But is it? Because the Mail explains:
Now the Mail is calling on town halls to let council tax payers choose between wheelie bins, ordinary dustbins or biodegradeable bags.
But if wheelie bins are such a monstrosity, why does it want to give people the choice to keep them?
Its evidence is thin. It has taken a few selective snaps from around the country on collection days, when bins are inevitably more visible, as if to prove the problem. A load of black plastic sacks on a roadside would probably look quite bad too...
On the day Romanians have been forced from their homes in Belfast after a series of racist attacks, the Mail believes the most important issue to campiagn about is how bins look. Here's something for the Mail to try: something on anti-racism, to campaign against the BNP and the anti-immigrant attitudes that led to those attacks. That would be of far more value to people in this country, rather than campaigning against some sodding plastic boxes.
