Sentiment is good but use is cynical

While applauding the sentiment behind the Bexhill and Hastings Lions Clubs run on the new Link Road – ie all donations to charities of choice – I find the use of the so-called Link Road cynical.

Taylor Woodrow and Hochtief, under contract to East Sussex County Council, have offered a ‘chance of a lifetime’ to use this road before it is opened.

Their advertising poster centres on the archeological interest under and around the runners’ feet, only made possible by the building of this great new road.

If the millions of taxpayers’ (our) money had not been wasted on destroying a beautiful valley (one of the last left on the south east coast) then the money couldwell have been used to stop the unfair cuts being made to our over-stretched services.
