More evidence that under Labour street cleaning has ceased to be a priority can be seen from a “grot spotting” exercise by Cllr Jane Law, Cllr Steve Hamilton and Cllr Robert Largan in the Sands End Ward.
Here are just some examples of what they saw. As I have mentioned before the slide in standards since Labour took control of the council is no surprise – they have abandoned the rigorous monitoring that used to take place with Cabinet Member/Serco “walkabouts”. They have given Serco a clear message that the pressure is off – they will ge paid whether they do a good job or a bad job. Conservative councillors are doing all we can to challenge this culture.
We are demanding this grot gets cleaned up.
