People who fail to keep their front gardens tidy face hundreds of pounds in fines and clean-up charges…What?!?
… while those who shop them will be rewarded with discount shopping vouchers.Double what?!?!
Wait, Newham. Isn’t that…?
Ah. Of course:
Olympic host borough Newham is so concerned about the bad impression that messy gardens full of rubbish will have on the thousands of visitors who will flock to the area next summer that it has drawn up an action plan.Well, let’s hope that the bylaw drafters of ancient Newham were foresighted enough to write onto the local statute books some law by which the council can compel people to clean up their front gardens.
Or they are going to be very, very busy fighting lawsuits.
"As the borough prepares for the Olympic Games, where thousands of people will be welcomed to Newham, the borough wants to ensure that it gives a good impression, which is not mired by any rubbish visitors might see."I think the word your semi-literate spokesman was grasping for was ‘marred’, not ‘mired’…
‘Mired’ is what you are likely to become if you attempt to go down this route. In red-tape, regulations and angry court actions.
