    Wow... just... wow.

    What a terrible waste of police time and resources, just to prosecute a man for wearing a t-shirt with a harmless slogan on.

    I reckon that's pretty ridiculous. It's just a bit of humour. They use worse words on daytime TV.
    What a waste of £5 for that guy's T-Shirt, lol.

    It's clearly a joke and I highly doubt anyone was actually offended by it. Just some busy-bodies from the council trying to make themselves important.

    That's such a waste of what could be valuabe police time - better spent elsewhere me thinks.
    Were the police actually involved? The article doesn't mention the police at all only quotes from the local council. The impression I got was that this wasn't the police who did it but someone from the council.

    But that's also a waste of the council workers' time, they could've been doing something worthwhile in that time.

    Possibly although my experience of councils is that they never do anything worthwhile. Perosnally, I think we should scrap the current system of local government because it is a) inept b) effectively unnacountable (can you name your councillors and what they do?) c) counter-productive.

    I have no first-hand experience in the matter but I can't say I disagree. And there are serious flaws in the council system.

    I'd be more worried about those who would get violent over this T-Shirt, then the guy wearing it. Then again, thats just me, I'm sure the Council is full of rational, sensible peopl...hahahahaahaha...sorry, where was I?

    I'll assume it's an isolated incident, and not go off on a morning of 'the country is falling apart' dailymailesque hand wringing...but I'm soooo close. The left eye has started twitching...

    Surely that should be the right one?

    Here's an idea for local government: let the local MP appoint a cabinet to run the local government. That way the local MP is accountable for the actions of the council and everyone knows who their MP is. Plus, it means that MPs will be elected on the basis of their performance not on their party and we'd also remove an unnecessary layer of elected officials. Any ideas?

    You've got some really good ideas. IMO, much better than the current council system.

    What does everyone think?

    Threatened, but still.

    Discuss.
    The T-shirt wearer actually does look as though he hides bodies. Ha ha.
