Come back John Major, all is forgiven

John Major took a lot of flak when he was Prime Minister for the "cones hotline" which was seen as an example of government looking too much about trivialities rather than looking at the big picture.

But just at the moment I would welcome a number I could ring to inquire about the number of cones which have been put out on roads in West Cumbria for no apparent reason and are exacerbating traffic congestion.

Come back John, all is forgiven !

The cones hotline - brilliant.

I remember a joke about it on the TV seris Bottom - Eddy and Richie had been arrested and Richie used the single phone call to call the cones hotline - mistaking it for a different type of premium rate service.
