War on Waste roadshow comes to Leicester

July 06, 2014 2:33 PM

This morning the War on Waste roadshow rolled up at the High Street at Leicester. We pitched up at the end near the site where the council has recently knocked down a car-park in order to build a new town square. Here we drew attention to unnecessary spending such as the £6,000 given to minor celebrities to appear at council events and were joined by a BBC camera crew.

WOW Nottingham 180

Bravely, the Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, even stopped by to defend big spending with taxpayers’ money. He didn’t stay to discuss matters though, as he rushed said he was going to church, perhaps to confession. A small problem with our minibus didn’t set us back, and we received a good reaction with people coming to tell us about a variety of local issues.

We’re now on our way to Nottingham where we’ll be campaigning this asfternoon. Find out where else we’re visiting by clicking here
