It’s all go in Malvern! According to the Malvern Gazette (I seldom read anything else) Police and council officials are clamping down on an infamous dogging area. Helpfully they give the precise location which on this warm sunny Friday is such a boon for would-be doggers.
The site will be closely monitored by police and the council is working with the land owner to encourage clearance of the land to make the site more visible from the road. You see, as things stand, once in the wooded area, nobody can see what you’re doing. Indeed, they might not know you’re there. This is unacceptable if we are to be suitably shocked. We must therefore remove the shrubbery, see the acts, and thus be suitably alarmed and distressed so that the act is illegal. Pure Alice in Wonderland stuff.
Meanwhile, Police are getting heavy with lorry drivers in another spot for using a lay-by as a toilet. Wouldn’t it be cheaper and socially more productive just to provide a toilet there? Sometimes, I do wonder what goes through the minds of public officials.
