You have a good idea? Then state the problem, and state your idea, in order that we can marvel at our collective genius. Problem - potholes. The Carncil send a bloke out with some yellow paint. He then paints rings around the potholes that require repair. The Carncil then leave it so long the yellow paint wears off leaving no trace. Solution - sack the man with the yellow paint. It's clearly a pointless, make-work job. Use the cash saved to actually just get out and repair potholes. In fact, this solution is transferable and scaleable, and can be applied to the useless third of any organisation, the veritable Golgafrinchans. So let's hear your ideas.
