The picture on the front of today's Evening Standard is hardly the PR coup that Tory H&F council wanted when they launched the newly privatised waste collection service this week:
Growing piles of orange and black sacks throughout the borough reflect the failures of the Tories to grit the streets and collect refuse. So much for cleaner streets and a smarter borough.
PS it now appears that many of these sacks will be left uncollected on the streets until Tuesday next week! That's according to the council's own website, so it must be true.
