Is there any response or contrition from @S_Hammond @MertonTories on this so far? Btw I’m extending the use of #MuckyMerton to anything about #Wimbledon and #merton that is grubby. ‘sorry’ to @lovewimbledon if they don’t like it. We don’t drink their Kool-Aid twitter.com/therapyangel1/…

In these awful times it is worth noting that without the discarded packaging from @kfc, @BurgerKing, @McDonalds, @GreggsOfficial @CostaCoffee et al, litter has *greatly* reduced. Fast food businesses must step up & take responsibility for the rubbish they generate. #muckymerton pic.twitter.com/rbDOGx3QhF

This is what I’m forced to pay council tax for in #muckymerton. And let’s not forget the police who have point blank refused to investigate the crimes that I have reported to them. Probably because the crimes were committed by the police and @Merton_Council “SS” but I’m still pic.twitter.com/S7g5vNvhIJ

@Merton_Council just when we think you can’t get any lower you send out swarms of traffic wardens to issue tickets. Many people collecting shopping for vunerable & elderly and they return to their car to find a parking ticket. Absolute disgrace. #muckymerton

A load of nonsense, only thing that I agree with is “profitable business model” if only for a short time before losing the contract, while you remove resources, & do as little as possible #muckymerton Uncollected communal waste Abandoned street cleaning Not returning receptacles pic.twitter.com/f5juwPuPPd
