Will it get better ???

Well here we are 5 months on from our last winge about the state of our streets ,and whats happened ,exactually NOTHING .The streets are still a disgrace,litter everywhere ,and the incompetent Northampton Borough Council don't give a damn,they can't even arrange for a representative to address the people that pay their wages.Around June time the so called leader of the NBC posted the above letter in the Chronicle & Echo,as you can see he was either mislead or hadn't a clue as to what going on.As everyone can see the streets over the last year have got increasingly dirtier,with only a motorised sweeper trying to clean the streets,obviuosly not as good as a man & broom did beforehand.

printed in the C & E 2 nov 2009
"The council's current chief executive, David Kennedy, joined Northampton in November 2007 and during that period has overseen the delivery of very significant improvement in performance, and ensured the council is maintaining forward momentum".the authority's spokesman added: "The chief executive is paid £138,"
