Today I took a stroll up Abbey Street to see whether the eyesore building on corner of Aquarium Street has been demolished as promised months ago by Denbighshire County Council. It hasn't, as the photo above shows.

Note the new wheelie bins fixed in the street, making the place look uglier. This idea began in nearby John Street in November last year; John Street and Abbey Street are parallel turnings off the seafront.

Very few people would have been given the opportunity to object to the bins in advance, and the department dealing with refuse collection is arrogant enough not to have taken any notice of them anway.

Some say that the department is run by a tyrannical expatriate Geordie. If that is the case, I think he ought to be repatriated at earliest opportunity. County councillors seem too frightened to stand up against him.
