Surprise, surprise ... the Evening News today reports that the streets in Norwich are getting dirtier despite spending close to £1m of tax payers money on their campaign. The percentage of roads cleaned to a certain standard has fallen from 99% to 93%. Perhaps if a full third of the expenditure wasn't spent on council propaganda advertising the fact that they were cleaning streets, and was spent on actually cleaning the streets, it might not be so bad. I recently spoke to a council spokesman who was gushing about the council's achievements with the "Norwich belongs to all of us" campaign. Yes, the achievement is c.£1,000,000 spent producing 6% more dirty streets. A true achievement for the Norwich Lib Dems.
