The Big Freeze continues ..

leave a comment »

The cold snap continues on and apparently the country is running out of road salt and grit !!

Just watched Environment minster John Gormly on the Six O Clock news explain that the Government hadn’t planned on the cold snap and didn’t order more grit over Christmas. They thought it would be over by now. He did of course during the interview pass the buck over to Dept of Transport. Supplies of Road salt/grit are likely to arrive after the freeze is over.

Surely we should be able to provide road salt/grit for ourselves without having to have the stuff shipped in ? The Governments’  obvious lack of any sort of preparation for the cold snap is typical of their policies in general.  So careful driving is the order of the day.
