I bemoaned the state of the streets around Fountainbridge just a few months ago - see here.
... well, if the evidence from local streets just this weekend is anything to go, things are clearly not improving at all :-(
Just have a glance at these two shots - I, sadly, could have chosen a dozen others to show.
Even more worryingly, the charges for a 'special uplift' for items of this nature were significantly increased (again) in last week's budget.
... subsequently, the situation is likely to get worse not better :-((
It really is time for a complete re-think of this whole policy-area ... the current Lib/Nat Administration, frankly, have made a right mess (sorry) of it.
Not good at all.
