I must admit if these are the worst cases of anti social behavior and littering then things are not so bad.
It’s the easy targets all the time, when are they starting on the real problems? After the women realized her mistake of cleaning up after the wrong dog, she cleaned up hers but still got fined. No flexibility at all.
It seems to be all about giving numerical targets to those issuing the tickets so they have less flexibility to use common sense. If they must have targets perhaps it should be 1 point for each ticket and minus 5 points for those overturned on appeal.
I like many people was disgusted about the treatment handed out to these two people by some overbearing, jumped-up, pea-brained, official numpty "jobsworth" from the local council.
Now that New Labour and Gordon Clueless who had passed at least 2000 pieces of anti-people legislation have gone, Prime Minister Cameron should now set about removing all such anti-people legislation to stop local and county councils deliberately and exclusively targetting people with disabilities because they're easy prey.
I'd start with the Human Rights Act myself (a.k.a.The Criminals Friend Act) and work backwards through local and county legislation and have it removed from the Statute Book and with it most of the useless jobsworth numpties and their peurile rule-books.
