The Truth about Goats
Having asked residents to tastefully score the Grenfell Tower tragedy ‘out of ten’, town councillors have proposed to rate Harold Shipman on Check-a-Trade and the Holocaust on Trip Advisor. Undeterred by the public outcry, Kensington branch of the Conservative Party are happy to now conflate an outbreak of graffiti at a local bus shelter, with the fall of the Roman Empire.
Some feel that comparing Grenfell to parking fines is slightly disproportionate but, as one Councillor said: ‘Grenfell victims just need to get a life – literally. Sometimes you need to quantify things, be it ‘The Wall Street Crash’ on Moneysupermarket.com or Judas Iscariot on Confused.com.’
Complained one grieving resident: ‘Having my family burned alive as an act of corporate manslaughter is troubling, but what really gets my goat, is that recycling has been moved from a Wednesday to a Thursday. It’s an outrage!
Kensington said that further leaflets will gage public opinion on Vlad the Impaler vs library closures and Idi Amin vs allotment planning. Said the Councillor: ‘On a range of local issues, we want to hear resident’s views – just not their votes’.
