Prats of The Week - Colchester Borough Council/Essex Police

Prats of The WeekThis week seems to be a week for "Prats", therefore I am happy to announce yet another "Prats of The Week" Award.

This award goes to Colchester Borough Council and Essex police.

For why?

Just ask Dominic Payne of Colchester.

Mr Payne recently claimed that the council and police have wasted taxpayer's money investigating the noise of mating frogs in his garden. He said that he was recently visited by environmental health officers from Colchester Borough Council, who said they had been listening to the mating frogs to get a decibel noise reading.

After that two police officers turned up to investigate the frogs. Seemingly they went round his garden trying to photograph the frogs.

The Marsh frogs, for that is what they are, are classified as a non native species and in theory can be rounded up and "disposed of"...whatever that means.

Colchester Council claim that they have a statutory duty to investigate complaints about noise nuisance. Once they had identified that the noise came from non native frogs they were obliged, so they say, to tell the police.

What a waste of time and money!

Colchester Borough Council/Essex Police, well deserving Prats of The Week.

  1. non-native eh? Surely that means they're immigrants and should therefore receive maximum benefits and purpose-built accomodation?!

  2. Who the fuck would even thing of complaining to the council about frogs making a noise?

  3. I agree with Gary; Wankers indeed.

    It just shows how far this once great nation of ours that, not so long ago, ran the world;the sun never sets on the Union Jack and all that....Now we seem to want the council to wipe our arses for us....Ring the council to complain about wild animals making a noise?....What type of mentality would do that?
    It is like people that move to the country and complain there are no street lights or take action, via the council, to try to stop Farmer Gile's Cock crowing at the break of dawn.

    I feel sad for this nation of ours and I'm glad I won't be around for too much longer to see it's final demise.
    What on Earth do Plod think they're doing to even send someone. or two plods, to investigate.....Anyway, I expect by the time the Rozzers had turned up, the frogs had hopped it....Yeah I know; sorry!!


    Just laugh at Hi=Viz.

    All the posts this week are about councils... tsssssk.

    By the way, I am now a celebrity in my village !

    I am the only person living amongst the six thousand or so of us who has been confirmed to have opened the expensive looking council newspaper (wrapped in a nice, also expensive looking, polythene bag for some reason).

    I scrunched it up, cleaned my car windscreen with it, and then I binned it.

    The old bill fit for videoing people's dogs taking a dump, issuing on the spot fines for people taking a piss in a back alley and catching frogs shagging. No wonder the real crims are having a field day out there.

    Now we know why it is, if someone has the misfortune to suffer violence, be mugged, burgled, suffer vandalism or any other 'real' crime, the response from the rossers is that they are "too busy" to investigate. They are indeed "too busy" --- too busy with this sort of nonsense.
    And the council are just as bad, for indulging the kind of individual(s) who would ring to complain about frogs mating in the first place.
    Smithy: another use for this prestigious document would be in your bathroom, which would save you money too!

    I hope the local Police have better luck with the 'disposal' than these coppers

    “Police shot cow 12 times, firearm blunders figures reveal - A constable and an acting sergeant blasted the beast eight times with a rifle and four times with a shotgun in what police called a ‘humane destruction’ on a school playing field.
    They said it was hard to hit the target because of ‘a combination of wind speed, distance and type of gun used’.

    @Tonk - I think the correct expression is "Couldn't hit a barn - even when firing from inside"

    The question is posed that, if they cannot humanely kill a creature the size of a cow, ought they to be trusted with firearms at all?

    Perhaps they should have tazered the bull in the first place, so it's an easier target.
    Then they could get on to tazering frogs.
