  1. Just read your peice about bollards, OMG, finally a logical non reactionary peice of journalism. So many of the world events are unpredictable, but the public and media demand something be done and the politicians then conduct some pointless window dressing exercise to appease them. Reading your article made me feel relieved that I’m not the crazy one, thankyou.
