I’m not usually one for Political satire, but in this case, I made an exception. Recently , the Spanish government decided to reduce the speed limit on motorways from 120 kph to 110 kph. Apparently , it’s a temporary measure, for three months, to ‘save oil supplies’. They’ve had to change around 6,000 motorway signs at god knows what cost in materials and man-hours, and, given that most Spanish didn’t bother observing the 120kph speed limit in the first place, and the obvious cost of changing everything back again three months down the line, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to assume it’s a bit of a daft idea. But then, Spain’s no stranger to daft ideas – expanding Almeria airport for example, then making the landing fees so expensive hardly any planes fly there anymore, but hey ho – it all makes for good subject matter as far as my art is concerned!
