Don't you know how much Western democracies care about human rights? I mean "the leader of the free world" would never bow to the king of a tyrannical state just because it has some oil.

Oh wait


Well at least no WE sates are doing any business with hardcore dictatorships, right?

Oh wait.

Looks like all posts here of this afternoon are hidden, not deleted. That's the plus point. However, we are supposed to be able to discuss everything here on this thread, regardless what. If censorship applies on this thread as well, people will only take off topic discussions to other dedicated infrastructure threads. Removing comments is also a snub to those who wrote them. I am very unhappy, and will need to seek procedures to change this.

4. If nothing above works, I turns the wipes and screen washer on.
Lol, you're so complicated, I just ignore it altogether.

LOL no sir, here you can talk about almost everything. Survival of your post is 90%. This is the British motorway thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...98341&page=190

I'm just generally very angry with these random post removals. This is a live forum for Christ sake, it's disrespectful.

What happens on UK motorways when a police car is in the area, driving slowly. This is the truth. I see it myself every time. I eventually reluctantly would pass the copper.
