"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master; that's all."
Councillor Stone proposed and Councillor Marriott seconded:
“This Council notes that Victoria Street has been designated the location for the arrival and departure for the National Express and other long distance buses. This Council therefore resolves to utilise part of the car park in Victoria Street to develop amenities such as a transit area, information board, disabled friendly access and facilities and toilets for the bus users. This Council furthers resolve to investigate the possibility to adapt an empty unit on the Drapery to provide a passenger centre and transit area.”
Oh, yes, we are! Hugely impressed.
After five months of the luxury waiting experience, the Council has installed, at vast expense, some direction signs. And here is one of them.
Please trust fbb; this is NOT a joke; this is not a paste up of bits from Milton Keynes and Northampton; this is a genuine and utterly daft sign in Northampton. It directs innocent and sadly misled National Express passengers to their shelter.
But the best bit is their instruction for getting there by car.
Since we work in public transport,
drive here – if you must,
