Easing of draconian measures

Comment 9th July 2010

I've been saving clippings from newspapers for many years now and two stories which appaled me were 1) Some pensioners found grafitti on a wall, and when they reported it to the local council the council told them to clean it off or face a £1000 fine. This was ridiculous. Local councils shouldn't have the power to do this.

If you want you can contact me and I will find the stories so that you can cross-check them.

Why does this matter?

The second story was about a baby in a pram who dropped a piece of paper from a pram. The police took the baby's details. The police should never have the power to do such a thing.
