Prats of The Week - York Council

My golly gosh, 'tis a Monday morning and therefore time once again to award my prestigious, and internationally renowned, "Prats of The Week" Award.

This week it goes to York council, and the jobsworths in their "fence erection" (can I say "erection"?) department.

New fencing (costing £6K) was erected on playing fields in Heworth.

However, there was one tiny glitch.

Using the picture above, from the BBC website, can you spot what the glitch was children?

Yes, that's right, the people erecting the fencing followed plans to the letter and put the fencing up through the middle of some football goalposts.

York council and related jobsworths, well deserving Prats of The Week!

    Ahh, but procedure was followed and all the boxes ticked. A fine example of the inability to use common sense.

  2. Only a council would be daft enough to do such a thing; unless of course, you know different......

    Common Sense you say, well I know of Liverpool City Council's propensity to paint the outside of their housing properties in the winter. This includes painting over any ice or snow on windowsills. It makes sense don't it????

    The installation of the fence is not only stupid but sinister. According to the news piece it's a new prison compound - sorry, segregated play area for the under 8's. No doubt so mothers can make sure that non of those paedophiles (aka men) can molest their little darlings. The moron contractors have been told to rectify the situation - no doubt complete removal of the goalposts. Can't have paedos playing football next to a kiddie play area, can we? I noticed shrubbery and trees in the pic - they'll have to come down naturally. Well known concealment for paedos. Back in 1958 when I was eight the notion of a fenced-off playing area would have been laughed out of court. Please excuse me while I go away and gibber in the corner.

    In fairness, the football pitch is being relocated too. Of course why both jobs could not be done on the same day to avoid looking like complete t£2s...
