Was it a windy day? I can't see all the fast food litter that we get here adding so much character to the bankrupt town of Northampton. (Tory council showing you don't have to be Labour or LibDem to be useless)

Klondike, that's what winds me up in  our area, in the time and cost it takes  for somebody to go round painting pretty lines round potholes, it would not take much longer to fill the bloody things in.

For years I thought the paint was some sort of healing chemical. Certainly the local council appear to believe that.

Why don't they just fill in the potholes? BTW, we don't have potholes round here - we have elephant traps!

Starmer backs higher taxes on the wealthiest to pay for better public services. He actually means anybody who isn't on benefits.I'm still waiting for a definition from anybody of what the weekly income of a wealthy pensioner is ?.
I used to get a Warm Home Discount from my energy supplier, they still pay it but now it's only to those on Pension Credit or other benefits, it's going to be the same with the over 75 TV licence.

Would you know which country these pictures are from Raven?  I wonder how long the flowers last - it's a great urban revolution type idea.

Thanks Stellamaris😘 I have always enjoyed this forum and it's goodly supply of normal thinking folk.  Widowed early I needed people and found some here.

I reckon one of the pictures is a British double yellow line, and anything planted there will last until the council cleans the gutter, so several years at least. :)

We have an excellent Conservative MP but loads of Labour councillors which we need to get rid of. They believe its best to invest our money in other places rather than Mansfield.
