How to spin bad news as good, according to Harrow Council’s PR team. A press release following a day of action in Wealdstone read:
“…the joint operation between Harrow Council, Harrow Police, trading standards and London Fire Brigade saw a drugs raid carried out, tonnes of fly-tip removed, streets cleaned, some counterfeit toys seized and a notice served when a bed in shed was discovered.”
It continued with this statement from Labour’s Cllr Graham Henson: “Harrow is getting better! It’s great to see things have improved in Wealdstone since our last visit…”
So, we’ve got a drugs raid, masses of rubbish dumped in streets, someone flogging dodgy toys, and people living in sheds. And Labour think it’s on the up.
Lord help us.
