    Would this be the two temporary (yes temporary) bridges that were erected seven years ago? Much discussion was given to building a new bridge but a certain commercial boat operator (who is now retired) complained that a bridge that didn’t open was unacceptable. So we got two lego bridges on a temporarly basis which had a life of five (yes five) years.

    Why don’t we just drive over the bridge that no longer opens I ask?

    I swear I see these bridges move when a heavy truck goes over – and even when I drive over in my little car it is scary. One day when one of these temporary bridges collapses and kills someone there will be a lot of angry people. Many will blame PLP since they were in power when the bridges were put up. Betty Trump and a couple of others will blame OBA since they are apparently to blame for everything including the weather. Some will blame UBP and the white slave masters.

    Still these ugly unsafe lego bridge will be temporarily in place. Pathetic.
