Conservatives have been busy bragging about their recycling rates this morning
and there is no doubt at all that compared to other boroughs they have done very
well. I cannot think of a single thing that that they could improve but their
bragging can get perilously close to lying at times and I really wish they wouldn’t do it.
Best for 15 years in a row eh? Well not in 2011 when they were not even close and the claim that their garden waste charges are lowest in London stretches a point too, they are only cheapest among the few which charge at all.
Not a bad record but they always have to gild the lily with a lie or two. I wonder why they didn’t Tweet about their record on electric vehicle points. The article below is taken from one of this month’s motoring magazines. Thanks to a reader in an adjacent borough for that one.
