Nanny Bans Fag Ash

Nanny Bans Fag AshNanny really does seem to have an obsession with smoking, the way that she goes on about it anyone would think that it was bad for you.

Anyhoo, not content with obsessing about the actual smoke produced by a fag, she has now turned her beady little eyes towards the end product of the "deadly weed", that of the ash itself.

Alan Joyce of Lower Parkstone, Poole, got on the wrong end of Nanny in July when he was having a fag in his car.

One of Nanny's ever present spies, ie a council worker, saw him flick some fag ash onto the pavement whilst driving along Sandbanks Road.

Nice to know that council workers throughout the land are now employed as spies by Nanny, isn't it?

Given Nanny's zero tolerance of crime (as we all know muggings, assaults and robberies are now non existent in Britain), Nanny issued Mr Joyce with a £75 fine.

Councillor Don Collier, when asked about this over reaction, said rather robotically:

"The people of Poole won't tolerate littering."

Poole operates a vigilant fixed penalty notice scheme to discover people who are littering our town.
"

I take it then that fag ash remains clearly visible once it has been "flicked" onto a pavement, and that there is no other worse form of litter on the streets of Poole?

    "The people of Poole won't tolerate littering."

    Hmm... I wonder how many actual residents of Poole were even consulted.

    Pff, I would demand my day in court and ask to see the evidence before paying up.

  3. Another brainwashed fool who meekly pays up when ordered to, i would go to court and demand to see the evidence,and if we all wasted massive amounts of court time these councils would soon be brought to book.further councils have no right to frame laws,they are there to manage the districts affairs,but if you keep paying , they will keep making new ones.

  5. Loath as I am to give nanny suggestions, why haven't they banned smoking while driving yet? or at least introduced some sort of hands free kit....

  6. "Ban smoking while driving" I know this is said in jet but unfortunately in this Stalinist State of Merrie England even now some whizz kid in Whitehall is drafting out the necessary law.
    This will be introduced in the Queen's Speech (How does she put up with these idiots?) as a necessary measure to endure continuing health or perhaps to stop inocent bystanders getting ash in their eyes.

    Seems to me the next step is illegal farting:

    Farting without due care and attention
    Reckless farting
    Farting in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace.

    The effect on the sales of Heinz Beans could be catastrophic!
