Hi all. Bloody posh here isn't it? Look at all this space to scribble in and in glorious technicolour as well. Anyhow, to business: Have you seen the latest master disaster from our brain-dead, clueless band of gobshites in the Tower Of Babble? A£cock and his band of grit stirrers bought 30 mini-gritters for residents to use on local roads paths etc. when the snow came. Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention, they were for residents of Saddleworth only. Guess what. The snow came and then some. Did these wonder machines clear the highways and byways of our beloved Sadd? Did they fuck!! These useless pieces of unfit for purpose crap cost £200 each. I repeat £200 each. That's £6,000 of OUR money that WE can't afford. Grit wouldn't go through the holes, the wheels wouldn't turn in the snow and ice. Never mind they'll probably make nice plant pot holders come summer. Better still fill them with fertiliser and see if they are any use in the garden. Did nobody warn about these shortcomings? You bet your sweet bippy somebody did. Me! In March last year. I don't like to say I told you so, BUT, I told you so.
£200 each! They seen ya comin' Go to any good garden centre. Can you imagine trying to push one of these skateboard wheeled dinky toys through six inches of snow?

At whose door can we lay the blame for this latest fiasco? Why, none other than the Denshaw Dimwit, Counc. Alan Roughley. He said, the gritters were 'the best option available.' Good piece of judgement Ruffers! Think that's a barmpot speaking? How about this, “The company we bought them from have a range of products, all named after mountain peaks 'Everest' and 'Mont Blanc' to name but two, which hardly suggests they are primarily designed for spreading fertiliser." Oh, so he bought them, with OUR money because he likes the names of mountains? Does he think they would sell many if they gave them names such as, 'Spred-Shit', 'Bulldust Broadcaster' or 'Turd Tosser'?
He has now discovered that, “They are not designed to cope with eight inches of snow or the recent extreme low temperatures.” If he really thought they were then we should be very worried about him. If ever he leaves the village, they'll have trouble finding a replacement idiot. Roughley, You and your Saddleworth whingers owe us £6,000. Why not drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org Let him know how happy you are with his performance.
It's been great talking to you on cousin BB's blog. We must do this again sometime. Ta Ta for now Ruffyed.
