Thursday stuff & toilets

Based as this magazine is in Yeovil we do sometimes throw our hands up in despair at the apparent idiocy of life here.

Recently the main public toilets in the town centre shopping area were closed. Why? Because they were being used as gay pick places and venues for drug taking. The result? If you are desperate for the loo in Yeovil you had better be prepared to dive into one of the up market department stores.

Guess what guys in the council and town centre partnership, drug takers will still take drugs and people looking for a quick sexual thrill are still out there, toilets open or closed.

The Yeovil vision group prides itself on having that most desirable blend of city qualities in a country area. Presumably those qualities include people urinating in the streets and having to walk up to half a mile from the town centre to change a baby's nappy.

What a joyful place to be. Come on guys others towns manage to provide toilet facilities in central locations, why can't Yeovil? Oh and before someone trots out the old "it's too expensive line", just how much will the clean up costs be, to wash down the streets each day, that are covered in piss? How long will it be before someone challenges the council using the Human Rights Act, on the basis that their human right to dignity has been breached?
