Boris Is Good For Our Bladders

Back in June we said Boris needed to get serious about public peeing. Seems he's a Londonist reader as today he called for more firms to get on board with the Community Toilet Scheme. This prosaic and uninspiringly named scheme pays local businesses to open up their private facilities for public convenience. Piloted in Richmond and launched this year in Wandsworth, Boris wants it rolled out London-wide and not only for Freedom Pass wielding third agers.

While SatLav will be even more helpful with an influx of new loos available to text you and problem pee-ers will have less of an excuse to widdle through your letterbox the last CTS WC we visited did stink to high heaven despite being in the basement of a rather respectable, Richmond Borough pub. We hope this isn't representative as nothing will scupper Boris' vision of comfort and relief for all, wherever you may be in town, than patrons of businesses getting pissed off about the state of the smallest room.

when munich hosted the olympics in whenever it was (1972ish? im too lazy to google) they had far too few public toilets to cope with the number of visitors, so anywhere that served alcohol was forced to make their toilets available to members of the public as one of the terms of their licence. something else for london to bring in by 2012?
