Merry Easter!

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to a particularly daft piece of eco Nanny nonsense, emanating from Porthtowan Cornwall.

In January, for reasons best known to themselves, the local council decided to plant 100 discarded Christmas trees on the beach.

For why?

In Nanny's opinion these trees would help build a defence against the waves and the ongoing erosion of the beach. Nanny expected the trees to end up being covered in sand.

Can you guess what happened next children?

Yes, that's right, the trees died and are now sticking up on the beach (not covered in sand) forming a mini petrified forest.

The Porthtowan Dunes Community Group say the plan has failed, leaving the battered and weather-beaten Christmas trees sticking out of the sand.

Thus as we approach Eater the beach looks absurd.

Locals who want to dig the trees up have been threatened with legal action by the council.

A letter from countryside officer Jolyon Sharpe warned members of the Porthtowan Beach Management Group they could face legal action if they pushed ahead.

As per the Mail it read:
"If the group feel that it is appropriate to act independently of Cornwall Council it will have to consider its options regarding taking action to prevent such unauthorised interference and any appropriate recompense. 

I would sincerely hope that we can work together to ensure the most appropriate outcome for this area and that the Council will not have to resort to such a response."
Cornwall Councillor Joyce Duffin said:
"I can't comment if the trees are or are not working, though I think they are trapping some of the sand.

They would need to have permission [to remove the trees] because it's council land."
Ironically were householders to have dumped their trees on the beach they would have been fined for fly tipping.

Merry Easter everyone!

Industrial CCTV - Ker Farking Ching!

 
As I have noted many times before on this site, councils are reluctant to face budgetary reality; ie they refuse to cut their coat according to their cloth.

Instead they use us as passive "milch cows", taxing and fining us to the brink of bankruptcy.

Fines are a favoured means to extracting money as Brandon Lewis, the local government minister, has noted. He has drawn attention to the fact that councils are using CCTV to issue motorists with parking fines on an “industrial” scale.

Big Brother Watch  has found growing numbers of local authorities are using the cameras to monitor parking offences and other traffic contraventions, in the five years to the end of March 2013 drivers have been fined at least £312M because of these cameras.

At least 36 local authorities across England and Wales are using static CCTV cameras and at least 58 are using cameras mounted on cars.

Lewis is quoted by the Telegraph in response to the report:
It is clear that CCTV is being used to raise money in industrial volumes for town halls, breaking the constitutional principle that fines should not be used as a source of revenue.
Unreasonable parking charges and fines push up hard-working people’s cost of living.
If parking is too expensive or difficult, shoppers will drive to out of town supermarkets or just shop online, undermining the vitality of town centres and leading to ‘ghost town’ high streets.
That’s why the Government intends to clampdown on this clear abuse and misuse of parking CCTV.
Emma Carr, deputy director of Big Brother Watch, said:
The fact that no councils publish proper statistics about how these cameras are used highlights that many know that their CCTV operation is about raising money, not about public safety.
The Government rightly wants to reign in this unjustified surveillance, so councils are turning to desperate arguments about public safety to justify their cameras, despite having absolutely no evidence to back up their claims.
The use of CCTV and spy cars for parking enforcement should be banned.”
Peter Box, chairman of the Local Government Association’s economy and transport board, pooh poohs the suggestion the CCTV is being used to raise revenue:
It is frustratingly familiar to hear Big Brother Watch again peddling the myth that councils are enforcing parking regulations just to raise money.

Road safety campaigners, schools, disability and pedestrian charities and councils have all come together to warn the Government that banning CCTV parking enforcement will put school children and disabled pedestrians at risk and worsen road safety.” 
Well, he would say that wouldn't he?

BMI Is Bollox


I was gemused to see recently that our local pharmacy has installed a combined weighing/BMI calculating machine that charges the hapless punter 50p a pop.

This is all very well if BMI (Body Mass Index) actually meant anything. However, as we all know, it is a meaningless and useless measure.

Step forward Anita Albrecht, who finished sixth in Miss Galaxy Universe 2012, who was recently told by an NHS nurse at the Harold Hill Health Centre to lose weight and exercise more. She was told to consume a paltry 1,000 calories a day!

For why?

Ms Albrecht's BMI was 29, this is classified as "overweight".

Ms Albrecht quite rightly, was less than impressed and told the Mirror:
"She insulted me by making assumptions about my lifestyle without asking me.

She said you are obviously eating too much.

She put me on scales and clearly I'm a lot heavier than other women of my height because I'm a bodybuilder."
To add insult to injury she was told to cut out alcohol and fruit juices that she doesn't drink.
"All of these were assumptions made and, quite frankly, they angered me," she added.

I felt insulted, was made to feel as though I was overweight, over eating and I felt a knock in my confidence."
Surely one ounce of commonsense could have told the nurse that Ms Albrecht was of a greater muscle density than the average person?

Nanny's Love of Tamiflu


I see that a review carried out by Oxford University has concluded that the anti flu drug Tamiflu, given to tens of thousands of people during the swine flu pandemic, does nothing to halt the spread of influenza and that Nanny wasted nearly £500M stockpiling it.
The study found that Tamiflu, which was given to 240,000 people in the UK at a rate of 1,000 a week, has been linked to suicides of children in Japan and suggested that, far from easing flu symptoms, it could actually worsen them.

Nanny, let me also remind you, is dead keen that we drink water with added fluoride.

This is why I brush my teeth with vodka!

Vermin Alert


Sadly Brighton is to be infested once again by a surfeit of wankers from both the extreme right and left of the political spectrum, whose only intent is to come here for a fist fight and to disrupt the peaceful lives of the vast majority of decent people who live and visit here.

Sunday 27th of April sees the return of the March for England, performed by retards from the EDL. Last year some of the retards from this organisation deemed the Brighton Pavilion to be a mosque.

Much like flies around shit, the extreme left deem it necessary to come along as well to engage in fist fights with the EDL and with the police.

The residents and tourists of Brighton have no say as to where these scum chose to fight, that is in the hands of the council and police.

Can you guess where the council and police have chosen to place the scum?

Yes, that's right, in the most popular and busy part of the town - the seafront along the coast road between the Aquarium roundabout and WestStreet. Thus ensuring that no decent person (be they tourist, resident or business person) can be about their lawful business. Last year the route was impassable to anyone other than scum from the right and left of the political spectrum.

By all means allow the scum to conduct their pitched battles, but please can the route be place in the far more appropriate area of under the sea.

Message to both the extreme right and left:

SHRIVEL UP AND DIE YOU ODIOUS SCUM 

You are not welcome here!

The Evils of Socialism - Nanny To Weigh People Buying Booze


Courtesy of the Socialist Health Association:
"....The supply of tobacco products to anyone born after 1.1.2000 is made an offence under the Misuse of Drugs Act....

..Remove the exemption from VAT from refined sugar on the basis that it has no nutritional value....

...Anyone selling more than a lethal dose of alcohol to a customer must notify the NHS of the sale and the customer’s name and address. The idea is to make selling alcohol a bureaucratic chore, so retailers could be required to weigh customers in order to calculate their lethal dose..."
Are you happy that Nanny may one day order that you be weighed every time you buy booze?

The Temperance Movement was once regarded in the US as being a fad, and merely run by "nut jobs". Yet that movement managed to ban booze for many years, thus spurring an explosion of criminal activity unprecedented in a civilised society.
