Prats of The Week - Essex County Council

Prats of The WeekOoh err Missus, it has been a wee while since I have awarded anyone my prestigious and internationally renowned "Prats of The Week" Award.

Therefore, without any further delay, I am please to announce that it goes this week to Esex County Council.

For why?

Just ask Ron Warrick, a lollipop man who plies his trade outside St Mary's Primary School in Shenfield.

Sadly for Mr Warrick, since the council spent £30K on safety improvements at the junction he has had to hang up his lollipop.

For why?

The council deem it unsafe for him to step into the road.

He is now paid to press the button at the pedestrian crossing, and has to wait on the pavement while the kids brave the road themselves!

Chris Beazley, the head teacher at the school, has even been instructed by the council to tell parents that Mr Warrick will be giving lessons to parents in how to cross the road.

For why?

The council are of the view that the parents are crossing "incorrectly"!

  1. How daft....What will happen next week; lessons on how to wipe your own backside?

    Essex Council; well deserving award winners!!

    It struck me that had I been put in such a position by the council I would have resigned the post but, I then thought to myself, perhaps that is what they want.

    Tonk: I'd have been very tempted to ram my stop sign up the a**e of the jobsworth who came up with this idea!
    Does it never occur to these idiots that parents have lived long enough to be parents because they are perfectly aware how to cross roads correctly?
    I wonder if the real reason in banning Mr Warrick from doing his job is so the council can say that his services are no longer needed, so they can dispense with him?

    Can we assume that the Council will be appointing a "Dynamic Risk assessor" to stand beside Mr Warwick, and tell him when it is 'correct' to press his button.

    You sir are a paranoid loon of the highest order!

  5. and when he gets RSI from repeated button pushing? Who pays the compensation?
