Bristol bin emptying costs underestimated
« on: October 12, 2012, 09:34:34 AM »
Did anyone else see the bit on BBC News this morning about the Bristol bin emptying company that have admitted that they didn't realise how much it would cost so to do?


Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

And not give the contract to the lowest bidder or their mates the next time!
