Drawing the line somewhere

Dear Spurtle

Upon reading some big yellow notices today, I was momentarily gratified to learn that Edinburgh Council's Roads Department was planning to do some work in Montgomery Street.

Sadly not to actually fix the potholes that are rapidly consuming the carriageway, but to repaint white lines in connection with their no doubt highly profitable parking scheme.

It's always interesting to learn our Council's priorities.
