You just said that you don't fifferentiate them (ie, that you
believe them to be the same thing).


I didn't. You missed out the word 'have'.


You have made yourself clear at long last (it only took you about six
posts):


A remarkable insight from you considering that I have not changed or
added any words from "six" posts ago.

That's a mighty big tar brush you got there.

Councils in general are notorious for their incompetence and lack of
common sense.

eg; Three times over the last five of years they've altered a local
roundabout here that has cost hundreds of thousands and caused chaos on
the roads, only for them to put it back to what the original layout was.
I could post many more of their cock ups.


You're lucky they actually restored their cock up. Not here they don't.
The justification is that the change made it safer and safety features
can't be removed. Except it isn't safer and yet another attempt has to
be tried to further hinder traffic flow.

Yup, typical council.
