Winter Wonderland.....perhaps not!
With temperatures literally colder than the South Pole round here, it makes you appreciate the importance of local services. The people who are out gritting around the clock, the councils who open emergency services for stranded motorists and the voluntary services, police and paramedics who work their socks off to hold everything together.
I wonder how the Tory proposals for councils being run like Easy Jet would work. Would we all be being charged and extra £20 for using gritted roads?
...or would it be like Cheshire West & Chester council where the Tory deputy leader gets his private road in the middle of the country gritted and everywhere else is left untreated - rank has its privileges! See the Chester Chronicle 31/12/2009.
