SO, COUNCILLOR John Rampton has stated that "there is no statutory duty on councils to provide public toilets, and over the last decade around half of the public toilets in the country have closed."

Why? Are we supposed to be impressed by his words regarding the rest of the country?

Where are the Health and Safety 'experts' in this?

They are quick enough to condemn people working on ladders but when it comes to something which affects everyone they are strangely silent.

Surely if those who run Poole council did not pay themselves such vastly inflated salaries there would be sufficient money to keep public toilets open for the benefit of everyone.
