THE STUPID BASTARDS GET PAID AT THE END OF THE WEEK ANYWAY … WHAT? ME WORRY? JERKS!

What the hell am I on about this time?  Same stupid stuff.  Really guys. This place makes me bonkers and this article from today’s Telegraph only scratches the surface.

The idiots at the council decree and others pay the price.  They still draw a salary while this place may have to close.  There are no repercussions against the rulings that hurt ppl. And btw, take a good look to the right of this photograph.  What do ya see there?  So how come the idiot council doesn’t decree that a fence be installed there?  But this lady’s shop sign is a danger.

Just so you know. DEVON is one (of several) of the most beautiful places in the world.  I’m partial I guess. Others have places they like more I’m sure.

Saying that, I can see where in an area like Devon, which has so much scenic beauty, a town council might demand that commercial signs not be put up and clutter the the roadside.  What an unwanted eyesore that would be.  But that isn’t the case here. That isn’t what they’re saying. 


Devon tea shop forced to remove sign due to health and safety

A village tea rooms owner in Devon has said she will be forced to close her business after a council ordered the removal of an advertising sign for health and safety reasons.

Published: 7:00AM BST 27 Jul 2009

Janice Voce was told the board pointing to her remote tea shop was a “potential hazard” to pedestrians, even though it was on an embankment with no footpath.

Within days of taking it down she saw her takings slump to just £8 a day.

Mrs Voce, 46, said she is being left with no option but to close the Fancy That Tea Shop in the village of East Budleigh, Devon, with the loss of five jobs.

The sign had been in place for a year without any complaints until Devon County Council intervened.

Villagers are rallying behind Mrs Voce and have drawn up a petition in protest at the local council.

Mrs Voce said: “My business is tucked away off the main road and without the sign pointing to us, no-one would know we are here.

“The sign is on a grass verge - nobody walks there and no-one in the village can understand how it is now a problem. As a result I have gone from doing a full trade and employing five people from the village to taking just £8 a day and having to get rid of all the weekday staff.

“It’s a difficult time for any business and we could do with some support from the local council. I’ve tried to explain to them that by asking me to do this they are effectively closing me down, but no-one seems to care. I will probably be shut before the end of the week.”

Christine Channon, a local councillor, is supporting Mrs Voce.

“There isn’t a footpath on the grass verge and there’s absolutely no reason for people to walk there,” she said. “The problem is that nowadays people are litigious. If it’s on land that belongs to the local authority, they would be held responsible so they have got to look at health and safety.”

A spokeswoman for the council said: “The Highways Act guidance says that no unauthorised items, such as advertising boards, should be displayed on the pavement.

“But in Devon our policy is more flexible; we do allow authorised displays on the pavement so long as they are immediately in front of the business.

“However in areas where the pavements are not that wide it can pose a potential hazard to passersby. The council has asked businesses in East Budleigh to take in their displays and most have done so willingly.”

  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
