Those pokenoses at the town hall are up to something big. The Accrington Observer (OK, I know its hardly the world’s most widely read newspaper) revealed this week that the buggers are bugging our bins.
The aim of this is to check that everybody is recycling properly and fine those who are not.
Recycling is a commendable notion and would be more commendable but for the fact that we are so short of the kit needed to make useful stuff out of our household rubbish that most of what’s collected for recycling goes straight in a landfill anyway, but using the environmental crisis as an excuse to spy on us is well out of order.
Little Nicky will keep you posted on developments.
