Nanny's concern for the environment, in theory, is highly laudable.
We have but one planet, and to "crap on our own doorstep" is neither pleasant nor wise for our future health and well being.
However, in life, there are no black and white issues merely shades of grey. These grey realities require sensible human beings to exercise commonsense and sound judgement, before imposing petty rules and regulations.
It is a well recognised trait of Nanny that she possesses neither commonsense, nor sound judgement. She sees the world in black and white, and seeks to impose her petty rules and regulations irrespective of reality.
This sad reality was vividly brought home to Lenny Woodward, a 95 year old former Desert Rat who now resides in Norwich, the other day.
He placed a ketchup bottle and coffee jar in the wrong bin.
Norwich council refused to collect his rubbish.
Residents of Norwich, like many towns across Nanny's Britain, have to suffer under the yoke of rigid rules wrt refuse disposal; they have a blue wheelie bin for cans and cardboard, a green box for glass and a black bin for other waste.
Mr Woodward made the mistake of putting the ketchup bottle and a coffee jar in the blue bin, when they should have gone in the green box.
A crime against the state!...in Nanny's eyes anyway.
When Nanny's binmen inspected the blue bin (doesn't this sound rather like they are employed as council spies?), they refused to empty it and attached a tag to it warning him not to break the rules again.
Mr Woodward's daughter rang Norwich City Council to explain that he made a mistake based on uncertainty about the system, rather than evil malice. Unfortunately the council have adopted that well known excuse used by petty officials from earlier times:
"Rules have to be obeyed".
Errmm...if the rules are ridiculous, no they don't!
You know folks, when these scumbags in local councils start to talk to people like that there is only one course of action left; remind them very forcibly who is the master and who is the servant.
Mr Woodward said:
"I'm very sorry it happened. It's just I'm confused. I don't know which bin is which so I put the wrong things in the wrong bin.
They could have knocked on my door and spoken to me about it instead of putting a note on the bin saying they would not empty it.
It all seems very childish. I've never broken the law before. I haven't even had a parking fine or speeding ticket."
Mr Woodward comes from a generation who fought against oppression and tyranny being imposed by tinpot corporals, that generation was brought up to respect genuine authority and the rule of law.
Regrettably, Nanny and her acolytes in local councils have destroyed people's respect for the rule of law and for authority. That is why social order is breaking down.
