Islington Council In The Shit

It comes as no surprise to me, and doubtless no surprise to my loyal readers, to see another council swathing itself in shit (quite literally this time).

Step forward Islington council, which has been forced to disband its 22 man "dog squad" (the largest in the country).

What did the dog squad do?

In theory it was meant to fine people for allowing their dogs to befoul the pavements etc.

The cost of said squad, according to the Taxpayers' Alliance, was £240K in a three month period from May 2012. Unfortunately the number of fines issued by the squad during 2012/13 was 36 (10 less than the previous year sans squad).

The council claims that the scheme has been ‘money well spent’ and ‘an enormous success in changing people’s behaviour’.

They would say that, wouldn't they?

    So, in effect, this council has to disband a group of extra tax collectors then; shame.

    I suppose in the crazy world of Nanny spin, it could be argued that they have done their job in so far as there may be less dogs fouling the pavement however, we all know that it was never about stopping fouling, it was about raising money; kerching. It brings a new meaning to the phrase....Where there's (dog) muck, there's brass.....Only now it appears, there isn't.

    As I've said before.....When the criminal justice system is used as little more than an extension to HMRC, it brings the CJS into disrepute.

    I shall refrain from making any comment about them being barking mad!
