Bad signs

Click to follow

"Un-clutter our streets" is a cry that will resonate with all those who have ever tripped over a granite football strategically placed at the edge of the town square, or woken up to discover their high street paved in five varieties of cobble. Bill Bryson and his campaigning partners are right. There is too much "street furniture" around these days, and it is spoiling our towns. Students, who have always done such a fine job in removing superfluous road signs and traffic cones, are losing this battle. They need help. So next time you see the council erecting yet another pointless no-entry notice, why not give them a sign of your disapproval?
