‘Rubbish Gestapo’

Posted: March 12, 2011 in Broken Britain

IlieA mother condemned council workers as ‘rubbish Gestapo’ after they threatened her with a criminal record for putting a black sack out next to her full wheelie bin in Chelmsford, Essex. Sally Singh should have battered the rubbish in the bin down to make room like I do.

According to Sally Singh, sounds like a good name for a pop singer, two ‘rude and aggressive’ uniformed staff visited her last month and handed her a £75 fine, threatening her with a court appearance and £2,500 penalty if she failed to pay.

“I got a knock on the door and there were two environmental officers there. They were really rude and aggressive. They said I was fly tipping, leaving rubbish on the pavement. They were talking like I’d dumped a mattress and a fridge outside.”

Mrs Singh said she was caught out because extra rubbish was routinely taken away by bin men at her former home, a few streets away. The 34-year-old nurse said Chelmsford Borough Council also complained she had been putting her wheelie bin out too early for the weekly Friday rubbish collection.

When she admitted she always put it out the night before, as she is busy getting her children ready for school on collection days, they told her to ‘follow the rules’ and put it out on the day, or risk prosecution.

The Weller household bin men come at 06-00hrs if we didn’t have somewhere to store the bins off the pavement our whole street would be out in their pyjamas at five o’clock in the morning moving bins about.

Sally Singh paid the fine, reduced to £50 as they paid quickly, because they feared a criminal conviction could affect their careers.

£50, that rings a bell, oh yes

A Muslim extremist who burned replica poppies on the anniversary of Armistice Day was also fined £50 after being found guilty of a public order offence.

Emdadur Choudhury, 26, a member of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC), was guilty of a “calculated and deliberate” insult to the dead and those who mourn them when he burned two large plastic poppies during a two-minute silence on November 11.

It appears leaving a black sack full of rubbish on the pavement is a more serious crime than insulting our war dead, welcome to the lunatic asylum called Britain!
