    Had a council worker on a little tractor coming up my close spraying all the footpaths with weedkiller ,The council give off the impression that they want to help the environment, but in reality the opposite seems to be the case . Did not manage to speak to the operator, but he is just an...

    Early stages

    I'm sure he will attempt to rejoin under a pseudonym , but due to his spelling errors ,or his writing flair it will be noticed by the majority of people . I must say 5 odd pages of thread not bad going for a beginner ,his reaction scores impressive though John.
