Phone Hacking and Dog Fouling - Hugh Grant Pitches In!

Hugh Grant appears to have it all; good looks, money, fame, wit, charm, the list is endless. As we will all be aware, he was a victim of phone hacking. This would be enough to make most people annoyed. Hugh is no exception. He has tirelessly campaigned to hold the media to account for their actions.

It is therefore quite touching that, while speaking on this subject of real importance to him, he should suddenly lapse into expressing his views on dog fouling!

Hugh accepts that he is more obsessed with dog fouling than phone hacking and explains how he follows people about! He also complains that somebody's dog leaves excrement outside his house every day!

With a celebrity of this stature on our side, we cannot lose!

Hugh begins to express his views at 1.36secs on the following video.

Let's hear it for Hugh!

It's Getting Bad Where I Live

I live in a relatively quiet, peaceful place. That said, there are obviously bad things happening.

I walked down a quiet alleyway to see this sign, giving out a message of anti-social behaviour and general decline in acceptable behaviour. It did leave me a bit confused as I actually had no dog excrement with me to leave in the garden.

I must also observe that this is an excellent way of recycling a cardboard box.

The BBC, Our Operative, Scotland and Poo bags!

Once again, our thanks to our South London/North Kent Operative, Julian, for finding this vital information.

We can always rely on the BBC for information. Indeed the BBC is respected worldwide for the way it manages important issues with clarity and honesty. Dog fouling is no exception.

We learn from the BBC that The annual Marine Conservation Society beach litter survey pointed to an 11% increase in bags of dog faeces on UK beaches, including a 71% rise in Scotland.

"Pet owners have been thinking ahead by carrying plastic bags", said Lauren Davis, who co-ordinates the annual Beachwatch campaign but she added: "We hope our findings will now encourage them to take the bag off the beach and bin it in one of the many receptacles provided for the job."

So at least half of the "bag it and bin it" message has got across. This is a bit like reading "do not touch, 20,000 volts" and missing out the "not".

On the plus side, Lauren also reports: "We also saw a substantial dip of 33% in the amount of sewage-related debris on our beaches - that's the stuff people put down their loos but shouldn't, like cotton buds, condoms, sanitary towels and tampon applicators,"

I wonder if this is a deliberate "quid pro quo" act by the public? Less sewage-related debris, more dog poo?

I leave you with the view expressed by "Mooker" at comment 51: "Nothing wrong with a bit of dog dirt here and there. I freely allow my dog to defecate where it likes.

Just think of all the plastic bags it's saving just leaving it to nature.

Incidental, have you noticed the size of horse dirt?"

Has Mooker seen the horse dung posts on this blog? I know not but I despair! See the article here.

Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council and the British Bulldog!

Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council has featured on this blog before, see here.

It is clear that in Kent, the garden of England, they cherish all things English and British. This must be why they have chosen the British bulldog to front their latest poster campaign.

I came across this poster stuck to a dog waste bin. It initially confused me. We see a magnificent bulldog with its owners legs visible behind it. The headline confused me. Does it mean that the owner defecated on the pavement or does the "you" imply that I have defecated on the pavement?

Whatever the intended message, it is clearly a hard hitting image and caused me to reel and fall to the ground with fear. I pulled myself together and took the picture shown below. Please be warned, it could be disturbing!

St Paulinus Church of England Primary School Crayford - We Salute You!

I have mixed memories of my days at primary school in a quiet Cornish village. While the teachers had been recruited almost exclusively from the ranks of the intellectually and socially inadequate there were some lighter aspects to the experience.

Dog fouling was an issue in the village from my earliest days. Back then, we didn't really think about it. It was (and is) part of village life. The walk to school was more of a slide. In those days, most of us had lino as opposed to carpets. This was a good thing.

Looking back on it, the school must have been absolutely awash but expectations were different then and we must have been hardened to the stench before we actually started at school.

Thankfully, things have moved on. Teachers are now decent human beings and dog fouling is not acceptable. These two facts have combined at St Paulinus C of E Primary School in Crayford.

The letter below sums up the improvements. My parents generally received communications about my behaviour. I must, also, stress that nobody was ever harmed and no damage was done when I, and others, repeatedly rang the school from the village phone box, asked to speak to the headmaster and then set a banger off down the mouthpiece - repeatedly.

Back to the matter at hand. We applaud the efforts being made by St Paulinus school to eliminate the menace of dog fouling. If only I qualified to design a poster! I can see it now. It would be dripping with faeces and disease. It would shock, it would revolt, it would get the public on board!

Have a read of the letter below.

I can only just begin to imagine the foul state of the air in the assembly hall! I have emailed our support to the school and offered our assistance should it be required.

It's behind you !

A tattoo artist + a cheating girlfriend + a bottle of wine = a turd on your back !!

A FURIOUS woman is suing her ex-boyfriend after he tattooed a steaming poo on her back.

Rossie Brovent wants £60,000 in damages from her tattoo artist (ex) boyfriend Ryan Fitzjerald. Rossie, from Dayton, Ohio, US, wanted a Narnia scene inked on her back. But instead she was left with a pile of dog excrement with flies buzzing around it.

Tattoo artist Ryan turned rogue after discovering that Rossie had cheated on him with his best friend.
Rossie originally tried to have her ex-lover charged with assault but she had signed a consent form agreeing the tattoo design was "at the artist's discretion".

She said, "He tricked me by drinking a bottle of cheap wine with me and doing tequila shots before I signed it and got the tattoo ... actually I was passed out for most of the time and woke up to this horrible image on my back."

Don't know about you, but I think Rossie will look quite fetching on the beach this summer with this beauty of a tattoo.
