Something Of A Convenience
Normally, if you see two shifty blokes hanging around outside a public toilet you might be suspicious as to their motives. But Dear Reader, there is no need for you to be concerned. Sometimes, it is simply two local UKIP Councillors officially marking the opening of a public convenience. Okay, it had already been officially opened some hours earlier and so the only way they were going to really be able to “open” it would be if they had handy access to a DeLorean and a Flux Capacitor, but you know what they say. It’s the thought that counts.
But there is something terribly sad about a pair of Councillors, after apparently not being invited to the actual opening ceremony, mocking up a fake “opening ceremony” for a public toilet. Apparently, both of them had “done a lot” to get it re-opened. So the Wisbech Standard says and I have no reason to believe it is not true. Some might suggest that all they did was write a letter to the ‘paper and claim to write a letter to the Health Secretary. Some might even point out that the Horsefair had already said it had every intention of re-opening the toilets. But it’s good news the loos are open again and if photo ops are your thing, what better place than outside the Gents on a sunny afternoon?
I hope they washed their hands.
