Damn the council

1 Mins

Spitting blood – do we pay taxes for absolutely no reason or are the councils just so chronically inefficient that they might as well not get up in the mornings? Everyone has known it was going to snow – surely it isn’t rocket science to get the gritters out? Yet here in good old East Anglia, the roads today are absolutely lethal. Amount of snow really is not a problem yet combined with ice and no grit, driving is about as hazardous as it gets. Lorries jack-knifed, cars off road, ambulances going out – all great fun! Am now left with even more exciting prospect of Christmas party tonight as I live out in sticks. Scintillating prospect of paying for it and not being there for second year running – or ending up sleeping frozen on the office floor. Hope anyone who gets injured in this session sues the bloody council!
