RE the Scarborough station clock:
How long is a piece of string - well it depends on your definition, the same seems to be true of the term ‘near future’.
Things certainly don’t go like clockwork in Scarborough do they?
In your Scarborough News of Thursday August 9 it said, “Station Manager Dave Hatterfield said: ‘One of the parts has actually stopped working...The part is on order and hopefully it should be working in the near future.’”
That was three months ago and it’s still not working! If that is the near future I dread to think how long an unspecified future is. Will it be working by 2013? Somehow I don’t think so.
