Oh dear, Nanny's bin police are at it again!
Diana Angel, of Colchester Essex, recently attempted to dispose of some rubbish recently and was concerned to find that her dustbin men had ripped open her two plastic sacks and deemed the contents unsuitable for waste disposal.
What was the contents?
Spent nuclear fuel rods?
Ten tonnes of dog excrement?
The "disallowed" waste was in fact one plastic plant pot, and a small plastic broom handle.
For why did the bin police refuse to accept this waste?
Why, isn't obvious dear readers?
The bin police deemed that waste to too 'dangerous'!
When Mrs Angel, who has had three hip replacement operations, called her local council to report the problem she was told that she would have to take the items to a tip or pay £30 to have them collected.
Tim Young, councillor responsible for waste (there's a joke in there somewhere folks begging to come out!), said that the bin police are being encouraged to check bags where items are sticking out, to reduce the risk of health and safety hazards and to increase recycling rates.
He said, seemingly with a straight face:
"The items were not considered suitable for the normal weekly collection, they were considered to be a hazard.
It might have been dangerous for the refuse collectors to take it away.
If she had broken it up and wrapped it in newspaper they may may have taken it away."
Could not the bin police have broken the stuff up themselves?
Who actually believes that our councils, and those that work for them, have any intention of serving anyone other than themselves and their own self interests?
We live in a country where Nanny encourages her staff to rip us off at every opportunity.
