Spitting In Our Faces...

Severe disruption was caused on various major roads this morning due to a large funeral procession.
Funny. I attended an uncle's funeral just this week, and it didn't cause any disruption to anyone. We'd have all been mortified if it did!

But this isn't just any funeral...
The procession, thought to be for a person in the travelling community, moved along the London-bound track of the A12 before heading along the A130 into Basildon from 11am.
Essex Police warned drivers to expect traffic disruption.
Funny how Essex Police are so hot on traffic disruption at other times and with other drivers, eh?
"Essex Police has made preparations to ensure the procession is facilitated safely and with as minimal disruption to the public as possible."
This afternoon, the spokesman thanked motorists for their patience.
Like they had any choice in the matter...

Last year, a local man overtook a traveller cortege on a dual carriageway and reset his car CD player to loudly play Queen's "Another one bites the dust" continuously as he drove slowly past the procession, with his windows open. For some reason, no one waved back to his.
