You may remember this time last year when dozens of little metal boxes appeared on Sunbury’s roads, collecting traffic data for The Jockey Club.
Well, it’s that time of the year again, it seems, although this year there’s only been one sighting, on the Spelthorne/Richmond border on the A308, Staines Road East.
It was a slow morning on the KKG website yesterday. Only one visitor, who only looked at one page.
The visitor? From Greece.
And the page he or she looked at? Rotten Boroughs, the story from Private Eye about the Spelthorne councillors who have been helping the Surrey Police with their enquiries into the sale of the Bridge Street car park.
It certainly puts things in perspective. At least we aren’t sitting in Greece reading about the goings-on at Spelthorne Borough Council, in order to take our minds off something much worse …
