Bassam Mahfouz, wannabe Arab MP and local Labour transport and environment supremo, very kindly tooted the trumpet of last Conservative administration with this press release on Monday.
The amount of rubbish being thrown out by residents has dropped by 8% making Ealing one of the top ten performers in the country for reducing waste.
Very wisely Mahfouz praises the work done by Ealing residents to achieve this result. He fails though to make clear that Ealing residents achieved this feat before Cllr Mahfouz started his new role. The 8% figure compares the financial years 2008/9 and 2009/10.
