Therefore, without any further delay, I am please to announce that it goes this week to Esex County Council.
Just ask Ron Warrick, a lollipop man who plies his trade outside St Mary's Primary School in Shenfield.
Sadly for Mr Warrick, since the council spent £30K on safety improvements at the junction he has had to hang up his lollipop.
The council deem it unsafe for him to step into the road.
He is now paid to press the button at the pedestrian crossing, and has to wait on the pavement while the kids brave the road themselves!
Chris Beazley, the head teacher at the school, has even been instructed by the council to tell parents that Mr Warrick will be giving lessons to parents in how to cross the road.
The council are of the view that the parents are crossing "incorrectly"!
Essex County Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
