Sorry Alex but maybe you should visit NZ some time before making too many excuses for the roads here, I've driven on both and the roads in Scotland are to put it bluntly "utter s**te" and are in a disgraceful state of repair in many places. I don't really care whether they date back to the Roman times or not, we live in 2017 now and we pay a lot of council tax (far more than I did in NZ) for broken and potholed roads, blocked and ineffective storm drains that constantly flood and only a bi-weekly rubbish collection...
Yeah, I'll nip over to sample the roads eh..........like roads are such a meaningful thing in my life.
NZ this and NZ that. Nobody twisting your arm to stay here mate. You obviously lack any appreciation for this country or it's culture and history.
Weather , roads, bins, pollution, lack of blue sky, councils. Back to your Rookie Nation of Mutton Molesters for you I think
Whether I choose to live here or not and what the reasons are are my own business thank you.
I do like Scotland and have good reasons to be here, however just because I wasn't born here doesn't mean I somehow don't have the right to complain about things that should be put right. "Go home if you don't like it" is a pretty poor retort.
I pay taxes just as much as anyone else here, and I am bringing up a son here who will one day have to drive on these roads too. If you want to drive on pothole infested "Roman" roads and be happy with it, be my guest, but some of us would actually like to drive on 1st world roads instead of 3rd world roads, and I'm sure Davie would agree. If nobody complains, nothing will get done about it, that much is a fact.
If you're embarrassed that a small "colony" country of 4 million people can have superior roads to the "motherland", perhaps you should be. I only use it as an example of how things can be and that it is not a given that we should suffer through terrible roads and just "put up with it".
To be honest I've had enough of your constant sniping at me on the forum over the last few months including over on my blog, (nobody is forcing you to read my blog if you don't like it) I'm sure you think you're being funny but it's just plain boorish and unnecessary. So for that reason you're getting added to my ignore list so I'm not tempted to rise to any more of your bating. Cherio.
