My spies report with stunning news: the Tarmac Fairy has got a bit ahead of herself
She’s only gone and tarmacked the ford.
This has incited some local discussion on the advisability of putting tarmac on a piece of road that is, by design, underwater for most of the year. There’s a reason most fords are made of concrete.
Could it be that, like everyone else in the country, the coonsil have been so beguiled by the heatwave that they have forgotten that it will eventually end?
Or do they know something we don’t?
