As someone who is suffering from incontinance problems I am getting really fed up with the lack of public toilets in Edinburgh now.The toilets have been closed down,the ones that are open are boggin',and I'm suffering because of it.Quite often I have been caught short,and have had to skuttle off up an allyway or behind a bush,or the alternative is I've got to head to a pub or restuarant where I'm obliged to buy something.It must be worse for people who are wheelchair bound or have mobility problems.This is one council cut that shouldn't happen.

I put a couple of quid on the footie during the season .
But rarely go into a bookie’s shop .
A pal of mine pointed out to me that if you’re caught short , a bookie’s is yer answer .
I’d put a couple of quid on saying he’s right .

But why the hell am I having to go into Bookies, Pubs and Restuarants.There should be adequate public facilities throughout the city, they should be welcoming, clean and free.If me and the rest of the populce who need to use the facilities walked into the city chambers and pissed up the paintings the councilors would take notice.

Im sure I once read some councils abroad subsidise cafes/other places to open toilets to the public to save council money. Something we should look at perhaps?

I've no exactly got the strongest bladder myself and regularly get caught short when I am out. Bookies shops are definitely the best for getting access to a bog in an emergency, but I agree public toilets are a basic human necessity and should not be closed in Edinburgh or anywhere else for that matter. However closing things that the citizens of this city actually need seems to be the order of the day with this council

On a similar subject, I used to know a toilet attendant. He used to tell me got paid his wages time in loo. Must have been an inconvenience for him.

Some do this here too, get paid a few hundred quid to do so.

Just take a piss or shite in a phone box.... Oh wait a minute, they are even harder to come across :doh1:
True enough.
Phone boxes used to be every few streets apart - now you hardly find one - I don't know how many are still in use?
The rise of the mobile phone has replaced them virtually everywhere.
But if you take a shit on your mobile it doesn't do it much good.

3,840 roughly.

I'm not sure how many of those are suitable for non phoning activities.

There should be, but it comes down to money. There's plenty of things that should be provided by the council for the population, but they all cost money, and on the whole, folk are not prepared to pay more tax to allow for services to be offered.

No real excuse for taking a pish down a close during the day. Just wander into a pub or a bookies ffs.

Some toilets are being closed down because gay men are gathering there and performing sexual acts on each other. The toilets on the mound were closed for this reason.
I’m someone who has to use them and I find it disgusting that I have to witness that sort of thing. I’ve nothing against gay men, but I don’t want to witness them in action or have look at jizz in the urinal when I’m having a piss.
