A Is For Anarchy
I was going to show you a photo of local boxing champion Carl Froch today, but there was another demonstration in the square today. This time it was local shopkeepers who where up in arms against the council, and their rather draconian plan to rid all the streets of 'A' boards. I bet you all think that the population of Nottingham is always demonstrating against something. It's just that there tends to be more these days, and obviously I try to report them all. I don't think we'll ever beat the French farmers though!
As you can see from my photo, these 'A' boards are a form of advertising for small shops who may not otherwise be noticed by the public. But the council want to get rid of them as they say they are a hindrance to both blind people and roadsweepers, and they help to make the streets look untidy. I don't know if there has been any studies done, but I doubt that there has been very few accidents.
Do you have such things where you live?
