Nanny Bans Daffodils
Just ask Robert Blyth, who owns a farm in Ardleigh.
Mr Blyth has been required by Nanny's chums from Tendring District council to submit a seven-page document for permission to plant "a seasonal display of flowers" (daffodils) at his farm.
This being a council that he is dealing with, he will have to wait weeks before a decisions is made; by then the flowers will have withered and died.
Were he to go ahead and allow the daffodils to bloom without asking for permission, the council would have fined him £2,500.
Ker Farking Ching!
(Actually Nanny already has form with daffodils, in 2005 Strood civic centre banned them for being "politically biased").
Anyhoo, Tendring District Council claim that the 13,000 bulb display (which spells out the name of the farm's weekly boot sale) is an advertisement, and therefore needs to be approved.
That is a bit rich, given that the council have such a display showing the council logo on Clacton seafront!
So what happens if the permission is refused?
The plants will have died by then anyway!
Hypocritical, idiotic jobsworths!
Councils are the enemies of the people!
