Warning: parochial cyclist post. If you cycle anywhere in the UK but have been holding back from reporting whacking great pot-holes on the FillThatHole website because you didn't think anything would happen, stop holding back. It does work, it just takes time. Two months ago I reported a chasm down Lambeth way; yesterday I cycled over that same chasm, which is now a smooth, well-repaired bit of road. I know, I know, it's sad and anoraky, but at least the net result is more (ahem) concrete than writing to your MP to save the world.
