By writing the book in the first person perspective you get an inside look of every detailed thought that runs through Christopher’s mind. The author develops a theme showing how poorly people can treat you just for being “different”. Throughout the book, Christopher endures multiple encounters with disrespectful and harsh people. On Christopher’s journey to his mother’s house, he asks the policemen a simple question, but because he lacks the intelligence that the policemen considers common sense, he receives a very disrespectful answer. “How much does it cost to get a ticket for a train to London?” And he said, “About 30 quid.” And I said, “Is that pounds?” And he said, “Christ alive.” And he laughed.

It ended a strict system of route licensing that had protected public sector operators for 55 years. There were two main reasons for deregulation. These were that the market for local bus services had been declining annually since the mid-1950’s and in order to maintain services, local authorities were obliged to provide ever-increasing subsidies. After deregulation, the only barrier to entry was that all firms required an operator’s licence, largely for safety reasons to ensure minimum quality standards. It was hoped that the deregulation would provide a much needed ‘shot in the arm’ for the local bus industry.
Putting other people in danger while driving is unacceptable especially under the influence of a controlled substance. Older people should frequently have their license checked and taken at an appropriate time. For example, my girlfriend’s grandfather offered to pick us up so we wouldn’t drink and drive. It was dark and late at night and he was having trouble seeing the road. Instead of telling us he was blind he proceeded to guess where the exit was and veered off the high without hesitating and crashed into a divider.

Between Saturday 6th and Thursday 11th of August 2011, thousands of people drew the English government's attention to the fact they felt neglected and overlooked by a society that would blindly pass judgment on them. “Big Brother isn't watching you” is Russel Brand's take on the UK riots of 2011, in which he tries to explain the rioters motives in detail. As Russel Brand would himself point out is that he no longer lives in London and that he has “been transplanted to Los Angeles by a combination of love and money; such good fortune and opportunity, in both cases, you might think disqualify me from commenting on matters in my homeland.” Though despite this statement, Brand qualifies himself by explaining a strong moral connection to his homeland. His attitude toward the UK riots of 2011 is that it is a common problem, one born from neglect rather than the nature of people and that it must be solved with collaboration not by separation. Brand feels that the blame of the UK riots are not necessarily to be placed with the rioters and their mindsets, but rather that it is born from the social neglect that has been predominantly seen in the lower classes of society.
He also informs us how unjust it is that people can survive without working, yet he has to work six days of the week, simply to pay off a few bills. As Larkin says, “That’s out of proportion.” ‘Toads Revisited’ shows us how Larkin’s outlook on work alters, once he ponders resigning. This poem tells the reader how his life without work would be dull, and monotonous. The poem commences with the phrase, “Walking around the park should feel better than work.” At the first opportunity possible, Larkin is portraying the idea of his change in opinion. Subsequently, he then goes on to write about characters sighted in the park during the day; which strengthens our belief that Larkin’s view is contradictory to that in ‘Toads’.
However, when his flight was canceled, he and Tandberg’s CEO, Fredrik Halvorsen, used their merged companies’ equipment to hold a virtual press conference. Other businesses weren’t as lucky, especially those with high-value, highly perishable products such as berries, fresh fish and flowers, and medicines and pharmaceuticals. African farmers, European fresh-produce importers, and flower traders from Kenya to the Netherlands found their businesses threatened by the air traffic shutdown. Even manufacturers were affected. For instance, BMW had to scale back work hours and had even prepared for possibly shutting down production at its Spartanburg, South Carolina, plant because it depended on trans-Atlantic flights to bring transmissions and other components from German factories by air.
