Crawley Labour's "Priority" Pledge on Fly-tipping In Tatters

Six weeks ago when I first saw this Council press release saying that dealing with fly-tipping was a priority for the new Labour Administration at Crawley Borough Council, it crossed my mind that this was an attempt to be seen to be saying the right things. Don’t get me wrong, I am very supportive of attempts to deal with this anti-social and criminal behaviour, but the implication that somehow under the Conservatives, Crawley Council wasn’t trying to deal with the problem is of course wrong. If it was that easy, we would have cracked it a long time ago.

Crawley Labour's 'crackdown' on fly-tipping in Crawley town centre... 
I took this picture on Friday afternoon in The Boulevard in Crawley town centre and then reported it to the Council. This is the same road where Crawley Town Hall is located and this fly-tipping is literally a few hundred feet from the town hall. I was also able to establish that this rubbish had been dumped in the heart of Crawley town centre since at least Wednesday.
Six weeks after the Labour Council’s big press release, for such a large amount of fly-tipping to sit rotting so close to the town hall for three days (so far) clearly shows that Labour are all talk and no action on the issues that matter to Crawley residents.

Labour are a bad joke. They stop the Boulevard town centre north regeneration and replace it with this!
