Congratulations to Nanny's chums on Fylde Borough Council, who certainly know how to spend their council tax payers' money wisely.
The "good old boys" on the council have been getting a bit of a bee in their collective bonnets recently about kite flying on the beaches. Many a kite flier goes to Fylde as, by all accounts, the conditions there are ideal for flying kites.
Unfortunately, this being Nanny Britain, the council has got a bit nervous about this activity; there was a minor accident involving a stunt kite and a person walking a dog on the beach, the three (kite, walker and dog) became entangled. The council has, of course, now banned the flying of kites.
However, Nanny is never happy with half measures, she has also decided to conduct a study into the flying of kites to see if it is dangerous. As such Fylde Council will spend £15K of taxpayers' money on this study.
They will hire a team, yes a team, of experts to conduct the investigation.
Nanny's council safety boss, Sue Fazackerley, has promised that the experts would be working there "for as long as it takes".
Value for money, by anyone's standards!
Feel free to tell Fylde Borough Council what you think of their use of taxpayers' money, by writing to them at this address firstname.lastname@example.org. They promise a response within 1 working day!
