Petrol and pasties is all about mind control and social engineering and many fall for it. You deserve the government you get I fear and this one is well rehearsed and good at it. They're laughing in the bars at the houses of corruption ... and the tax payer subsidises their alcohol consumption oh woe...
and here i go ... oh the only main petrol supplier, morrisons, in bridport have employed a traffic controller to direct traffic towards the 'empty' pumps and many of them are chelsea tractors from the surrey dahling i notice.

Ancient Giants is a documentary that follows three young explorers from Dorset deep into the Chilean temperate rain forest in search of some of the world’s oldest and largest trees. The Alerce Tree, also known as the Redwood of the South, is truly an impressive species. This film gives you stunning footage of these trees and the life that is sustained within their canopy, contrasted against the deforestation of these trees and the effects of their destruction.

With the coffee wars heating up in Bridders you won't be able to turn round without getting foam from a skinnylartymockachino on your elbow or suffering a nasty graze from those biscotti (Italian for biscuit (which is French for dried cake)). Costa coffee have now joined the fray while Starbucks have had a setback to their bid to take over a nice family run concern in Bucky Doo Square after planners decided that it was more a trianglyoblong and would therefore have to re-zone it as set aside arable land.

A rare first edition of the Bible has been found in a charity shop in West Street, Bridport. An eagle eyed Clergyman bought the book with the collected works of James Herriot.
The Clergyman who has a penchant for antiquarian books was passing through Bridport on his way to his holiday destination in Devon when he noticed the abundance of charity shops in West Street. The Right Reverend Bruce Stanhope of the Archdiocese of Melling who wishes to remain anonymous decided to park his car in the bus stop outside Snooks and investigate.

On a recent house call in bridport Mr Ray Poole of the Loft antiques in Gundry lane discovered unknown to himself a rare little gem.
Not quite sure what he had found Mr Poole contacted the British rodent and rabbit society chairman Mr Charles D Homberg R.F.F. and was told it was in fact a rare Marshwood Vale Horned Rabbit (Oryctolagus Wurzelus Cornuculus) extinct since the late 18thC.
Mr Homberg said that it is the only known stuffed trophy head but he does have a skull which was found while ditching work was being carried out by council workers in the 1920s near Pilsdon.
