Therefore, without further ado, I am happy to award it to Swindon Borough Council.
Well now let me tell you a story.
Just off Newall Street in Swindon there is a very narrow alleyway, that is far too narrow for cars to pass through.
Some weeks ago, for reasons that were never clearly explained, Swindon Borough Council (or rather one of its contractors) painted double yellow lines on both sides of the alleyway (leaving a gap of 13 inches between the lines).
Suffice to say, no one was impressed and the council at the time said that the lines were a "temporary measure" and would in time burnt off.
Anyhoo, it now transpires that instead of burning them off the council has had them painted black.
Why not just save time and money and leave them there?
Ahah Nanny's chums from the council have an answer.
As per the BBC, a council spokesman said that they had been removed as the council wanted drivers to know that double yellow lines "are there for good reason and are capable of being enforced".
"These particular lines didn't get close to meeting either criteria.He added that the contractor had agreed to meet the cost and the council would "not be paying for the painting of the lines or for their removal".
The lines will be burnt off, but in the meantime they have been painted over as a temporary measure."
What a remarkable waste of time and money (don't be deceived, somehow or other the cost of this will end up being charged to the local taxpayer).
