What is wrong with this picture?

Can you spot what is wrong with this picture? If you can, why not send a copy to Councillor Bob Belam, cabinet member for the environment, and win a copy of the London Borough of Waltham Forest's exciting GREEN CHARTER, with its fantastic commitments to promoting cycling! (That's 'fantastic' in the sense of 'imaginary'.)

You could also ask Councillor Bob to justify the proliferation of these yellow grit bins in the Borough's streets. They are NEVER used to grit the streets in the winter and seem to serve no other purpose than to advertise discount salt on sale by the Council. But when did you ever meet anyone who'd bought salt from the Council?

For the record, the pic was taken this morning outside the Walthamstow High Street branch of the Nationwide Building Society.
