Licensed To Ker Farking ChingNanny never misses a trick to fill her coffers by screwing her long suffering and hard working citizens out of ever more of their hard earned income.

Who could blame her?

The country is £4.8 Trillion in debt, and there is no way she intends to starve!

Anyhoo, Nanny's local councils have come up with another wheeze to keep themselves in the luxury to which they have become accustomed. This time they have hit upon the idea of using legislation (the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005) to force people who hand out leaflets in the street to buy licences.

Clever eh?

Now, I know that corporations who hire people to hand out gazillions of leaflets advertising their unwanted products can be deemed to be a nuisance (given that most of these leaflets are thrown into the bin). However, the legislation will also apply to anyone who hands out leaflets, even those who are looking for their lost cat.

Let us not forget that the origins of the "free" press (a scourge of governments throughout the ages) were the Pamphleteers.

Today the modern "Pamphleteers" are the small-scale organisations eg; Women's Institutes, comedy clubs, student societies and political campaigners. These organisations (eg if operating in Basildon) are forced to pay £350 to hand out leaflets on a Saturday, those who operate in Wolverhampton are being charged £262 per distributor.

Approximately 45 local authorities in England now insist that people have to buy a licence to hand out leaflets.

The councils claim that this is a litter related issue.

Errmmm..if people throw the leaflets on the street then surely it is for them to be fined, not the pamphleteer?

The reality in fact is that it is a great way to make money, and to restrict the freedom of speech of their hard pressed citizens.

Ker Farking Ching!

    I hope these Councils will employ people to hand out leaflets explaining the new 'law'.

    Presumably this also includes the homeless selling the "Big Issue"? The money they earn is supposed to help them become independent, not line the pockets of the Town Hall parasites.

    We must, in effect, be the most taxed people anywhere on this Earth.
    Nanny wants her cut on everything. We are even taxed on a tax....The fuel duty attracts VAT.

    I bet Nanny is working ever so hard to find a way to silence the web and tax it.

    I thought the role of local councils was to provide local public services, and information for local people, and in so doing, were accountable to their council tax payers? It appears that, in many cases, their prime function now seems to be to line the pockets of executives and provide perks and jollies for them. If they are so concerned about litter, perhaps they might consider looking closer to home, and instruct their bin men to pick up litter which they drop from people's bins --- with impunity, it would appear, no fear of a spot fine from some hi-viz vested jobsworth for them! Clearly one rule for council employees, another one completely for the riff-raff er, sorry, council tax payers in the area!
