Not a fair or logical comparison and nobody would force you to ring them if you don't like them. Some people don't like Pudsey - they don't have 
to ring it.

'Incompetent design' is a very subjective view and IMHO a method which is false and has (say) Queens twice in the plain course is a far more 
agreeable scenario than an unstable aircraft crashing!

The truth is that all this is a waste of time of the Council which should be considering more important things.

Remember all the fuss about variable cover? Where is that now? A short lived fashion not worth the time spent on it. History will decide what is 
worth ringing and the sooner the Council relaxes the rules on method definitions/ descriptions and concentrates on what it can do well the better 
for all of us.
