Train, tube stations everywhere is lacking.
In this time of more people, longer queues and especially more alcohol, shouldn't we have many more toilets on every corner?
I'd be more than happy to pay a pound or two extra taxes to help with maintainence and if this was asked from everyone in this country this would be very viable.
Do you agree we need more toilets here?

I never had enough courage to use one of those ones with the revolving door in case it came open before I was finished! I have been known to pop into McD's when in our local high street which has no other toilets. I was told recently that at a nearby station they are changing the toilet access to only enterable via the platform as it was being used by drug addicts.
It's all the fashion to use a cathedral these days, apparently!

I think you are extracting the urine on this
But public loos are usually a bit gross.

I'd rather do a hedge wee.
Most of the people on here have bags anyway :-)
I wouldn't be prepared to pay extra taxes to pay for maintenance of public toilets when there's plenty of other services that need it just that little bit more, there's enough, did your parents never tell you to go before you leave!?
Lack of clean toilets .... those automatic door ones are ok you have 20 mins I think before the door opens... don't get engrossed in a book or newspaper
20 minutes?

Anyone who spends 20 minutes in a public loo is either buying drugs or having it off.

That's a very selfish outlook to have paul.
I'm thinking more of the elderly, sick, disable pregnant and women with children as well as the kids who i see on a daily basis looking or asking for nearby toilets and only secondarily able adults.

There isn't enough and i'm quite flabergasted at your idea that there is.
A lot of shops have them now.

Supermarkets do, and there are loads of coffee shops around.
There's a huge retail park just north of York, I was caught short one day whilst in Currys and asked an assistant where the loos were. They didn't have any and it was only then we realised there were no public loos and only 3 shops out of the 100 or more there actually had them for customers.
Most pubs will let you use theirs, maybe good to ask first.

Joggerjayne id prefer to direct people in need to nearby designated toilets rather than travel to the other side of town to a supermarket or risk embarrassment by trying to get into a coffeeshops toilet only to be told "These are for customers only!"
if you go into a pub or coffee shop and ask they usually say yes. i used to find it really annoying when non customers would just come in, go to the loo and walk out.
Yes, but you did say "especially more alcohol" ...

So presumably the place where they bought the alcohol would have had a loo?
