Birmingham Post Comment: Basket cases.
Pity they are a death trap, or so the bureaucrats would have us believe. Last month a Somerset publican was ordered to remove his prize petunias because they were hanging below the "8ft minimum height" laid down in health and safety regulations.
Now Staffordshire County Council has gone a step further by banning the hanging of baskets from lamp posts. Once again, health and safety factors are cited.
Another ludicrous over-reaction by town hall officialdom
