I see that the Brighton Politics Blogger gave his “most Inspired Campaign of the Year to the Labour Party for LOLA, the campaign, to save public toilets from closure.” I also notice that his “Trend Setters Award goes to .... the Labour Party of the early 1990′s for starting the public toilet closure programme in Brighton.” Politics and awards aside, if signing the petition can help prevent some inconvenience, it's worth doing.
There is an organisation called the British Toilet Association, whose mission is to represent the interest and aspirations of 'away from home' toilet providers, suppliers and users of all types and to act as the catalyst for change in the pursuit of standards of excellence in all areas of public toilet provision and management. The BTA notes that:
- Britain's public toilets were once the envy of the world
- In recent years, significant number of public toilets have been closed down
- We need more and better toilets
