Prats of The Week - Wiltshire Council
What better time to award my prestigious, and internationally renowned, Prats of The Week Award?
This week, courtesy of a recommendation from a loyal reader, it goes to Wiltshire Council (aka to the locals as the "lavatory council").
Just read the following about the council's rules wrt our old "friend" hi vis jackets, and who should wear them.
A Wiltshire council admin employee had been assigned to a day's ride with the local dustbin men, presumably to observe life on the front line etc.
I understand that the lady in question was ordered to wear hi vis for her day out. Given that the binmen all wear them, this may not seem terribly surprising. However, even though she was meant to observe/experience a day in the life of the binmen she was not allowed to leave the cab at all during the day (due to health and safety etc etc).
Therefore, given that she was safely sitting inside the cab all day (not learning anything about what the binmen actually do) I have to ask why the hell was she required to wear a hi vis jacket?
