Councils Are The Enemies of The People
What was her heinous "crime"?
Nothing more than have her gardener sweep fallen leaves from outside her three bedroom bungalow in Stratford-upon-Avon into the roadside.
As the Telegraph reports, the council took a very dim view of this and threatened to prosecute Mrs Ray for fly tipping. It seems that in Nanny's dictatorship of Stratford-on-Avon sweeping the leaves from her driveway into the tree lined road is illegal.
The fact that Mrs Ray had done this for many years cut no ice, in fact Nanny's chums had even gone to the trouble of photographing her gardener sweeping the leaves into the street.
Oddly enough, since the firestorm of media publicity, Nanny has now backed down (as she always does) and has dropped her threat to prosecute after Mrs Ray promised to stop the sweeping. For good measure she rejected Nanny's offer to supply her with a second green bin, for a £35 charge.
She will now put the leaves into refuse sacks, which a friend will drive to the council waste disposal centre.
A council jobsworth attempted to extricate his masters from the shit, by claiming that the letter threatening Mrs Ray with a fine and jail was addressed to “The Household”, not Mrs Ray herself.
So that's alright then!
Given that leaves constitute fly tipping, and given that the leaves are falling from the trees "owned" by the council, would it not be feasible for the citizens of Stratford-on-Avon to fine the council for fly tipping?
As noted many times before, councils are the enemies of the people!
