I 'm not sure if this should go under v public sector workers,but to be honest there reporting is so OTT that i think it deserves it's own thread,http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... inter.html
The pictures in this story particually annoyed me,a gritted road with traffic moving.I see the front page runs with the same "broken Britain" implications,
We have had over a foot and a half of snow,major roads are open,the schools are doing their best.One could run a story,as the local news did,on peoples community spirit and resiliance.But that would not fit with the Fails agenda.
I don't even fully understand what the Mail's agenda is here, other than to take a negative angle on just about everything, validating their average reader's opinion that everything was better in the old days - chirpy snowplough drivers tipping their cap to the local kids as they merrily cleared the road to the local school, or something.
A lot of Mail readers' seem unable to accept that no matter how much effort the Highways Agency and local councils' make, the roads cannot flow as they do on a clear summer day. No matter how much gritting and ploughing has been done, you need to slow down and allow for a longer journey - not acceptable in Mailworld. They want the roads ploughed and gritted for them, but hate The Nanny State with a passion. Hmmm.
