Pictured below is Alex Norris. He doesn't like mistakes being made and he's none to happy about the way you put your bins out.
|No, seriously, they were fucking out here! Her bloody cans were all the fucking way out here!|
"There will still be a fine there for people who deliberately make a mistake but it's going to be proportionate and if people settle it early it will be as little as £40." - Nottingham City Councillor Alex Norris
Deliberately make a mistake, eh?
Deliberately: Done with or marked by full consciousness of the nature and effects; intentional.
Mistake: An error or fault resulting from defective judgement, deficient knowledge, or carelessness.
Good grief! Is that an oxymoron?
Anyway, Alex also goes on to say:
"The Government talks about £1,000 prosecutions for people who leave bins out by accident. Now actually to have been given a fixed penalty notice [£110] in the first instance you must have left your bin out four times and to get the £1,000 fine you must have not paid that notice.
No one seems to pay much notice these days, Alex. No one.
Now then, where was I?
