The list is also said to include the introduction of respect "sheriffs" in each community and allowing councils to seize the private homes of people found guilty of serious anti-social behaviour offences."
I can't believe the last bit - that is the sort of thing the Gestapo would do!!! "Why not"? some people would ask - because it all depends on what you call serious ASBO - as I posted earlier one man was given an ASBO for allowing his spaniels to foul a public beach!!!
Dont worry Codders. If you feel your human rights are being infringed - you can go to the European courts on human rights.!!! But
I am glad that:
- they are thinking about banning C2H5OH in public places and that they
have "gestapo" type thugs to police it
- That the partial smoking ban will come into effect.
I dont want my life messed up by drunken idiots. I dont want to catch cancer by being in the same room as smokers. I use to smoke a pipe 15 years ago and was a stupid sod.It takes some 10 years to de-intoxicate yourself from the effects of smoking. Come back on the Canarys later. And the dog fowling bit- I would have had the dog and owner
Actually trying to get a court injunction to have my Belgium mother in law put down.
