The Dangers of Over Pruning

My commiserations to Karen Gaynor of Rotherham, who fell foul of her local council and ended up spending six hours in a police cell, seven months on bail and had to stand trial.

Her crime?

Over pruning an overhanging conifer!

The Telegraph reports that Mrs Gaynor was detained, charged with criminal damage and spent seven months on bail after prosecutors decided she had cut the conifer back too much, in a boundary dispute with her neighbour.

Fortunately Rotherham Magistrates’ Court has some brains, and took just 15 minutes to clear her of the charges after instead deciding she had acted with good intentions.

Ms Gaynor said she had asked for council advice about how to prune back the tree, which reached into her garden, but an officer had refused to show her.
How bizarre!

    Another prime example of the "excellent services" provided by local authority jobsworths! Correct me if I'm mistaken, but wasn't Rotherham a town where systematic grooming of young girls for sex, followed by sexual abuse on a large scale took place? A pity those who so enthusiastically persecuted Mrs Gaynor weren't so energetic in investigating real criminal activity! Or is Rotherham governed so well that there is no real crime? No, I didn't think so!

  2. 10 years ago we would have thought this was satire. Now, we don't know where satire ends and this creepy new world begins.
