A colour scheme for a pathway on Weymouth harbour has divided opinion so much it has ended up as a story in the national newspapers and on ‘Have I Got News For You’. At a time when we are told that we should move on from Partygate because there are more important things going on many of the public of Weymouth do not appear to have got the memo.

Councillors and residents are getting their underwear in a twist because they do not like the colour. One councillor a Mr Louie O’Leary apparently compared the pavement colour to Shrek and a local member of the public called it a ‘puke green’.

The presenters… of ‘Have I Got News For You’ however were left somewhat bemused.

Thus with Weymouth and Portland having the unenviable distinction of having the lowest wages in the country

and a town centre that resembles the back drop to The Specials 1981 No 1 hit Ghost Town is it any wonder that a local Conservative councillor would prefer to whip up froth about a colour scheme.

Perhaps Paul Merton is correct. Perhaps a dog farting is the highlight of many a Weymouth person’s day.
