Monday September 6th and British kids return to school. Which means... the roads are jam-packed with overweight lumps being chauffeur-driven to school in Mummy's Volvo. The last six weeks have been bliss on the roads. Now it's back to normal, with thousands of dull parents who should know better ferrying their offspring to and from the classroom. Why don't these kids WALK? What's so hard about walking? When I was a kid I walked four miles every day to and from school. If these kids don't live within walking distance, why don't they catch a bus?
