The Bin Police - Dawn Raids
Be warned Nanny's obsession with our waste products knows no bounds, as residents of Chorley Lancashire are finding out to their cost.
Lancashire County Council are sending teams of 'wheelie bin police' out in the wee small hours to audit residents' rubbish, at a cost of £60K per annum.
The men in "high vis" clothing appear in a white council van at around 5:30am, and target preselected households by requisitioning the rubbish in the bins before the binmen collect it.
Oh if only I, and the rest of the country, could really believe that this was a useful exercise designed to improve our lives. The reality, as we all know, is that it is a ploy used by the council to find more ways to raise taxes.
The waste, no matter how well it is sorted and classified, all ends up in a land fill in India anyway. A cynic would argue that the "green agenda" pursued by local councils is a con trick designed to raise taxes.
