Greg Smith takes the rap

Tory H&F cabinet member for street scene, Cllr Greg Smith, has been blamed for the fiasco on the borough's streets this week.

First the council failed to grit the roads properly on Monday when it snowed. Then the much-vaunted newly privatised refuse collection failed to pick up rubbish two days in a row.

The borough is now littered with orange and black sacks, many of which won't be collected until Tuesday next week. Smith has been blamed for these failures which have attracted widespread media attention following a picture on the front page of the Evening Standard on Wednesday.

Greg Smith should start paying attention to his cabinet job and stop writing Shaun Bailey's emails.
