Local builder Joe Carter is backing a Brexit, and using his truck to encourage others to do the same.

Joe, who lives in Radlett Road, Colney Street, has been parking his vehicle on the bridge over the M25, in Bricket Wood, to help advertise his push to ‘Get Britain Out’ of the EU.

He told the Herts Advertiser; “The police have phoned me to say they are worried about the weight of the vehicle, but it’s only a small truck!

“I’ve had a good response so far from people - the toots motorists have been giving me has been fantastic.”

Asked why he wanted the UK to leave the European Union, Joe replied that his main concern was immigration, adding, “We want an Australian-style system, targeting those we need living here, and not being available for people who just want to come here for our benefits.”

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.


Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
