Walking my dog this morning I was reminded of the different types of hole we have in this country.
First, I past a Public Sector hole. This had one man standing in it, someone else watching the man in the hole, for H+S reasons no doubt and someone supervising the whole hole! Alongside there were 2 others having a cigarette.
Second was the private sector hole. This had one man driving the lorry that was going to take the hole away and had one man driving the digger that was placing the hole in the lorry. Nobody was in the hole, presumably as they would get in the way of progress and the hole was about 20 times larger than the public sector hole.
And then of course there is the Prime Minister’s hole: this is a very large hole and now very deep having cost billions to dig. But it’s only a one man hole as the rest of the crew have walked away from it.
And strangely all three holes were delivered at public expense as even the private sector hole mentioned above was being dug as part of a public sector contract.
