Call on EU to repair roads

First published in Readers' Letters

A COUPLE of years ago I visited the Portuguese Atlantic Islands of the Azores.

The roads were so smooth and well kept, not a pothole in sight.

On asking the guide how they could maintain such good roads when their main income is from exporting pineapples and a growing tourist industry, she replied: “Thanks to funds from the EU”.

Maybe it’s time we asked for a generous stash of cash (as we certainly hand over enough) from the EU to radically improve our dreadful potholed roads.
