Yesterday's Standard carried some trenchant criticism of roadworks courtesy of Thames Water in and around Hammersmith & Fulham. Read it here.
Particularly irate was Top Gear presenter James May but I think we all know what it means to be stuck in a bus inching forward around roadworks that have noone apparently working on them. The intelligence of these people is perhaps illustrated by one of my favourite pictures of life in the Bush - this roadmarking was made by one of our do-nothing road diggers. It said it all for me on so many levels.
