Let's make a list. The crumbling Birnbeck Pier, the total farce which is the Tropicana, Knightstone being taken away from the public and being given lock, stock and causeway to a private developer so North Somerset Council can make a little more cash and remove the need to have to pay for its upkeep.And now we have attendants at a set of public toilets which were actually award winning and which weren't full of drug addicts pushing needles into every visible vein being made to take flowers and various adornments down "because they are not toilet related."As usual it would appear the council has decided to ignore the wishes of pretty much everyone in Weston and do what it thinks is right which, let's face it, is very rarely the best way - is anyone else more than a little annoyed at the way the Tropicana 'developer' has been given an extension of three months (again) for instance?I challenge the council to show actual proof of the alleged complaints about the interior of the loos as I personally do not believe that even a handful have been sent to the Ivory Tower c/o the Town Hall. The council has said that no matter how much of a public uproar is created it will not change its minds. So wave goodbye to democracy.Maybe it should just close the toilets down, that would save money and building maintenance. Let's all go back to urinating in the gutter and throwing night soil out the windows.NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
