I don't know your politics Pops, but most of these sorts of complaints come from people who also complain about the level of Council Tax and applaud when it's frozen or reduced. Let Council Tax rise by the same amount as inflation each year and the councils might be able to grit our pavements immediately it snows.
May actually be a slogan there - "Frozen council tax = frozen pavements".

Works quite well.Not sure how they deal with infirm pensioners, but I guess neighbours help.
