Environmentally policing ourselves
It appears that one does not have to look far for dangerous situations in and around Newcastle under Lyme.
For example, the dangerous rubble in between two busy arteries in and out of Newcastle (Liverpool Road) has been there for months if not years (see image 1). Has a traffic incident to occur before anyone takes any notice?
Then we have the bus stop 'Guillotine' on Knutton Lane Roundabout. Talking of dangerous implements; this massive shard of glass would not appear out of place in France in 1789 (see image 2).
Last but not least, the loose and broken tiles littering the doorway of the derelict former nightclub Zanzibar on Brunswick Street are a liability (see image 3).

All this correlational evidence begs the question: can we effectively environmentally police our communities ourselves? It would certainly save a few bob wouldn't it?
Therefore do you think there needs to be a new radical directive drawn up featuring cuts in the plenteous salaries of the top earners who supposedly lord over such matters?
Newcastle Borough Council and Staffordshire County Council have been respectively notified regarding the above concerns.
