Stratford fumes…

No one likes to say ‘I told you so’

Everyone loves the opportunity to say, ‘I told you so’ (especially out loud and with feeling). At the moment citizens of Stratford upon Avon should, if they weren’t so bloody annoyed be smiling and shouting that well-known phrase continually.

Instead, Stratford fumes (see what I did there-‘fumes’ gedit)?

Yep, it’s the TRAFFIC again and the fact that the loonies on the council were told that if they shut off the Warwick Road for the proposed five (yes that’s 5) months there would be trouble. Well needless to say, it’s happening. The road is closed, and heavy vehicles are being badly directed off of the ailing Warwick Road onto Stratford upon Avon’s narrow side streets.

It’s ridiculous because more often than not it is impossible to drive a fat car down Stratford’s narrow streets because they were designed originally and specifically for Will Shakespeare and his horse-drawn carriage. NOT massive trucks and the like.

Anyway, as one might expect cars are being damaged and lorries are getting stuck. And it wouldn’t surprise the Stratfordian that very soon a house will be demolished and its occupants, buried alive.

Meanwhile, back at the big house…

As usual those with the power Winge and Whine about the work on the Warwick Road being necessary whilst missing the point entirely. The fact that the work could have been better thought out and arranged differently seems to have skimmed right over their empty heads. Duh!

Go to your MP…I hear you cry…

Note: The MP for Stratford upon Avon is Nadhim Zahawi. Say no more.

The editor.
