Smoke Free Smoke - Nanny Backs Down - Maybe

Last week I wrote about the Uber Prats from Haringey council banning London's oldest working smokehouse (Walter Purkis & Sons) from using smoke to smoke fish.

Unsurprisingly, a veritable firestorm of anger was unleashed upon the cretins within the council.
Can you guess what happened next children?

Yes, that's right, Nanny (as she always does when she is exposed as being a cretin) backed down.

London24 reports that Walter Purkis & Sons has been allowed to smoke fish again.

Cllr Nilgun Canver, cabinet member for the environment, said:
We recognise the unique nature of this family business and its importance to the local community, and we are really keen to help find a solution in the best interests of everyone involved. 

We have been working closely with Mr Purkis to help him find a way to reopen the smokehouse while also reducing the impact on neighbours. It has now been agreed that Mr Purkis will reopen the smokehouse and we will support Mr Purkis over the coming months to help him upgrade the smokehouse equipment.”
However, rather wisely, Mr Purkis is not yet convinced by their promises.
We will be happy if it does come out right but we are a little worried in case it is a temporary thing until things have calmed down.”
Nanny can never be trusted, and must be watched closely at all times.

What she takes with the one hand, she receives with the other.

    What's the betting "The Solution" will cost him a fortune and will have to allow some hi-viz clad idiot from Nanny to come in and inspect it from time to time?

    John Redwood is writing about Nanny on his blog today.

  2. "we are really keen to help find a solution"

    Do they not see that they caused the problem? There was one complaint. By indulging it they started this mess in the first place.

    The fish guy does not need a solution, he needs to be left alone.
