There is a world of difference between a Closed-Circuit TV and a Closed-TV Circuit.

Anyone who can see the car does not need to be told it is "visible".
Dean Finnie, being a local, had quite a different take on it. "I was amused by the thought that the local police have to differentiate between the usual standard of invisible policing and this presumably 'premium' service of visible policing. It was the first time we'd seen the visible service!"

Now, I am not the world's greatest linguist but even I could work out that the message here was a trifle inconsistent.
If you are Swiss, German, French or Italian it pays not to go swimming. "Mortal Danger" or "Danger of Death". However, if you are English - get on in there. "Danger of Life!"

Two stations I pass through every day are festooned with signs, all of which have "Temporary sign" in the corner. Apart from the fact that these signs have been there for months, what is the point of the addition in the corner? Does the travelling public care if the sign is temporary? No.
So apart from making extra work for the sign-writer and extra cost for the rail company, I am mystified.
Best suggestions please.

Information is currently available, the information that the help point is not yet operating. A clearer message would be, "Sorry, this help point not in service."

This tree will be felled shortly"
Do you think someone should point out to the Department of Environment that the "tree" the notice is attached to was felled some years ago and milled into a fence post.

Not quite sure what Grant is telling the local voters here:
a) Vote for constancy by re-electing him.
b) Vote for change. (small text in corner)
No wonder the average UK voter is confused.

I wonder what the scaffold is on strike over? Better conditions - don't like being out in all weathers? Want thicker planks? Shinier poles? Perhaps it is simply tired of being walked over by those higher up?

If you have ever visited London, you will know the expression "Mind the Gap"; it is seen and heard at every Tube (metro) and railway station.
Well, you will be pleased to know that London Underground also provide an "Emergency Gap Jumper" at certain stations. This one is a Piccadilly Circus.
Just in case you ever need one ...

I blame it on the fact that the walkway at my local station was closed. Although, I note that No Access managed to pass this point at some time in the past.
