In a deleted Twitter post from Cheshire West earlier this year, “Darren” demonstrates why some potholes don’t need to be patched.

Further along the road another potential problem has been reported. Darren inspects it and explains that as it is under 50mm no action needs to be taken at this time

Met with instant backlash, the tweet was briefly defended by @Go_CheshireWest before being taken down. But the internet never forgets, and his questionable method is preserved for all to see.

And meme.
