Perhaps the press would stop generalising?

In an unhelpful series of front page stories, the press has whipped up the public into believing that “local councils” don’t have any more grit or road salt to deal with the recent snow and ice.

So I thought I’d set the record straight, at least as far as Kent County Council is concerned.

Before the current cold snap, KCC advanced purchased 20,000 tonnes of salt to deal with any problems.  At the time of writing we still have 3,000 tonnes, more than enough to deal with anything the sky throws down at our county.

So perhaps the press would stop generalising?  Maybe not…

    Kevin, I trust that you did not have in mind the Kent Messenger Group which has faithfully reported KCC’s confidence in its stock supply. Of course, the national press may be guilty of all manner of sins but we do try not to generalise in quite the same casual manner as some of our colleagues.
