"OK Jerk pork-come out with your rice up!-it's a fair cop!"

Can you believe it?Eight of the Met's finest in stab proof vests alongside a small posse of Council officials entered a Caribbean restaurant and ordered it to be closed immediately because ot was operating within 400 yards of a school.
Thats right, because it was operating 'without planning permission 400 yards from a school AND a park the Council instructed that it be closed to prevent primary school children nipping in at lunchtime for a quick dose of cholesterol building jerk pork, rice and peas.
Now apart from the fact that it had been operating for three years unmolested and had only closed for re-furbishment, that it was not in fact a take-away,that it is surrounded by numerous fast food burgeries ,and the school that was being protected is a primary whose children are not allowed out at lunchtime anyway!

Apart from all that,how does it feel to live in a society where it is possible for a hard pressed Police service to be used to enforce a pointless council by-law in such a heavy handed way?

Presumably the logic is that if the youngsters walk say 410 yeard to the nearest MacDonalds they will have burnt off enough calories to justify the exclusion zone , or maube of course the little tubbies will have to run back to avoid being late for school and that way get fit!

An ingenious bit more of useless legislation invented by the well named Minister Balls.

But what is harder to believe that there is a Council anywhere in the UK who can be arsed to try and enforce such a regulation with a council leader prepared to defend this in public.

So step forward Clyde Loakes-leader of Waltham Forest Council and PPC for Northampton South.

I now understand why Loakes spends so little time in town-he has important legislation to implement down south!

Strange to say the school children that he is protecting so assidiously in Leytonstone from the perils of Caribbean jerk pork are the same ones who cluster around the ice-cream vans after school !
But Loakes is obviously a New Labour drone(sorry clone) prepared to do the bidding of any passing Cabinet Minister.
Could that be how he won the postal ballot in Northampton South so convincingly?


  1. It might not necessarily be the proximity of the restaurant to the school that was the problem. The restaurant sold jerk-Pork in an area where the population is almost 18% muslim, and the percentage of muslim school children nearer 25%. Food for thought!

  2. But they also sold jerk chicken! Food for thought?

    The big issue here though is whether or not it takes 7 police officers in stab vests to close a local takeaway for selling rice and peas without a licence?

    The world, or at least Waltham Forest, has gone mad. God help the restuarant trade in Northampton if this clown gets in. There can't be many restuarants on the Wellingborough Road not within 400m of a school or 200m of the park.

    So I guess he will want to close them all?

  3. The death knell sounds for all Ice-cream vans
