Well.. I hope that lamp post is going to get parking ticket! It's got a serial number on it so there's no reason for the local leccy board not to pay it  Wink

They were probably having a high level council meeting regarding whether or not to relocate the lamp post Crazy

Re: you cant park er, park it else where

Just shows the level of intelligence around in these days of higher education.
When I was working for Cambridge City Council (in the 1950's) I was rewriting road name plates. The particular one I was doing was originally spelt wrongly. A local resident tols me it was wrong as she knew the Professor it was named after. I stopped doing it and raised a query with the foreman, he enquired about it and she was right. I therefore finished the job with the correct spelling, but not before the local rag published the incomplete name in a photo.
