At least the motorists in the photo are driving correctly.

More often than not, I have encountered drivers that wish to turn left already sat in the left hand bus lane near the top of the hill causing problems for the rest of us who also wish to go left but have stayed out of the bus lane.

Ho hum. All good fun

I wish you could stop them swinging round like they are on Gran Tursimo when they get past those lights.
Pedestrians are in danger on that pavement and there is no money for a crash bar, but money for a bus lane!
Typical !I have never been so fed up with councillors and their like and word on the street is that majority of people with common sense agree.

I do take it that people with some common sense did vote last time! However, Lady T W, you do highlight in your regular contributions areas of concern that require attention and open debate.Therefore please put yourself forward as a candidate for Unitary or Parish and see from the inside that it is not always possible to remain as an independant or have the foresight to see the protest groups or problems. That is why like it not an elected body with well informed officers can offer the best solution, alas not always and that is why we have a democracy to help correct. Also 'doing nothing' just to please could cause problems later - who knows? There are often consultations arranged on projects, but with little comment or reply. Do remember not all those interested see the Journal or the internet for information. This is where petitions come into play, but they then do take in a wider public than those who will pay the bill!

Very interesting, one of my relatives did run to be councillor, but narrowly lost.
And upon talking to involved people found that it was just as well he didn't win as to get anything done is nigh on impossible.
So my question is what is the point of councillors or come to that politicians, as everyone knows it is all run by the civil service.
And popularity comes before service to the people.
And don't talk to me about petitions, the recent case of darling Dave telling everyone how they should vote!
Mind you don't get me started on the blair twins (tony and ian)
