I think 90% of the posters on here can all agree they have accomplished pretty much nothing they set out to do in three years. Possibly because the greens and Winston have been a handbrake on a lot of things.

Let them have 3 more years. They can’t do any worse surely?

Its still trending downwards which is good to see, 18 days into level 4 I expected it to be a lot lower though. The chances of having the city out of level 4 in 3 weeks are not looking good.
