Just saw this headline on Ealing Today. Chaos? What a disaster? See article here.
The headline is:
Pothole Problems Cause Road Chaos
The sub headline is:
Northfield Avenue is ‘collapsing’ say locals
That all sounds very bad. The report is written by a â€œlocal residentâ€. No doubt. But Ealing Today fails to identify Toran Shaw as one of the LibDem candidates for Northfield ward in the forthcoming local elections in May. [Note: ET have since updated the story to identify Toran as a candidate.] Maybe disaster is not imminent as feared?
His Twitter bio(graphy) says:
Writer. Researcher. Liberal Democrat candidate for Northfields ward. Brentford FC & Formula 1 fan. Libertarian. Linguist. Social media geek. Pagan.
Toran doesnâ€™t mention that the pothole crews were out in Graham Avenue (off Northfield Avenue) and adjacent roads all this week.
He doesnâ€™t mention that the current administration has spent more on new roads in the last four years than Labour spent in 12.
He doesnâ€™t mention that 18 Northfield ward roads have been resurfaced this year alone.
Funny that. Chaos indeed.
If there is a problem in your road call 020 8825 6000. It will get fixed quickly as Toran has found.
