Will the day ever come?

The good folk of Rothbury must have been thrilled to see that the rail line at Dawlish on the south coast was repaired.

It is amazing what can be done in 10 weeks.

Our glorious leader was also in attendance, picking up some brownie points.

Looking ahead to the day when the road to Rothbury is finally repaired, I wonder if any future Prime Minister will be there for the opening.

At the moment he is probably still doing his O-Levels at Eton.
