Default Tower Hamlets Council backs down after row with bike shop owners overfree air pump

*If the council had acted as sensibly as this in the beginning, there
would not have been an issue.*

Tower Hamlets Council said on Wednesday it had reached an agreement with
the couple and that the pump could remain there without a licence if
they moved it so there was space for the public to get past when people
are using it.

“We visited Isambard’s Cycles this morning to make clear that there is
no issue with having a pump outside the shop. We both agreed to move it
away from a lamppost so there was space for the public to get past when
people are using it.

Waste of tax payers' money yet again. We need to remove councils altogether. They are simply not needed.

An elderly man was stopped by the police around 2 a.m and was asked where he was going at that time of night.
The man replied, "I'm on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late."
The officer then said, "Really? Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?"
The man replied, "That would be my wife."

"...space for the public to get past..."

....which there clearly was not, as evidenced by the obstructive wooden
benches and other assorted junk which had been placed on the pavement as
seen in the picture referenced in the original thread?

Or had all that detritus already been removed?

I could have walked past easily.

If the council had been sensible, they would have ONLY said to move the pump away from the streetlamp. Nowhere else was the pavement made anywhere near narrow.

And why did the council not have to remove the streetlamp? It's just as much in the way. Screw the convenience of being able to see where you're going, what about all those disabled buggers who whine all the time?

the council as you always do when something gets in your way, you disgusting
