A friend of mine from the village has an 80 year old mother.
A grand old lady from a good family.
Last week she received a letter from 'the authorities'.
This letter warned her against feeding birds in her garden due to the threat of vermin.
The next step, apparently, an ASBO.
The particular small village has oodles of open space, space to have wildlife and all the things that we don't see in town.
That this lady of previous good character should in her 80s be threatened with a potential jail term, on the basis of an anonymous letter, beggars belief.
Last week her son was refused entry onto a local bus.
Last week her grandchildren were left standing in the rain when a local driver refused to pick them up.
What has happened to this family to drive them into the land of the Jukes and the Kallikaks?.
Could it be that one of the family members is foremost in the fight to uncover local Council 'sharp practise'.?
More to follow, I am sure.
