Odds are we will still be waiting for a relief road to be built and the OLM will be full of pound shops and charity shops and roads will resemble farm tracks, with large ruts in them (nothing new there then) waiting to trap unwary travellers.
There will be no independant convenience stores left as Tesco will have taken them all over, and we will still be wating for a Burger King!

A happy, vibrant place that is full of visitors overwhelmed by the superb shops and tourist facilities, free car parking, magnificent road system, a council that thinks only of the people, and the new incredible state of the art university - not to mention the world famous football stadium that attracts record crowds to see the best team in the Premier League.
Blimey! My tablets are working really well today!

Surprise surprise, in 2050 Hereford will look like it did in 1450, it can only get worse. there will be a city wall which will encompass the town, there will be no gates, once you are born you will stay till you die. there will be strange metal things, called roads except they will be cars, nose to tail and trapped for ever, every now and again good people from far off lands will send food and things over the walls, to the masses waiting there, there will be smug and self centred people saying how good it is that we are not bothered by strangers any more , all the shops will be shut, and people will all be having a great time. I still say getting back to the 16.00ds our council will never do anything for the good of the people or our proud city, like national governments, these people only see the population as a blight on their collective, misunderstanding of real life?
