'Tis the season for Bradford Council to be silly.
Last weekend they expressed concern that the Scroggling the Holly event could be dangerous. Someone might prick themselves on the holly and have a reaction and those sweets they give to children may contain nuts!
Well the nuts were out again this weekend before the Christmas markets. Thousands of parking cones were put by the roadside up to the Penistone Hill area where you'd be hard pushed to park a mountain goat never mind a car.
Suspicious eyes were cast over anyone selling mulled wine on the Main Street. Good God people might be enjoying themselves before Christmas and we can't have that can we?
Stop that Santa Claus laughing so loudly it might be a noise nuisance. Has that fairy been soliciting for business on Main Street? Clean up after that reindeer and turkeys may not be stuffed this year because it's a contravention of the International Court of Humans Rights rules about stuffing birds for pleasure.
