Development Coming Soon

In writing this post, I have to break my self-imposed Golden Rule that, if you can’t say anything nice, say nothing at all.

I recently visited my country of birth, Britain, and it was good to see my grandmother, Mum and Dad, brother and nephews, as well as many friends.

I really don’t want to be one of expats that seems to hate their county of birth. There is much to recommend Britain as a country. I still miss Yorkshire pudding, John Smith’s beer and conversations about rain.

However, I am still often disappointed in Britain as a country. My disappointed can be encapsulated in this photograph: ‘Development Coming Soon’.

The sign is at least three years old.
