As much as everyone else in the United Kingdom, I completely love the HM Government* and this I also love our local councils but sometimes I really do wonder if they make choices based on a few illogical choices made while high while dancing around in a room naked while summoning some dark lord dolphin to random decide what they should do … or something like that.
Basically where I live the main road that is actually used here was damaged with tons of pot holes that I feel sorry for anyone that tries to ride a motorcycle on that road.
After the local council decided to spend a few million of pounds to change what is basically two roads (it was a market place) so that there is less free parking place for some really odd reason when there is a lack of free parking in the town to start with. Anyway after this was approved in the local town, they decided to go ahead with the pot hole repairs.
Well this is all great news and the repairs went ahead and I have to say, it did all look lovely and it was really a great repair job. However what this little moan is about is timing. Basically what happened is one of the local gas companies put a request to the council to replace one of the gas lines before the road repairs when ahead and they was approved.
Now I am going to give you a few minutes to think where the gas line repairs was needed and what the council decided to do.
That is right, the gas line repairs was being done just under where the new road repairs was happening. So rather than fix the gas pipes which they was told months in advance they decided to fix the road, dig it back up, let the gas company fix the gas line and then let the road in a rough state.
And I always thought a Tory Council was all about saving money and not wasting it wasting it.
Suppose that dolphin might be high.
