Well let's hope the silly sods plant some more Tom. It would be disastrous if this hill was to collapse
Tom Wilson: I don't think they've figured out what to do about it yet, Chris - in spite of being told by many what they should do.

Tom Wilson: Since politicians are always amateurs at what they attempt to manage, this is not surprising smile

Oh dear, there is always a downside to the best of intentions.
Tom Wilson: Apparently they were warned what would happen, but chose to ignore expert advice.

Tom Wilson: They're politicians, Ray - what do you mean, "thinking"? smile
I often wonder if councils ever have any common sense between their ears.
Tom Wilson: None whatsoever, Brian.
Didn't think that through did they...
Tom Wilson: Politicians and thinking don't go well together! As we know, to our costs, from Brexit!
typically stupid political decision...
Tom Wilson: As you say, Larry - typical!
Surely someone should have recognized the importance of the trees and their roots.
