Last summer a Labour County Councillor complained that the street sweeping machine came before the grass cutter, leaving the gutters clean for only an hour before they were filled with cut grass.
It was apparently all the fault of the Liberal Democrat led authority.
Yet today, the grass cutter is cutting the verge outside my house barely an hour after the gutters were machine-swept, and the gutters ( and path!) are covered in grass.
Oh, it's now a Labour authority
I know that we should be grateful that we get our grass cut and out roads swept [/irony] but can't the different departments talk to each other about timing!
