Pain in The Rear as Council Beg Debenhams to Provide Free Loos.

The Liberal Democrat Leader of Portsmouth City Council, Gerald Vernon Jackson, is today begging local retail outlets including Greggs and Debenhams to sign up to a scheme to let the public use their loos for free.

Vernon Jackson has sensationally revealed the council is unable to afford the running costs of its public lavatories.

Tory Group Leader Donna Jones slammed the move as disgraceful and said the ideal way forward should be a simple 20p flat charge.
