Bin Brother - The Rubbish Spies
Dear of dear, Nanny really ought to get out more as clearly she is becoming increasingly eccentric.
It transpires that, in a fit of boredom and extreme nosiness, Nanny's chums in approximately 100 town halls have been conducting secret searches of their residents' rubbish bins.
The aim was not just to check up on what people were throwing away (wrt environmental issues), but also to conduct a clandestine classification exercise into monitoring the "wealth/social status" of the local population.
Doubtless this "wealth classification" is viewed as a means to determine how much extra taxes the state can screw out of us.
In one area householders were divided into categories on the basis of their rubbish, ranging from Level One Wealthy Achiever to Level Five Hard Pressed.
In Kent, a predominantly Tory area, 11 councils allowed took bins from more than 2,000 homes and allowed "officials" working for the Kent Waste Partnership to inspect them.
The waste was dumped into a big pile and sorted into 66 different categories, which included ten types of paper and card, 11 types of plastic, five sorts of glass, six kinds of textiles and a miscellaneous category that included disposable nappies, carpet and sanitary waste.
As said, this is merely an excuse by Nanny to look for ways to tax us more. I suggest that we start to leave "little surprises" in the bins, that skew the statistics (eg the opposite type of waste that you would normally throw out) or leave the bin spies with grubby/smelly hands (eg unbagged dog shit).
