    You can borrow my cat if you like...not only is she doing my head in and meowing whilst I'm on the phone to customers, but she's also a ninja when it comes to catching rodents and other small animals/birds.

    Here's a mole she brought in for me last week. Gimme a call if you want to hire her!

    Well that is an excellent offer.. However my dog probably wouldn't like the cat, it would end up like one of those Tom and Jerry cartoon sketches where the dog gets involved aswell and then general mayhem would ensue...!

    Thanks for the offer though!

    I saw another side-effect of the lane closure yesterday. Someone pulled into it, parked up and was talking on their mobile phone.

    True, but a car kit or headset is cheap these days.

    Any public organisation you make an FoI request to is allowed up to 20 working days to respond.

    On the eve of the eve of 20 real days, one can't help but wonder
    a) what the answer will be, and
    b) how many days there might be between real days and working ones.

    I, for one, await with (a)bated breath.

    Henryscat is not agreeing with 95% of the post because he works for the council.

    If they stopped spending silly money of pointless tasks then maybe they could reduce our tax bill rather than "having" to use the money

    That's a little unfair. The only disagreement henryscat has had, in this thread at least, is with people automatically assuming that there was no reasoning behind this change - which seems fair enough.

    Whether people will agree on the reasoning once it is disclosed is another matter.

    The man makes a good point... come to think of it, apart from the W.A.R. has the council / highways ever consulted anyone on anything?

    Lights at Asda roundabout anyone?
