Re: Repeating History....?

You mean like the village I live in..... Orange (as was) applied for permission to erect a 3G base on the outskirts of the village. The villagers, via the parish council, objected, citing the "known" cancer risk. Permission denied. Consequently, coverage continued to be rubbish, and people complained about that. After a few years, coverage improved a lot. Nobody coupled that to the erection of a "telephone pole" (with no wires on it, but a steel cabinet next to it (with Orange clearly printed on the attached operator plate)). Even though knocking on the "pole" clearly informs you it is hollow. I kept quiet. Now they're complaining about some of them being "done" for speeding. The council installed average speed cameras because the village people complained about speeding drivers. Sometimes, stupidity is incurable and epidemic.
