Satire Takes Another Shoeing From Reality…

Ever wonder why council tax goes up and up and up each year…?
Steve Heyman said that six week's work by three different groups of contractors had so far resulted in two poles standing next to each other on both sides of the road, with only one of the four orange flashing globes actually lighting up.
Wow! The council must be pretty ashamed of that dismal episode, eh? Well, not quite:
A spokeswoman said the project was a Fishergate ward committee "Local Improvement Scheme" to replace existing poles with illuminated ones to improve the visibility of the crossing at night.
It's certainly improved the pay packets of all those council contractors, love!
