I am, I must admit, no fan of wasps; personally speaking I would exterminate all wasps on sight.
Anyhoo, that minor genocidal tendency apart, I was somewhat ungemused to see that Nanny's chums from Islington Council decreed that a 25 year old 30ft pear tree (valued at £10K) had to be cut down.
On the the grounds of health and safety.
What health and safety issue was that then?
One resident complained that it attracted insects!
Councillor Richard Greening defended the treeocide, as per the Telegraph:
"The residents live there and if they say they have seen wasps there is no reason to doubt them.On that basis all shrubs, flowers and trees must be exterminated by Islington Council, if its residents are to lead risk free lives.
The risk is so high for people with allergies that on this occasion it was worth going against tree officers."
Councils are the enemies of the people, trees and wasps!
