I have been to the gents toilet in Devonshire Square a couple of times recently and found them in a disgusting state. How often are they cleaned I wonder?

They were completely refurbished not long ago.

I remember going to a public meeting when the council decided to close a few toilets to save money.

I suspect that a man has to drive around to clean 50 or more toilets in this area.

There are often a lot of blue tablets thrown into the urinals but that doesn’t solve the problem.

Surely any ordinary person with a bucket of hot water containing some disinfectant and some cleaning fluid could make a super job with a mop.

Gone are the days when a lady cleaned them regularly and displayed a vase of flowers.

Of course I realise that there are some idiots that must write on the walls and muck the place up.

I saw footprints on a toilet seat, perhaps the toilet user was too disgusted to sit on the seat.

Why can’t we be more civilized?
