Rubbing rock salt into residents' wounds

Having failed to grit the borough's streets at the beginning of this week, Tory H&F council has already prepared its excuses in case there's another snow storm.

The Tory council has today issued a press release saying it has almost run out of salt and blames the government (again!). Why has H&F council failed to prepare properly (again!)? All the Tories seem concerned about is preventing another embarrassing front page picture in the Evening Standard.

Some people may remember when the previous Labour council was criticised for storing too much salt! Those were the days...

I'd like to point out hfconwatch dog that almost all the labor boroughs in London (yes, labor-shock!) did not provide salt for the roads on the snow days. This could be explained perhaps, by noring that London has not had significant snowfall since 1991. How long have you lived here hfconwatch?
