyond me. There are several roads around here which are completely impassable for two hours every day while these "ladies" try to maneuver their ego-mobiles around each other. Ever seen a 21-point turn? I had to sit and watch one not long ago. Crazy.

The attached link was sent to me by an aspiring BMW owner who currently drives a Ford...  %)   (No names, no pack-drill.)

There is no need for winter tyres in the UK
It's all a marketing ploy

'There is no need for winter tyres in the UK'

Not down here in the soft South but the situation is a bit different in the Scottish mountains and probably the Pennines as well. And we don't have the option of lassooing a convenient passing reindeer to pull us out of the ditch. Grey squirrels just don't cut it.
