Happy with things as they are

We read of a £38 million schools move and new sports centre (KWN last week). Actually most folks are happy with our present schools and the sports centre of which a considerable amount of ratepayers’ money has been spent, including the Abbey Fields swimming pool of which I use frequently.

We are also fed spiel on “cuts” as “we have a limited budget”. One of the cuts is to cut out street lights at midnight. I recently had to brake hard at Mill End Bridge at 12.45am because of a pedestrian in dark anorak and jeans meandering in the middle of the road.

The old adage rings true here: “Treat folks like mushrooms. Keep them in the dark and feed them bulls**t.”
