The Review: traffic

 The Broadway, Walsall

That’s the Broadway in Walsall in the picture. I used to ride down there on my bike as a kid. Then it was a 40 miles an hour speed limit; now it’s 30 with traffic lights, speed cameras and double mini roundabouts. Nightmare…

I got stuck in traffic on Tuesday in Willenhall, which was taken over by Walsall in the local government reorganisation, years ago. All the traffic had been diverted onto the one road, because they had closed three busy roads for repairs and ‘improvements’. It’s causing traffic chaos. Then yesterday, I got a long awaited NHS appointment; miles away. You can guess where it is. Right?

Anyway, I wrote a few posts this week:

Finance Friday: Red lights are flashing? was yesterday’s post. Red Lights are flashing on the dashboard of the global economy.” says David Cameron. He’ll have to shop at Aldi and Lidl, the same as the ‘orrible lower classes…

Thrifty Thursday: Preparing for Christmas was Thursday’s thrifty post. As usual I checked out Aldi, Poundland and the other cheap places. I did notice that Harrods have a case of scotch for £800,000. I’m sure they’ll find a buyer…

Its nearly Christmas was Wednesday’s post, which will be of interest to local readers. We have the Christmas Lights switch-on next Friday!

Photography: How to take better pictures was Tuesday’s photography post. I think spring is the best time for landscape photography, but you can get some great pictures in autumn too.

Photography: PhotoScape editing was on Tuesday too.  That post was popular. There is a lot you can do with PhotoScape, from book covers to posters.

The Sunday Ramble: risk was popular too. That was the longest post that I have written this year. That post was a little political…

Now for a definition:


1. an important topic or problem for debate or discussion.

2. the action of supplying or distributing an item for use, sale, or official purposes.

One local councillor said this week, “It’s important to address the concerns of people who want to park in the town centre, especially those with disability issues.”

I’m sure the councillors will discuss and debate the problems of disabled people. The disabled people need action not words. Watch out for the politically correct words of the Left, like address and issues.  The words of the Right are aspiring and robust. This is the collective brain-washed thinking George Orwell wrote about in 1984.

That’s all for today. What do you think. Do you have aspirational  issues that need addressing with a robust response?  Please share those thoughts in the comments box. You can also follow me on Twitter.
