Sometimes we have to fight for justice - all of us. Many of you will have read about the pensioner who was fined by Sandwell Council for dropping cigarette ash in the street. If you're not a smoker you perhaps don't have any sympathy, but I would ask you to consider the consequences of this behaviour from a council. What if you pulled your mobile out of your pocket and a receipt or a tissue happened to come with it without your knowledge. If you live in Sandwell, or one of these council areas which has these 'litter enforcement' officers.
Such a pity they're not around in my town on a Friday and Saturday night when the streets are litter with take-away cartons,chip wrappers and other rubbish, but it would appear that they're like traffic wardens and only work a 35 hour week.
The whole story is here and Ms Raccoon is asking for help from those qualified in English law. If you agree with the principle of her post then do give your support. For those who think Anna Raccoon is supporting 'one of her own' then you're wrong. She's a non-smoker but a woman who firmly believes in justice.
