Great job in signing petition

Have your say

I would like to sincerely thank those who signed the petition regarding the town’s ambulance station - you deserve all our thanks.

This proves the pen is mightier than the sword.

Talking of swords, it was great news to hear that Grantham’s Prince William of Gloucester Barracks will have new life blown into it, which can only be good news for our town.

There must have been a major dilemma within Nick Boles’ head on which of the good news to use in his ‘piece’ in our Journal (March 8), regardless of its prosaic level, that would accrue him the most publicity.

Our Nick is a political town crier of the highest order and I have decided he should be elected to the High Chamber of the highly secretive Post Turtles Club.

What, I hear you ask is a Post Turtle? Did you not know, most politicians are ... Post Turtles.

Well, when you’re driving down a massively pot-holed road in Grantham, and you come across a fence post with a turtle balance on top, that’s a Post Turtle.

Still puzzled? Let me explain.Well you know for sure that it didn’t get up there by itself, it doesn’t belong up there, it doesn’t know what to do while it’s up there, it’s elevated beyond it’s ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of person puts it up there in the first place.

So, there you have it.
