And they say councils are stupid.Well this shows that they understand the mentality of the British voter all too well. Read here. I missed this the first time round but picked up the link from Not Proud of Britain.
'Whitehall advice to councils is not to introduce the idea of fortnightly collections too near polling day.
Its Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap) added: "It is advisable to roll out the scheme in autumn, winter or early spring such that by the time warmer weather arrives, residents are used to the scheme and initial resistance has faded." '
Translation : The UK public is so thick they can't remember the screwing we have given them. So we can do all we want to them up until a couple of months before the polls open and they will still all vote for their favourite party. The floaters, of course, realising that all the parties are pretty much the same won't even be bothered voting.
Clearly we have the government we deserve.
