Is it just me or has Tooting become more and more run-down, neglected and dirty?

I recall that until a year or two ago the council employed a town centre leader who did a great job encouraging and cajoling residents and businesses alike to take pride in their town.

I believe she left some time ago and has not been replaced.

I wonder if this is because in the Conservative-controlled borough Tooting elects a Labour MP and Labour councillors?

Come on Wandsworth, get someone dynamic, caring, understanding, sympathetic and enthusiastic in to lift this neglected part of the borough out of the doldrums and restore our faith and pride.
