Comparisons don’t help a jot
PARKING fee rises? Still very competitive, say the council. Crime increase in Solihull? Not as bad as other areas, say police. Rise in crime on the buses? Better than other services, say bus chiefs.
Why on earth do these people think that comparing and contrasting like this reassures us?
It doesn’t and it is patronising. If I am in pain with a broken leg I am not interested in the bloke next to me and his haemorrhoids. Name and address supplied
