Why We Are Doomed to Frosty, Dangerous Christmas' For Years

The above is what remains of a council grit bin in an area of Leeds that became near impassable a few weeks ago for the frost. The remains are littered all kinds of debris from the great unwashed, leading me to suspect it was used as a bin either before, and mist likely after.

Credit where credit is due, ZanuNuLabout have over-ridden local councils with enough foresight to buy enough grit for the frosts to lend to those councils who didn't; thereby rendering an entirely different lesson to the one those councils really need.

However, how can this sort of idiotic behaviour be squared against an old lady breaking a hip next year for want of a clear, ice free, gritted road?
