Not for the first time this month, Council leaders have abandoned the City in search of more glamorous surroundings. At the peak of the bins crisis they had a jaunt to London pausing only to pose next to a “Visit York” poster at a tube station.
Today they are in Paris for the official launch of the “Tour de France”. Just how many launches this cycle race really needs is open to question.
The absence of the Leader of the York Council would be unlikely to be noticed.
Meanwhile it has become clear (below) what will happen to the junk that has built up in many salt bins over the last year, now that the Council is desperately trying to re-fill many of them.
