Following on from yesterday’s article about Sussex police I came across this story which did not quite work out as Birmingham city council had planned.
There are two problems first of all a 720,000 pamphlets celebrating Birmingham’s recycling success were printed out with a picture of the city’s skyline –
First problem; the photo they used was of Birmingham, Alabama – more than 4,000 miles away in the U.S so instead of seeing landmarks such as the Rotunda they were replaced by U.S. office blocks.
Second problem why print 720,000 leaflets to celebrate recycling success surely there is something wrong both environmentally and financially as it cost taxpayers £16,000 !!!
