Residents in the Ashley Down/St Andrews/Montpelier area of Bristol have just received this hilarious letter (see below). The following comments seem relevant:
a) This letter was clearly not just sent to my road and I suspect the opening statement is simply not true. A police letter that starts by sounding like a cheap estate agent does not inspire confidence.
b) It is full of typos and sub-literate grammatical turns. My favourite is where he apologises for the previous lack of inaction.
c) It starts with a threat. In short, if you complain about this policy by reference to what has always been the norm, we will regard you as a criminal.
d) It is contradictory. Is it now ok to park on the pavement if we leave a wheelchair’s width?
e) It ends asking us to all think of him as a friend 🙂
Hot Fuzz, eat your heart out.
