I was not surprised to see that the council did not grit the roads or salt the pavement before the snow. After all, the bad weather had only been predicted for a couple of days. People's safety on the streets receives the priority the council clearly think it deserves.
The council's gritting policy shows it intends to grit roads, but the council responsibility to keep streets clear of snow has, thus far, been more honoured in its breach than observance.
It is a disgrace that a council which can send its mayor and senior councillors to China for a junket cannot keep its streets clear of snow, so ordinary people can travel from Shoreditch to Clapton.
I would hope Jules Pipe would apologise for this appalling state of affairs, but the chances of an apology are as likely as him letting Iain Sinclair into a Hackney library.
