It is really a terrible thing to find out that your favourite, lovable best friend has gone missing, but to then discover that by displaying posters your favourite, lovable best friend on trees and lampposts if you live in the town of Bedford, England you are breaking the law and could end up with a $1750 fine is really taking the proverbial biscuit and probably the biscuit tin as well!
A gentleman called Mike Harding has recently discovered by putting up a series of A4-sized posters of his favourite, lovable best friend called Wookie, who has been missing since late November he is breaking the law and could end up with a $1750 fine.
In fact the local Bedford borough council has in no uncertain terms warned Mike of the offence he has committed – one of ‘flyposting’ and told him that must remove the posters within 48 hours or face the fine.
It is just this sort of petty mindedness that illustrates the character armour of local government! Sadly as far as I can tell poor Wookie is still missing and has been since late November, of course he poor human who must have torn all of his hair out by now wasn’t exactly helped by the local council was he.
