Is it worth a rant?

I was watching Top Gear yesterday and Jeremy Clarkson was having a rant about our ability to clear snow from airport runways. He was driving a vehicle that looked like it could move any amount of snow - and then his rant stopped when the vehicle did the same. However they did manage to clear the runway and the rant continued.

Yes Jeremy you can do anything with political will. The big question is not whether you can do something but whether you want to with the costs involved. I received a reply to a blog yesterday about turning Lancaster Castle into a tourist attraction. There would be a problem with parking. Well yes there would be more of a problem if you had more cars coming into the centre of the city. Do we want Lancaster to have a fabulous tourist attraction or not? Is it worth developing Lancaster? I did reply that I wrote a blog about solving the parking problem a while ago. It can be done and it doesn't have to cost a lot.

As for keeping the runways clear, the question is just the same as keeping our roads clear. We gave up this idea a long time ago. It's just not worth the rant Jeremy.

Change the world


  1. I know my friend from the USA will want to visit the whole castle next time she visits the UK.

  2. It is a pity we don't appreciate our history the way the Americans appreciate it.
