Down in Brighton the bin men have struck a blow against the rule of the town's fussbuckets:
The idea of “meat-free Monday” formed part of the Green manifesto before the party took control of the local authority in May.
The Cityclean depot was the first to introduce the change.
But managers have been forced to shelve the scheme immediately after the workers refused to let them give chops the chop for even one day a week.
Excellent news. And Green nanny-in-chief Cllr Kitcat is left whining:
“The idea is to find ways to get staff and people to talk about the issue.
“We will continue to keep having conversations with staff to find out ways forward.”
Somehow I feel those bin men will still be demanding their bacon sarnies and beef pies long after Cllr Kitcat has been voted out of his position.
