Commiserations to the good ladies of Sawbridgeworth Evening Women's Institute, who recently fell foul of East Hertfordshire Council.
They were handing out flyers for a charity art exhibition.
One of Nanny's "litter wardens" deemed these to be litter, and promptly threatened them with a £80 fine.
Ker Farking Ching!
Seemingly, the warden was of the view it was illegal to hand these flyers out.
Funny that, I thought it was up to the police and courts to decide as to what was legal/illegal.
However, the ladies were in luck for the warden told them they would escape a fine as the warden was in a "good mood".
So, if you are doing something "illegal", if Nanny's enforcer is in a good mood then it is OK?
However, the WI must now obtain a licence from the council to legally hand fliers to passers-by.
Oh, and I should not have called the enforcer a "litter warden". Apparently, the official title is "Area Environmental Inspectors".
A very large title, doubtless giving the individuals an inflated sense of their own importance (or is it impotence?).
