Lightbulb Road Rage

"Road Rage" is a single that was released by the Welsh band Catatonia in 1998.. It reached #5 on the UK Singles Chart. The song features on the Catatonia album International Velvet.. In her book Pure Evil, Maureen Harvey claims that the lyrics of the song referred to the murder of her son Lee Harvey by his girlfriend, Tracie Andrews. Andrews had claimed Lee's death was the result of a road rage attack by a stranger. Maureen Harvey states " . . . at least the group's singer Cerys Matthews had the decency to return my call and explain that she hadn't intended to cause any offence. She tried to convince me that the song showed how Tracie had gone crazy and that it didn't actually do her any favours." The connection is not obvious to the casual listener..The M25 or London Orbital Motorway is a 117-mile (188 km) motorway which almost encircles Greater London, England, in the United Kingdom..Although technically not an entire orbital motorway – a short non-motorway stretch forms the Dartford Crossing (A282) – the M25, at 117 miles (188 km) is Europe's second longest orbital road after the Berliner Ring, which is 122 miles (196 km)...

Kenneth James Noye (born 24 May 1947) is a British criminal who is serving a life sentence for the 1996 murder of Stephen Cameron in a road rage incident. Following an acquittal in 1985 for the murder of a police officer in 1985, Noye was convicted in 1986 of handling stolen goods, and served 8 years in prison..Noye was born in Bexleyheath, Kent, where his father ran a post office and his mother a dog racing track.. His dishonesty began at a young age. At five, his mother caught him taking money from the till in a branch of Woolworths while she had been talking to a shop assistant. A bully at his secondary modern school, he ran a protection racket with his fellow pupils. He left school at 15... For selling stolen bicycles after he had altered their appearance, and other crimes, he spent a year in a Borstal.. A barrister's legal secretary he met at this point would later become his wife..A police informer for many years, Noye had begun a connection with corrupt officers by the time he was arrested for receiving stolen goods in 1977.. He became a Freemason in the late 1970s, becoming a member of the Hammersmith Lodgein London after being proposed for admission by 2 police officers, and rose to become master of the lodge.. A significant proportion of the membership were police officers.. Noye was expelled from the Freemasons in 1989, according to a letter from the Grand Secretary of the United Grand Lodge of Great Britain, published by The Independent newspaper in December 1996..A significant police hunt led to Noye being located in Spain during 1998, with the reported help of the security forces.. Cameron's girlfriend Danielle Cable, who had witnessed the killing, was secretly flown out to positively identify him, which she did on 27 August.. Noye was arrested the following day, and finally lost an appeal against his extradition from Spain se7en months later..Another eyewitness, Alan Decabral, declined protection and was shot dead in his car in Ashford, Kent, on 5 October 2000; police sources were in no doubt that Decabral was killed by a professional hitman... you can't tend to your own planet, you don't deserve to live here..What do I want to do - I want to Donate your organs to science..Searching for ETs in this political environment is a tough Sell...
