If You've Ever Wondered...

...if we are employing too many local council officials, wonder no more. We obviously are:
Killjoy council chiefs have sparked fury among hairdressers after clamping down on them giving mulled wine to customers in the run-up to Christmas.

Local authority bosses are sending spies to check whether salons are handing out the festive treat and warning owners they face six months in jail and a £20,000 fine if caught.
6 months in jail and a £20,000 fine? For giving away (not selling) mulled wine to customers?

I bet that's a lot more than this waste of oxygen will get, if he is ever actually caught...

The saddest bastard in all this is the arse that wrote the complaint letter.

It is THEM that should be the FIRST to swing from the lamp posts.

Indeed. A lot of people are starting to realise what they are, now...


"The saddest bastard in all this is the arse that wrote the complaint letter."

These people have always been with us. Never before have they had the State-sanctioned power to ruin lives, though.

Jesus Mulled Christmas. Does that mean the hairdresser who did the up-do for my wedding will be taken out behind her establishment and beaten with sticks because she gave me champers on my wedding day, too?

I doubt it - all the cops will be tied up. At the House of Commons, no doubt...
