Are some people thick?

You shouldn't have to tell them, it's all over the news, TV, radio, leaflets in shop windows and doors, posters on walls.

Of course, those in power can change their minds and do U-turns when it's convenient for them.
They can but I doubt they will for this project because of the crowds over the Monkwearmouth Bridge.
