today i learned – thurs 29th mar 2018

i feel like we’ve had quite a few serious posts recently … like, actual legit news ones πŸ™„

don’t worry, i’m sure we’ll be back to pointless rubbish again soon πŸ™ŒπŸ»

#tdil that the government are going to actually try to fix some potholes 😁 #hallelujah

i know, i know, compared to usual, this is a pretty boring topic … but as an owner of a stance (very low) hard riding car, this is pretty epic news 😏

basically, they’ve added extra funds to the ‘pothole action fund’ that is available to councils … taking the pot to a total of Β£100million πŸ’° (apparently there’s already Β£75million in there … yet we still have awful roads? πŸ€”)

why have they decided to add more funds? well, the ‘asphalt industry alliance’ (next marvel superhero crew anyone? 😏) have published a pretty damning review that states 12% of the uk’s roads are pretty terrible πŸ˜…

they go on to say that the reasons for this are mainly ‘long-term underinvestment’ and ‘ineffective government funding’ … it also hasn’t been helped by the recent cold weather and the ‘beast from the east’ πŸ‘Ή

but yeah, thanks to everyone’s favourite new band of superheroes – ‘the asphalt industry alliance’ – we’ll hopefully have better roads over the next year or so 😁

i mean, it should be easy, shouldn’t it? the report only reckons there’s 24,496 miles of road that need fixing πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ that’s basically ‘nothing’ πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ #awks #mountainofatask

you can probably tell that i’m quite annoyed by the state of the uk’s roads πŸ˜… i mean, i do have good reason … a pothole did recently blow up one of my coilovers and possible cost me hella £££ πŸ™„

anyhew, with that moan out of the way 😏 it’s time for class to end for another day πŸ‘πŸ»

remember, watch out for that falling space station πŸ›° … it’s coming tomozza! πŸ˜…

stay safe peeps 😍 #tdil
