Winyates Green residents give their verdict on Vladimir 'Poo Tin' - The Redditch Standard

Winyates Green residents give their verdict on Vladimir 'Poo Tin'

Redditch Editorial 7th Apr, 2022   0

THE wags on Winyates Green have been rebranding the litter and poo bin with a neat line on the name of the Russian president.

And a phone call to the Redditch Standard office was all it took for roving photographer Marcus Mingins to head out to discover what was happening.

Vladimir Putin has been the subjection of widespread condemnation after launching an unprovoked attack on neighbouring country Ukraine.

Each night the devastation inflicted by his army on the towns, cities and people of Ukraine have been beamed into living rooms the world over.

Mr Putin has been labelled a war criminal by US president Joe Biden while the good people of Winyates Green have come up with their own and subtly descriptive view of the man.

The bins are situated in the footpath between Furze Lane and Kingham Close if other local dog walkers want to take their pooch’s deposits to the ‘poo tin’.
