It’s Irresistible Force Meets Immovable Object Time Again!

And this time it’s intransigent public sector workers meet lovable cultural scamps!

Royal Mail has suspended postal deliveries to a York travellers’ site, following attacks on postmen by roaming dogs.

Ooooooh! *settles in with big bag of popcorn*

Local councillor Mark Warters said: “If the Royal Mail won’t go on/near the site because of the obvious danger to their operatives, what is the council going to do to allow the use of the adjacent public bridleway by members of the public who have not been able to access in safety for many years, due to out of control dogs?”

He said the local authority had a responsibility to ensure the unhindered passage of the public on rights of way, and added that police had also reported a case of criminal damage to the site office.

Stop council officials going out there too. It’s only right, after all. Got to think of their health and safety, and if that means that the camp lives in (even more) squalor and disrepair, well, can’t make an omelette, and all that!

I await developments with interest.

The council’s head of community safety, Jane Mowat, said that in line with usual procedure and following complaints about dog fouling and straying, neighbourhood enforcement officers had issued ten individual ‘Community Protection Notice’ warnings, and there had been additional patrols and additional contact with officers involved in the site management.

“If the warning is not complied with, and depending on the nature and location of the offences, fines can be issued of between £50 and £100 per offence,” she said.

“We continue to advise animal owners on safe and legal tethering.”

Advise them all you like. But what do you plan to do when that advice is ignored?

    I have given our postman an xmas tip for umpteen years, the cow wouldn’t deliver for a few days because she had to squeeze past a skip in the drive which was no problem unless she wanted to push a wheelchair through, and then the nasty bitch made as much noise delivering the letters when she finally posted them…she knew I was asleep.

    Fuck the Royal Mail….they think they are front line services like the Police/ambulance/fire….roaming dogs yeah maybe, maybe not..

    “But what do you plan to do when that advice is ignored”

    The late Robin Williams once had a great part of his standup routine in which he would say words to the effect of. ” I love the British police. When chasing a criminal they shout ” stop, or I’ll shout Stop again.””

    Methinks it will be something along those lines.

    Just seems we are moving towards a situation of total insanity in public affairs.

    I don’t suppose the destruction of the dogs is even open for consideration.

      Destruction of the owners might be more effective.

    The RM has a simple answer, make them pick up their own mail from local delivery office.

    A Socialist-Marxist inspired Nirvana?

    As for the council, oh dear never mind the rights of the rate paying law abiding public fuck them all, is the subtext of all council services: societal engineers!!

    It has been ordained that, the traveller community under the whatev’ UN charter and directed thus via illegally enforced (HRA rammed through by Bliar) ECHR Aegis, is, deemed a ‘protected minority’ ………..

    Therefore, there will be no fucking chance, of any action, innit.

    ref: Rotherham MDC (or any MDC you could care to mention). Rotherham, where en bloc, the council and all inclusive of all affiliated institutions, its people just turned, are continuing to stick their heads in the sand, cocking a deaf un yet – a blind eye to social disorder, wanton criminal activity and misbehaving minorities.

    “The Taxpayers……….. require………… protection!? Stuff of nonsense!”

    Nah – “the white oppressors” their sensibilities and viewpoints, yer see – they just don’t count mate up in Politically Correct loonyville councilshire.
