Bus driver.

They try to make themselves sound more important.

This just in:

England has officially run out of news.

I love how they just randomly insert this tidbit at the end....."Knutsford's MP is Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, who was in Croscombe, near Wells, recently and drank a pint of King George in the George Inn."

Really....a whole pint?  At the George Inn?  Fascinating.

But on being told that the maps would cost him 20p each plus £2.80 postage,

20p for a map doesn't sound unreasonable.  A 'p' is worth about a gram of dirt I think.  £2.80 for postage though?  WTF?  That's nearly $5.  WTF, Britain?

Also, have you guys ever heard of Google Maps?

Well, 20 maps on coated paper weighs a not-inconsiderable amount, so you can't just use the cheapest letter post to send the lot.   And this douche  coach tour boss bus driver probably asked to have them overnighted.

Moron..

I figure it's only a matter of time before the Nanny State tries to limit booze consumption in some sort of Bloombergian health effort; so, a pit of beer might be news eventually.

FTA: A copy of a city centre map is free to download from visitor information site at www.wellssomerset.com/maps/entry1089_wells_city_street_map, but failing that the Journal has offered to step in. Editor Bede MacGowan said, "...we just want to help ensure the people of Cheshire are not denied the chance to visit one of Britain's most beautiful places just for the sake of a few quid. With that in mind, we've had a whip round in the office and we'd be more than happy to cover the £7.80 for the maps and hope to welcome Mr Finnan and his tour party to the city soon."

The legend gives the distances in hundreds of METRES. Big place.
