Men At Work

A quick stroll along Victoria Parade confirms that a couple of workmen are indeed excavating huge Tony Robinson sized trenches around the daftly-dualled lamp posts (although it was unclear which one of the pair was our Scotty). So far they've dug holes around 16 sets of posts. No sign of anything being removed, though. Perhaps the idea is for the strengthening wind to blow the old posts down.

In fact, now that a couple of spots of rain are in the air, I notice both fellows have chuffed off in their van.

Unfortunately the expectant crowd of onlookers had dwindled by the time I arrived on the scene, being reduced to just a few middle-aged men sitting in their Rovers half staring at copies of 'The Twenty Minute Manager'.

Does that cover 'how to become a manager in 20 minutes', or 'how to be a manager for 20 minutes'?
I think Andy War-hole covered the latter, but in a more conservative way (say, 15 minutes).
The former is covered by McDonalds.

Or is there another angle , as yet, unconsidered?

Over to everyone else!

Any thoughts on that, BJG?

On reflection, the trenches may be to facilitate water collection around the poles. From this they determine, A) where the electricity is, and B) Magnetic north.
Possibly.. C) Autonomy for Poland at last!

Really though, they probably asked for being s*at upon, by being so crap at everything.
Like everyone, I'm sure they have hidden depths.

You really must learn to control your Horlicks at this time of night, RSR.

The level of intelligent debate among the opinion formers and agenda benders of Thanet is truly remarkable.

We do have a lovely community here. A fine balance of millionaires and all the other lot.
