SO GLAD to see that Torfaen council are encouraging tenants to get artistic and to personalise their wheelie bins. I dare say many people will create their own “masterpiece” along the lines of “Fight austerity, no cuts to services! No council tax increases!” Maybe a portrait of a favourite politician such as Iain Duncan Smith, David Cameron or Nick Clegg could adorn the bin with a suitable comment such as “Home sweet home “or “Total Banker”!(etc). I am sure the fun to be had will be enormous. It’s a great pity Torfaen council can’t supply the paint!
