Nanny's Green Fingers

Nanny's Green FingersI understand that Nanny's chums in Wychavon Council are a very green bunch of people indeed.

Quite rightly so!

They are striving to save the environment.

As such they make special provision for green garden waste, by charging £16 for 10 green sacks for hedge clippings etc.

Guess what they then do with this waste?

Put them in a landfill, along with all the other crap!

Good policy guys!

  1. Ken, apologies in advance, this is not directly related to the topic in question, but you are upsetting Nanny and her whinging little Cronies, and you are a bad boy.

    Heh heh - excellent. Always amusing when Nanny and her little winged monkeys find another source of those problems that are everyone else's fault but hers.

    Expect 'anti-shrillness' legislation real soon now.

    spiv's URL reference reads like the pot calling the kettle - or is it the other way around?

    Still, nice to see he's off to another cozy little quango job of huge importance.

  4. Grant, I especially love the bit which says "What is the big breakthrough, in terms of politics, on the web in the last few years? It's basically blogs which are, generally speaking, hostile and, generally speaking, basically see their job as every day exposing how venal, stupid, mendacious politicians are."

    Ooohh Ken, you are awful!!!

    spiv,

    Thanks so much for drawing our attention to this article. I would enjoy nothing more than tearing it apart, line by line and falsehood by falsehood, but I don't think Ken's readers want to encounter any 5000 word comments on this board. So, I will have to limit myself to one or two points.

    Mr. Taylor says:

    "The internet is being used as a tool of mobilisation, which is fantastic, but it only adds to the growing, incommensurate nature of the demands being made on government."

    He doesn't think this is fantastic; he thinks it's annoying as hell, and he maintains this same irritated, yet condescending and parental tone, throughout. "You kids have a wonderful toy in the internet, but some of you aren't quite grown up enough to use it constructively" (ie in ways that are flattering to us).

    As to the complaint itself, that voters make "conflicting" and "incommensurate" demands upon politicians, well, correct me if I am wrong, but isn't democracy SUPPOSED to be a system through which societies achieve compromise among conflicting and incommensurate demands. Anything new in this? Did I miss some big change over the past 50 years?

    Finally, the principal contributing factor in the escalating demands (allegedly) placed upon the state is the very eagerness of the state to set itself up as the ultimate and only provider of: income, wealth generation, health care, education, child-rearing, nutritional awareness, proper TV viewing guidelines, standards of how discontent with one's fellow citizens may or may not be expressed . . . (as we all know, I could go on forever). It's rather hypocrytical, isn't it, to set yourself up as both Santa Claus and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, then compain that the kiddies aren't being sufficiently appreciative in their Christmas cards?

    Fred
