Smoke Free Smoke

Congratulations to Haringey council for winning my rarely given "Uber Prats of The Week" Award.

For why?

Just ask Walter Purkis & Sons (the oldest working fish smokehouse in London), which is facing closure after one person complained about the smoke to the council (funny how it only takes one complaint to cause Nanny to wet herself); who then told the owners that they can only use smoke-free wood.

Now the astute amongst you may notice a wee problem with that.


Yes, that's right, it's a farking smokehouse; it needs to use smoke to smoke the fish!

A council spokesman told the Mail:
"We are working closely with them to resolve the issue. 

Until then the owner has been asked not to use the smokehouse."
Haringey council, well deserving Uber Prats of The Week.

  1. Often we hear of twats that move to an area with a long established activity going on, who then complain about it......This is a typical case and of course, Nanny jumping in with her size fifties makes it even more typical.

    Another well deserved award indeed!

    The particularly nasty trait with the British is that when you give one a job, ANY job, they will quickly find a way that they can use their position to boss and bully people around.

    Anywhere else a complaint of this type made to a local council or its equivalent would be completely ignored. No action would be taken; but in Haringey someone has seized the opportunity to exercise their power and control.

    "We are working closely with them to resolve the issue.
    Until then the owner has been asked not to use the smokehouse."

    In other words, the council have asked the company to stop a legitimate business practice until such time as they can dream up some law that would make it illegal, and then shut them down completely.

  3. that sounds quite stupid but maybe on the other hand there might be a smokeless way of smoking fish. just a stupid thought as well. lol
