There may be trouble ahead

David Hembrow tries to impress us by showing how the Dutch are already preparing for the possibility of winter snow.

I’m afraid I can’t understand a word these funny foreigners are saying. But in any case those of us who are blessed to live in the London Borough of Waltham Forest are unlikely to be impressed. Here, the council has long had a policy of locating grit bins alongside cycle stands, and this one on Vernon Road E17 shows how the most progressive cycling council in outer London is already making grit available to cyclists should inclement weather sweep in unexpectedly.

Only kidding! This winter everything will be just as crap as it is every year
