CREDIT WHERE IT'S DUE

Today the "News of the World" deserves it for a toilet "EXCLUSIVE" - take a bow JAMIE LYONS ("political No. 2" at the NotW). His unaltered "exclusive" is set out below.

And BBC RADIO 4 "Broadcasting House" also deserves praise for having flagged it up with pointed comments for why is was so doing.


"Shop till you plop - loos open to all by law.
Stores, pubs and restaurants must open their loos to the public - by law.
And non-customers won't even have to spend a penny t0 use them.
An official Toilets Taskforce set up by Communities Minister Phil Woolas will flush out thousands of places where we can go to beat a national khasi crisis. Then he'll produce a bog standard internet map listing them all. Mr. Woolas's reason's are:
NUMBER 1. Families with kids, old folk and the disabled are often caught short and embarrassed on outings.
NUMBER 2. Tourists complain that we're round the bend as in London alone there's only ONE one toilet for every 67,000 visitors.
Businesses cannot stall - the law coming in this autumn will force them to put up signs offering relief. They can charge but half the cash must go to charity. Councils will be ordered to erect temporary urinals in towns on Friday and Saturday nights for drunken yobs. And planners must include public toilets in all new shopping schemes.
Mr Woolas, who has already had talks with McDonald's, said: "Where there is no provision, some people urinate in, or worse, foul, the street and that can blight our environment."

Kilroy comments - obviously these developments would be helpful even though they leave many important questions unanswered and the prioritisation of drunken yahoos over all others is questionable. Given the many posts to this blog about Lambeth Council leader Steve Reed (who promotes himself as a "columnist" while at the same time staying absolutely tight lipped about this problem - hence never a word about it in his in-house monthly propaganda rag "LAMBETH Life" - he may feel that these imminent developments will serve to loosen his tongue a little. And at the same time few other relevant togues - Cllr Lib Peck, and Stockwell's 3 ever-silent Ward Councillors.

Mr Reed could do a "column" explaining what's he's doing to make sure these proposals do take off pronto in Lambeth - including those making sign-age obligatory.
