I hope we manage to get the queen back to blackburn many times in the future, we might then get most of our bad roads re-surfaced. That stretch of darwen street has been patched up and crying out to be done for years. I'm glad they ripped out the cobbles too and they do the same to church street, then the disabled and mums with prams can enjoy a smoother ride instead of being shaken to death.

Can she be booked more regularly?
Then we might have fewer pot-holed roads!
Can a list be made of the roads she can visit in future?
Perhaps a top ten to start with.
When was 4,000 holes in Blackburn Lancashire penned?

A cover up job so the queen won‘t know the truth.

How about getter Jack Straw to give her a tour of the Blackburn he’s created over the past thirty odd years!

I hope they have fixed the broken toilet seat in the cathederal and put some loo rolls in there this time, the good stuff mind, none of that cheap stuff, we cant have queenie sat on a broken throne where the flusher don't work and the cheap wipes keep blocking up the bog all the way to the sewer...its the over flow as well,.. sort of like a tsunami of unmentionables cascading over the toilet rim looking for somewhere to go.
There's a bloke I know on the market who's got some biodegradable stuff, let you have it cheap he will. .perhaps the bishop ought to nip round and have a word in his shell like,. just ask for luco and tell tell him harry the hat sent you

PS - To cover up what’s wrong with Blackburn will take more than concrete!

But please remember that Jack Straw will be thankfully saying his last goodbye next year so you can expect there to be an awful lot more money spent covering up what he’ll be leaving behind.

Doesn’t it make you feel good after selling your own property to have tidied things up for the next person who’s moving in?
