Mrs Brinkster reported to me that Central Road was awash yesterday with portable yellow signs threatening dire retribution, in the form of £80 on the spot fines, for those who transgressed the law of the land by dropping chewing gum, cigarette butts, KFC wrappers and litter of any form. To back up the yellow signs there was a regiment of Community Police (Bill Bryson's Private Army?) who spent some time patrolling Central Road, no doubt attempting to enforce things, and then disappeared as mysteriously as they'd arrived, taking their yellow signs with them and leaving Worcester Park without a trace of them ever being there.
And the point was????
