Dick Headed Useless Knobheads
Normally I would consider awarding my prestigious "Prats of The Week" Award in a case like this. However, having re read it I can only conclude that Broxbourne council has gone way beyond the "prat" stage.
Stan and Jean Chatterton, of Hoddesdon, Herts, have regularly cleaned up fallen crab apples from the grass verge outside their home. They do this in order to prevent them going rotten and becoming a hazard.
Unfortunately, they have reckoned without the interfering jackboot of the local council.
Why do we put up with these useless bodies?
What good do they actually do?
Anyhoo, Broxbourne council have issued an edict to Mr and Mrs Chatterton telling them to stop cleaning up the verge; because if they kept the area tidy themselves, the local authority's cleaning contractors would not know how often to cut the grass.
No, I don't understand that either!
Mrs Chatterton said:
"We have been told off for keeping it tidy.
I just don't understand it."
Broxbourne council's edict states:
"Due to the maintenance being carried out by yourself,
we are unable to monitor the frequency
we need to cut the area.
We therefore ask if you would refrain
from maintaining this land from now on."
As Mr Chatterton says, the council can simply look at the grass elsewhere to see when they need to cut it.
Clearly the reason stated by the council is utter knobheaded bollocks. The real reason is probably that the Chattertons may now need public liability insurance to carry on maintaining the verge, and the council are too shit scared to admit this.
Useless dick headed knobheads!
Drop the council a note and tell them I said hi: Knobheads.
