Reader’s comment: A voice from the traffic jam


In response to Alp Mehmet: There is no Brexodus – but they will still cook the immigration booksAbominable_Yeoman wrote:

Yet more behaviour of governments across Europe that defies logic. Especially our own and the irredeemably appalling individual that currently resides in No. 10.

As I sit in ever longer queues of stationary traffic, I have Fantasia on Greensleeves again playing on my dash-mounted mobile while I wait an inordinate length of time to be connected to my GP’s surgery, read a text from a friend whose daughter failed to secure a place in their local community secondary school and observe growing hordes of people stomping up the station concourse to shoehorn themselves on to already packed trains.

Next to my vehicle and throughout my short journey to work, are cranes and trucks moving steel, glass and masonry, ever higher up into the London sky. Constructing phone booth-sized flats for thousands more dwellers eager to drink from the UK’s well of opportunity and welfare.

I think how fortunate for me that none of these new neighbours of mine will need to use the road, or access healthcare, send their children to local schools or avail themselves of the city’s public transport infrastructure. How fortunate indeed.

Is that someone saying hello? No, still Vaughan Williams . . .
