Council Stupidity…!!!

October 17, 2008
This is the most outlandish thing I have ever read…council jobs-worths sending a letter to a retired civil-servant accusing him of ‘encroaching on its property’…!!!  What has this old man done…?  Stolen council-owned land and fenced it off…?  Nothing of the sort!  All he has been doing is tending to the grass verge in fron of his house by weeding and raking, and generally keeping it tidy. 
Surely he should be commended for his community spirit, not threatened for it!!  When he queried the letter, he was told that it was too tidy and people might not feel they could walk on it…what utter tosh!!
All too often, these days, we read of councils gone mad…threatening people for positive, public spirited things, or stupid, piddling things….why?  They are making themselves look mean, stupid, and pathetic…and who will want to vote in a pathetic council…?!  I certainly won’t!!!

    what also beggars belief Sandi is these peoples jobs are funded via the taxpayer which in turn is supposed to benefit the populus. As you say, buerocracy gone mad. The word meglomania springs to mind. xxx P.s Thanks very much for your comment today. Without you It wouldn\’t have been possible to write. I too laughed in the writing of it. Thank you so much for the happy memories. Have a good weekend, you deserve it. xxx
