100 Holes In Lancaster Gardens, Birchingtonshire

Holy holes! Here's one for Kent Highways! Following an alert from the excellent FixMyStreet website, where ordinary, council tax paying mugs like you and me can report problems to our local and county councils, I see a Mr Gavin Coles has just grumbled about well over 100 'repaired' pot holes in Lancaster Gardens on the seedy north side of the island. Mr Holes continues:

The council is constantly coming back to refill these 'repairs'. It is about time that they did the decent thing by skimming and resurfacing the entire street. Either that or they should learn how to properly repair a pothole.

Too right Mr Moles! They've probably used enough tarmac to fill the Albert Hall by now!

Oh! So that is where the blogger mole has been hiding - thanks for digging (gettit?) out the truth.

How about doing something with Beacon Road in Broadstairs that's more potholes and patches than road? All that happens is a bit of tarmac gets chucked in the direction of a hole then tamped down. the end result? Pothole reappears soon due to the volume of traffic.

What sized moles do those people have? TDC should be grateful for smaller mercies.

I will never forget seeing a council lory pull up chap jump out chuck a shovel full of tarmac in a hole and get the driver to reverse twice over the hole chap jump back in lorry drive off . Less than week later hole reapears. I wonder what sort of job satisfaction they got out of that ?

ECR

multi million pound protection by Kent Police and someone still switched the power turbine off

Please remain assured that the security of the power supply and emergency power supply infrastructure is safe in Kent Police hands.

Tee hee and QED .... Elias Switchmole was there

Pity they can't bury some birchington tdc councillors and others in the hole - would make life quieter for the rest of us!
