'A monumental waste of money'

'A monumental waste of money': Judge's verdict on council who took firm to court for giving away CARDBOARD BOX (and it cost taxpayer £15k)

When company boss Linda Bracey gave away spare cardboard boxes to a passer-by, it didn’t seem like a situation to warrant the attentions of a court.

But her local council took a different view, prosecuting her in a case branded by a judge as a ‘monumental waste of public time and money’.

The authority ran up legal bills of £15,000 after accusing Mrs Bracey of ‘illegally disposing of business waste’ when she handed over the boxes following a request from a member of the public.

Councillor Clyde Loakes, Waltham Forest Council Cabinet Member for Environment, described the outcome of the case as 'incredibly disappointing'

If the public spending cuts only achieve one thing, lets hope it's putting useless tw*ts like this out of a job.

Another classic example of power without responsability

Man, I have gone to the local supermarket to get some free boxes before. Guess I shouldn't have accepted "illegal disposal of business waste"! :wacko:

Doesn't it make your blood boil when you read articles like this , a man drunk with power , but there could've been some personal animosity between the company boss and the councillor that went back years and will probably continue in to the future .

They should bring back Pillory Stocks where idiots like this one can be locked into for the public to throw rotten tomatoes at .
