Jeremy Clarkson actually has a point when he makes jokes about the roads in Herefordshire on Top Gear - they are badly maintained and full of pot-holes.
A customer in the shop recently was complaining bitterly about the drive he'd had across the county to get to Hay, and today the pages of the Hereford Times are full of similar complaints. The present contractors who are supposed to be doing the work are Balfour Beatty, but they seem no better than the previous Amey or Jarvis contractors.
There's not really an easy way to get to Hay without crossing Herefordshire - I suppose you could swing north and come down the border from Shropshire - so that means that the decisions of Herefordshire County Council about their roads affect us in Powys - and we can't vote for them.
