Peter:Jobs well I would imagine some will be created by the proposed development although Shrewsbury is ideally placed for commuting to the midlands,London and even Europe I believe my comparrison to Chester is realistic.
Me, Chuffy:Commuting to London and Europe?! Are you mad?? London is almost 3 hours away! (And there are no direct trains..)
Peter:You are the one who is mad looking through blinquered vision,firstly London is commutable I know people who do it several times a week from wales so I am sure Shrewsbury gets its share,also prices of accomodation and housing not to mention living quality would make Shrewsbury an atractive proposition for some also the road system in theory is conveniant.
Commuting to Europe what is wrong with that? many European cities are just a short plane ride from Birmingham or Manchester not so much daily but once or twice a week certainly.
At this point I almost died. (Those who don't know where Shrewsbury is, well, it's no where near an airport and really really quite far from London...)
Me, Chuffy:Sorry, you're accusing me of being mad?!
And then suggest commuting for 6 hours a day is fine?
Okay... time I stepped off this insane planet. Frankly anyone who doesn't mind commuting 6 hours a day DOESN'T HAVE A LIFE OR A BRAIN OR BOTH. No one should be spending so much of their short and precious lifetime sitting on a train shuttling back and forth to work.
Seriously, are you being serious?!!
If this is the state of things, that people commute for a quarter of their days, then what has the last millennium of progress been for?!
Live closer to work. Work closer to home. Use technology so that you don't need to physically move about. Why is this so hard to achieve?! If that job in London is so precious, move nearer. If you can't afford to then you can't afford that job - it's paying too little or house prices down south are too expensive (probably both). Either way, the system isn't working for you so don't play the system's game.
Rat race indeed. Giant rats called people, running harder and harder to their graves. I hope these people all die from stress in their 40s.
