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?
