Halloween


It being Halloween again, I will be carving a very large pumpkin but battening down the hatches in preparation for the annual avalanche of trick or treaters (an annoying custom imported from the USA).

The only person I will be opening my door to this evening will be the Tesco delivery man, who is scheduled to deliver 96 cans of Red Stripe! I would note that, thusfar, Red Stripe cans do not besport their calorie content.

Happy Halloween everyone!

Brighton and Hove Council Addicted To Fines



As loyal readers know, Nanny and her chums from our "beloved" local councils are addicted to issuing fines and charges over and above council taxes. The monies raised from these fines are used for paying Nanny's bills and for her pet projects, that invariably are hair brained or useless.

Step forward Brighton and Hove Green Council, which raked in £11.5M from car permit and penalty charges in 2013/14. According to The Argus the equivalent figure in 2012/13 was £10.9M.


More than £3.6M of last year’s parking kitty was raised through the issue of 117,772 penalty charge notices (PCNs). This is an increase from 114,332 in 2012/13.

The council claims that the money raised is pumped back into transport projects.

Are these projects for motorists?

No!

The schemes include concessionary bus fares for the elderly, installing new cycle lanes and planting lots of new trees around roads leading into Brighton in a bid to welcome motorists. Seemingly the trees were meant to make the motorist feel better!

As I have noted before, councils are the enemies of the people!

Prats of The Week - Brighton and Hove Council

As ever, the Green led council down of the sarf coast manages to make a mockery of itself by imposing petty and arbitrary rules and regulations based on Nanny's mantra of "health and safety".

This time Brighton and Hove council, in its infinite "wisdom", has decreed that two small ornamental fountains in a couple of sheltered housing schemes pose a risk of legionnaires' disease.

The council's solution?

Fill them in!

One fountain in Elwyn Jones Court in South Woodlands, London Road, Brighton was paid for out of the bingo winnings of one of the residents (Joyce Hutson) and installed by THE COUNCIL a year ago.

Now the council wants to fill it in, even though it was THE COUNCIL that installed it!

Elderly residents of Laburnum Grove sheltered complex in the Hollingdean area of Brighton were also told by the council that their fountain might have to be filled in.

Mrs Hutson has told The Argus that residents will sit around the fountain if the council tries to disconnect it.

The council said no decisions have been taken and that a report will be produced once risk assessments have been carried out.

The risk assessment will be carried out by someone with a clipboard ticking off all sorts of inane "what if?" scenarios, that have as much chance of occurring as the fountain being a source of ebola.

Oddly though, the council has also said the action only concerns water features in housing schemes and not public fountains.

Why is this odd?

Answer: because Brighton has at least one farking large fountain that, during the summer, spews water droplets (which can carry legionnaires' disease) all over the place.

Why isn't the council doing a risk assessment on its own fountains?

Brighton and Hove Green council, well deserving Prats of The Week!

The Dangers of Uncle Joe's Mint Balls



Nanny has issued an urgent warning to parents in the Wigan area to keep their kids away from a gentleman posing as "Uncle Joe", seemingly his mint balls are radioactive and may cause children to glow in the dark!

Lose Weight - Go Shopping


Nanny is now so concerned about obesity, that the NHS is proposing that firms reward staff with cash or shopping vouchers if they lose weight.

A report published today by the NHS is quoted by the Huffington Post:
"Put bluntly, as the nation's waistline keeps piling on the pounds, we're piling on billions of pounds in future taxes just to pay for preventable illnesses."
Simon Stevens (NHS England CEO) said that the NHS has led to a "blind spot" about the healthcare of employees (because the state and the private sector do not make comfortable bed fellows), and workplace schemes to encourage weight loss have been largely ignored despite success abroad.
"The principal point is that employers in many countries have developed voluntary schemes for their employees whereby for example you actually get cash back based on participation in Weight Watchers or other type schemes."
Suffice to say Nanny doesn't intend to fund any private sector weight loss schemes, rather she (via the NHS) intends to "challenge" firms to bring in such schemes.

As to whether this gets anywhere, who knows?

I am of the view that we are bombarded day and night with adverts for slimming products and lectures from Nanny about our weight. Unless people have been living in a cave they must surely by now be aware of how to eat and exercise sensibly; people are not gaining weight because they don't know how to eat and exercise sensibly, therefore I doubt that more lectures and advice will have much effect.
