    Just had some contractors repairing the footpath opposite our house where some roots / weeds have broke through 20190731_090358.jpg

    They just yanked out the old weed, dropped some cold tar on the hole and stamped it down with their foot, less than 30 seconds of a job.

    I asked them why they haven`t repaired the other one as well ?

    It isn`t marked pal and it`s more than my jobsworth to do it without permission ............................ was the answer.

    This country is a fekking joke !!!!!!!!!!

    Probably left the root in too, it will be bursting through in next to no time.
    The best thing about motorhoming? It's harder for relatives to visit a moving target.

    I`ve formally complained ( with photographs ) to Lancashire County Council, we`ll see.

    It`s a fekking joke Ral, took them all of 30 seconds to do it they then sat there in their pick up, engine running ( probably for the air con ) for 45 minutes.

    One looked fast asleep and the other one was on his phone and having a smoke.

    Similar thing happened here. Four guys from the council came to look at our flooded road [YET AGAIN!!!], two stayed in the cab [well it was raining],
    one looked up and down the road, the fourth looked for a grid, did nothing apart from stare at it for 30 seconds, all got back in the cab, then fecked off.
    This has been going on for the last 20 years, despite some of the cottages getting flooded out. Utter shambles.

    'Flob a Lob up Weed', was the saying, If I remember hearing it correctly, but it was in black and white, so I might have heard it wrongly.
