Miles and Miles

Would anyone care to explain!

On the road through the infamous bridge leading to Craigantlet, Phoenix gas is doing some pipe laying. Disruption is set to continue until August, this on top of the recent disruption due to a fool and his lorry trying to achieve the impossible.

My question is this! Why with miles upon miles of open countryside on either side of the road is it necessary to lay the pipe down the road itself.

if memory serves me correctly, many years ago, a certain telecoms company also travelled the same route due to unreasonable demands by farmers. I hope this in not the case here. RHI and all that!

Dandelion! Bangor’s growth industry

Weed farm for Bangor

Bangor’s dandelion factory.

Sadly through inaction by our local MLA’s this years dandelion crop is set to be the best yet.
Notable by their absence is photos of local politicians pointing at the weeds in an effort to gain some crumb of publicity. They have tried that in previous years but a more knowledgable electorate will not fall for that one again.
Most of us will have noted the dandelions have gone to seed meaning that the halo of wind drifting articles of propagation will be heading to someone’s garden shortly.
Not to be fazed the local politicians will be collecting their salary for doing what they usually do, precisely nothing.
