My Oh My!
It has been a good long time since I last awarded my internationally renowned and acclaimed "Prats of The Week" Award.
This week it goes to the brain dead members of Navestock Parish Council. As we all know local councils, and their ilk, tend to not to "add value" to their local communities. However, this bunch "take the biscuit" as they clearly are intent on "subtracting value".
The brains trust that occupy the parish council decided that potholes in the road were a "natural" traffic caling measure. Therefore...and here's where the plan goes off the scale of loopyness..why not leave the potholes unrepaired?
A scheme that is a sure fire winner!
With one fatal flaw..
It is bollocks!
1 The council collect taxes from local residents to maintain the basic infrastructure. What is the purpose of the taxes, or indeed the council, if holes in the road etc are not repaired?
2 Potholes are dangerous, to cars, bikes and pedestrians.
3 Cars swerve around potholes, thus posing a greater danger than simply travelling in a straight line at 30mph.
4 The cost of leaving the holes unrepaired, in terms of insurance claims for damaged cars, bikes and broken ankles will far outweigh and alleged savings in repair costs.
All in all Navestock Parish Council are a complete bunch of prats, and well deserving of the my "Prats of The Week" award.
FYI, work has now begun to repair the roads in Navestock. Essex County Council, which has responsibility for the area's roads, not unsurprisingly took the opposite view and have promised to fill in all potholes "as soon as possible".
I assume that the members of Navestock Parish Council will be resigning?
