Bracknell Forest Council highways team

Can you imagine the thought process here?  

I've just replaced a damaged traffic light, and I've got the old twisted sharp edged one to dispose of.  Shall I throw it on the truck and take it back to be safely binned or recycled?  Nah, I'll just throw it on the verge at the side of the road next to two schools, and walk away.  

Isn't it nice to know we've got such thoughtful folks working at the council?!

Lights are on, no-one is home

Spotted at the junction between London Road and Swinley Road, near the Forresters Pub.

Men at work, or not - part 2

It only gets worse!  Today I noticed another SITA bin lorry parked up on double yellow lines, running, and with no-one in it.  But joy of joys, along comes a 'civil enforcement officer' who looks like he's all tooled up to do the right thing and issue a ticket.

Inevitably, with the scum at the council looking after their mates at Sita, he was pretty reluctant to get his ticket book out and start writing... See the video below...

Update - I've asked the Council and Sita to comment on this - their response will be posted here!

Update 2, 29th November - no response from either yet, but the SITA staff have been busy browsing ;-)

Another two tier judiciary example...

So I see the chairman of the Cons,  Grant Shapps, set up a company in 2005 that sells software to 'auto blog' - that is, to steal information from others, and post it automatically on blogs as though the blog owner had written it.  Plagiarism, breaking copyright laws and fraud, to you and I.  Even worse, the Met Police consider it fraud - is he quaking in his boots?

If it was you or I downloading films or music (same offence of breach of copyright), we'd be prosecuted.  Not our man Grant though - evidently it's not what you know or what you do, it's who you know and what they'll do to get you off the hook that counts!  Scum, all of them :-)
