Nanny Bans Daffodils

Spring has sprung, the trees are budding, the sap is rising and the daffodils are growing in all parts of the septic isle, aside from Tendring that is.

For why?

Just ask Robert Blyth, who owns a farm in Ardleigh.

Mr Blyth has been required by Nanny's chums from Tendring District council to submit a seven-page document for permission to plant "a seasonal display of flowers" (daffodils) at his farm.

This being a council that he is dealing with, he will have to wait weeks before a decisions is made; by then the flowers will have withered and died.

Were he to go ahead and allow the daffodils to bloom without asking for permission, the council would have fined him £2,500.

Ker Farking Ching!

(Actually Nanny already has form with daffodils, in 2005 Strood civic centre banned them for being "politically biased").

Anyhoo, Tendring District Council claim that the 13,000 bulb display (which spells out the name of the farm's weekly boot sale) is an advertisement, and therefore needs to be approved.

That is a bit rich, given that the council have such a display showing the council logo on Clacton seafront!

So what happens if the permission is refused?

The plants will have died by then anyway!

Hypocritical, idiotic jobsworths!

Councils are the enemies of the people!

    There was another case, involving flowers, at Weymouth, where a couple who have been beautifying the station with floral displays for the last ten years have recently been banned from doing so by a new manager on elf'n'safety grounds. These people do hate to see anyone having the remotest degree of enjoyment, don't they? Why, oh why, cannot we turn around to these prod-noses and tell them where to go?

    Glad to report that the flower-bed around the trees behind the block of flats near me is bursting into life once again with clouds of golden daffodils planted by the local residents -- and the Housing Association that owns the flats is a happy with it as I am. Let's hear it for Richmond Housing Partnership!
