  1. Pot holes are the responsibility of the council not government So what have they spending the money on? Another cover up from a councillor who was “thrown out” for being Not fit for purpose is blaming some one else?


  2. The state of Rotherham’s roads is an utter disgrace. This shower of jumped – up , self – serving half wits couldn’t organise a booze up in a brewery. Not only have they allowed B roads and side roads to fall into disrepair, our A roads and inner town roads are as bad.
    How on earth can you pay inflated salaries to so called “regeneration” shiny arses , when prospective investors in the town see the state of the roads, the litter and the unkempt verges?? RMBC simply have no idea.
