Ian Blair Hamilton, MyocumToilets

So the ongoing saga of the Brunswick Heads toilets continues with letters, council consultation, petitions, Echo articles… and still they are pathetically cleaned.

I do wonder at times like this whether Trumpist fake news is beginning to play here. I can imagine Donald Trump, mayor of Byron, standing in front of the cameras saying, ‘no, it’s fake news. The toilets are spotless. I ate off the urinal yesterday. Yes, it’s the Democrats’ fault here. They hate my success and are intentionally dirtying up our perfectly clean toilets’.

‘That run-down Byron Echo is a nest of unprogressive, heathen socialists!’

Back to reality: last info via a councillor was that cleaning toilets might – note might – be included for consideration in the next budget meeting.

Translation: We don’t care, we don’t want to know, and we don’t care about Brunswick Heads.
