Spelman Bins Her Own Promise

Guido isn’t sure Caroline Spelman has thought through her decision to scrap weekly bin collections. The huge doorstep issue was a vote winner last year. Why else did the then Shadow Local Government Minister push the issue so hard during the election:

“Spelman said the Conservatives will scrap these Lib-Lab plans for bin taxes. Instead, we will reward families for recycling and going green, and will work with councils to bring back proper weekly rubbish collections. This is a clear choice at this election: Conservatives who will help bring back weekly collections, Labour who imposed fortnightly collections, or Liberal Democrats who are already forcing through monthly bin collections.”

No wonder she pulled out of all her media appearances this morning at the eleventh hour.
