    Such nonsense is par for the course these days for life in the UK.

    We seem to take the worse of officialdom from the USA and Europe, and then goldplate it.

    My local swimming pool now has one lane lane closed most of the time because there is some magic table that says how many square feet a single life guard can look after. The fact that the pool, like presumably many more in the UK, has not had any serious accidents since goddness knows when or indeed if ever, is ignored.

    What I don't understand is why he didn't try selling it to the local council building and works department, and then charge extra for delivery !

    I was picturing some good old boys, getting in their pickup late at night after downing a few cases of beer and looking for some flys they could sneak up on and then tip over.

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Thanks popdawg, you made me look!

    Fly-tipping or dumping is a British term for illegally dumping waste somewhere other than an authorized landfill. It is "the illegal deposit of any waste onto land i.e. waste dumped or tipped on a site with no licence to accept waste"
    I have never done any animal tipping, I didn't even knew what a cow tipping was until I saw the movie Barnyard.

    So I too, thought that Fly-tipping was some kind of Fly Abuse.

    I found myself whistling Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant" while reading it. This should make sense to at least some of the older folks on here.
