A senior councillor is calling on her Tory colleagues to do more to combat dogs’ mess on the streets of Southend.Oh? Who is calling for that, then? I'm intrigued!
Anna Waite...Ahahahahahahahahahaha! Yes, that Anna Waite!
Frankly, I cannot think of a better councillor to broach the subject of foul-smelling unwanted deposits than Anna Waite!
...who is battling to be re-elected in St Luke’s ward next month, has handed in a petition to the council on behalf of residents, signed by about 240 people.As many commenters point out, why did she not do something about it before?
Mrs Waite insists she is not criticising the Tory administration, but wants the issue looked at more closely.If she thinks this'll win her re-election, I think she's barking up the wrong tree; her traffic management schemes are making congestion worse and people who formerly voted for her are looking suspiciously at their carpets, sniffing the air, and wondering just what they've stepped in...
