OMG not more

Guess what folks?

They’re building another fence!

Fortunately this one is really well protected by another fence each side of it, so it can’t get scuffed by any passing trucks / kangaroos / Australians / fush.

Look at that picture again.

If you count the blue hoarding behind the metal fence, there are now 7 fences (complete, partial or being built) between Zepler and the building site. Am I the only one that thinks they can probably stop now, and actually put the fecking building up?

Talk about milking a project for all it’s worth.

P.S. It reminds me of the Isle of Lewis, at the northern-most tip of the Outer Hebrides off the north-west coast of Scotland. When I visited in the early 90s, the EU thought it would be a cracking idea to encourage the locals to divide up the land into areas so they could make better use of it. The Scots, being a wily bunch, had a better idea. The locals worked out that if you could build fencing fast and cheap enough, you could live off the EU subsidy for erecting fencing. End result: acres of land divided up into the minimum size required by EU rules. At which point the land was totally useless, but the locals had more beer/whisky money.
