The proliferation of parish council bylaws are often the subject of ridicule and scorn.
I hate the them too. They seem so petty. Compliance is monitored by council jobsworths and enforced by the local magistrates court. Busybodies the lot of them ehh!!
The thing is, bylaws often come about because of repeated acts of irresponsible and selfish behaviour. Whether though the threat of a £100 fine actually deters that kind of behaviour I’m not sure.
The morons continue to be morons and get away with it most of the time. So the rest of us suffer a double whammy. We have to put up with the selfish acts of idiots, and are increasingly patronised and told what to do by paper pushing fools who don’t have the guts or gumption to deal with the problem effectively.
